Working on Heroes

I have been doubling Ali Larter on a movie and this week I was hired to double her on Heroes. It was a big step to double and an actor on a movie and on their TV show. She has been great to work with. I work on the movie again this weekend to finish up the movie. The movie will be great and you will have to see.

Jon is back in Boston working on a the Bruce Willis movie the Surrogates. He had a hard day of stunts today and I have very happy for him. He really is becoming a great stunt guy. He flies home Saturday afternoon and works on another show Saturday night. Busy busy. Sometimes work leaves little time to sleep. I know he will be tired when he is done but he needs to rest because he is doing a car hit next week. It won't be shot like mine and as brutal luckily but it still will be a tough stunt. I am proud of him.

I have been working like crazy which is really great but I am really tired. I have had two days off in the last three weeks and I have been doing some physically hard stunts where I am bruised and banged up. It is crazy when you are working 14 hours a day and commuting 3 that you have little time to even sleep. I love to work and in this business you have to take it when you can get it. Jon has also been working a lot which is also good because if SAG goes on strike at the end of the month (which could happen) we will be all set.

I think the people I work with think I am little crazy because I just don't hold back when I am doing stunts. I give my all and sell out every time and believe that if you don't have a heart for stunts don't waist my time. I love stunts and it is my passion and I am happy that I have the honor to make a living doing it. Yes, it is hard when I come home all banged up but the adrenaline rush I get is amazing. I use to pay people for stuff like that now I get paid for it. I couldn't be happier with my job.

However with working so much we have had little time to spend on our house. We still have some stuff in boxes and still have many projects that are in limbo. I guess we will get to them in time. My mom and aunt are coming out in July to help so that will be really great. In the mean time we are pluging away. If I haven' returned your phone call don't get mad I will call you soon. cheers!

Keeping Busy

Between being new home owners, working and working out I find little time for anything else lately. I did manage to go to the Dodgers game last night for my friends birthday.

The hair people on the movie I am working on had my hair highlighted by the girl I am doubling's hair colorist to match the actresses exactly. It is still blond just a different shade now. They did this last year when I worked on National Treasure 2. It is great to get my hair done and not have to pay for it. I love it!

Jonny flew to Boston on Tuesday to work on a movie called the The Surrogates. He gets home next week. I miss him! Normally I would go with him but I have to stay here to work. I have been busy working with little time off which is good since our SAG contract with the producers is up at the end of the month and SAG could strike. Who knows if we will or not but it is looming over the business right now. We will see. I am not too worried about it. If we do strike it is vacation time!
