#84 - Ky Furneaux On Life As A Stunt Double, Marvel’s Thor & Survival Expertise

Ky Furneaux is an Australian outdoor guide, TV host, survival expert and stunt person who has appeared in over 50 films and TV productions.

We start off with Ky sharing with us the nickname we gave her then proceeds to telling us about herself. We ask her how she got into being a stunt-performer. She goes into the details and also lets us know about the kind of training that people in this field undergo. She also tells us about the movies that she’s been in.

Ky had stunt-doubled for Jaimie Alexander in Marvel’s Thor and she details that experience with us. She talks about the overall highlights of her career, like how she won the Taurus Stunt Award and work in other movies. She also talks about what it’s like to get naked in front of the camera. Movies aside, we also talk about her skills as a survival expert.

This is another great episode, one that’s full of entertainment. We got to briefly look into the life of a person that helps make movies awesome! We know you guys will love this episode.
