Synopsis

Being a Stuntman by Isabel Thomas

Falling through glass, being set on fire and high-speed car chases are all in a day's work for stuntmen and -women. This title takes a look behind the scenes and finds out what it takes to be a real-life action hero. It features famous stuntpeople such as Jackie Chan and Michelle Yeoh, as well as stunt doubles from films such as Spider-man, Indiana Jones and The Green Lantern.
