Double Trouble! – The Stunt Doubles Behind our Favorite Action Stars

Spread the word if you like it! 😉

Cate Blanchett and Zoë Bell

Zoë Bell is without a doubt the most legendary and well-regarded stunt performer in the industry. She rose to prominence doubling for Lucy Lawless in Xena: Warrior Princess and Uma Thurman in Kill Bill, two of the fiercest female characters ever created. Bell was Tarantino’s go-to stunts woman for years, but decided to take a little break in 2013. She finally decided to make a comeback four years later with Thor: Ragnarok. Zoë just couldn’t say no to being a part of the Marvel family and working side by side with the amazing Cate Blanchett.


Chris Pratt and Tony McFarr

When Chris Pratt and his double Tony McFarr met on the set of Jurassic World, they immediately clicked. Parks and Rec actor starred in a lot of action-packed movies since then, and guess who did the stunts? Despite his busy schedule, McFarr always found enough time to answer Pratt’s call and join him on his next big adventure.


Léa Seydoux and Gemita Samarra

Gemita Samarra’s resume is pretty empty right now, but it’s still extremely impressive. She doubled for Bond Girl Léa Seydoux in Spectre, and was a true natural since she looks like Seydoux’s long-lost sister. Samarra also did stunts for Diane Kruger and Ella Purnell, but it seems she’s more interested in documentary filmmaking and production.
