I've seen a lot of movies where the actor (and sometimes actress) will carry another person bridal-style. Are they actually lifting the other person or are they carrying a dummy that looks like the person?

    Er, if you see the face of the person being carried, it's probably real. Why is it such a stretch that people are carried around in movies? It's usually not that dangerous a stunt. – Walt Aug 1 '15 at 5:44

Probably real.

The effort of carrying a person is probably smaller than that of dressing up a dummy to look real.
