10 Actors Who Do Their Own Stunts
Can you name all 10 actors who do their own stunts? Let’s give it a try!
Nowadays, technology is so advanced that is no need for stunt doubles anymore. First it was the stunt double and now it is the technology that is replacing the actor when the things get more intense.
Most of the new actors choose that kind of alternative, because they say, their health and career are more important.
However, there are still a handful of good actors and actresses who are determined to perform their own stunts, regardless of what anyone says.
They, my friends, are the real deal. I consider those kinds of people very brave and dedicated to their movies 100%. Because at the end of the day, it is more important to feel like you’ve done more than you could for a project.
In the end, all that matters is the experience, not the fact that you did a movie. Am I right? Correct me if I’m wrong, but I have an enormous respect for those actors who perform their own stunts, because I see them more willing to give us the best experience possible.
Don’t get me wrong though, I respect anyone that can give me the feeling that I have seen a great movie. Because with all this technology, it is hard not to relate on it and just continue saying your lines and you done.
But that’s enough chatting about this matter! Let’s see the 10 actors who do their own stunts!
