Dan Marino To Be Inducted Into Madame Tussaud’s
Hall of Fame NFL Quarterback Dan Marino will come face to face with his wax double when he unveils his own figure for Madame Tussauds Orlando at Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Fla., at the pre-event press conference for the 5th Annual Dan Marino Foundation WalkAbout Autism & Expo on Jan. 24, 2015. The figure will then travel to its permanent home in Orlando, just in time for the celebrity wax attraction’s spring 2015 grand opening.
Marino is widely considered one of the top quarterbacks in NFL history, having been drafted by legendary coach Don Shula, and with his golden arm, led the Miami Dolphins to multiple playoffs appearances throughout his record-breaking 17-season career. After his career, he served as a studio analyst for CBS and HBO. In addition to his long-term community and charitable commitments, including the Dan Marino Foundation, Marino currently serves as a special advisor to the Miami Dolphins.
“It was such a unique experience to work with the talented team at Madame Tussauds, I can’t wait to see what they have created,” said Dan Marino. “It will be nice to see that jersey take a break from retirement!”
Madame Tussauds is world-renowned for the creation of detailed and lifelike wax figures that pay homage to A-list celebrities from film and television, sports icons, musicians from all genres, and notable figures from history and pop culture.
