With the death of Indy Car driver, Paul Dana, I am reminded that high risks jobs, such as race car drivers, stuntmen, and the military, there is always that potential for serious injury and sometimes even death. Being a professional stuntwoman, I have defiantly thought about this. Yesterday at work I got a fat lip and cut my face some (I will write more about this once the show airs in a few weeks). Not a big deal but I am reminded that injuries happen in high risk jobs.
My dad has always said "Never do a stunt once that you wouldn't do twice." Being a stuntwoman is a dangerous job and getting injured is always a possibility. However, for me, at this point in my life I can't imagine doing anything else even with my fat lip.
Picture: We took this picture after my face got cut up then cleaned by the on set medic. You can't see from this picture but inside my mouth is black and blue.
