  1. I knew she seemed kinda familiar! I would recognise the person falling in divergent almost anywhere! I watched that scene so many times and would always say to myself 'dang, that stunt double looks nothing like Woodsley but that's an epic jump'

  2. It's about time that a lady stuntperson gets some recognition for a change!! The men always get all the attention, so… YOU GO GIRL!!!

  3. they gotta fix these skimpy outfits on women characters, man. it's demeaning and hurts the poor stuntwomen.

  4. I feel like with all the technology and special effects that modern film companies have at their disposal now, actual people shouldn’t even need to be placed in these types of risky positions. If they can realistically make it look like there’s a man on the moon or a sinking ship in the middle of the ocean, certainly they can make an actress look like she’s doing her own stunts.

  5. The fact that she did that jump in Divergent completely wireless is terrifying. "Yeah I could have died, but there were empty cardboard boxes so nbd!"

  6. Imagine filming a fight scene with your wife/husband and pushing them through a door lol

  7. New movie crediting idea: list main stunt double directly below each actor’s name/list stunt doubles and actors names in a list after character name

  8. If you don’t mind cracking your ribs, this is a really cool way to be the “lead” in some of the most important movie scenes
