I am a winner!

I am happy to say that I won my first award as a stuntwoman...I won a SAG Award! The award show was last weekend and I haven't had a chance to tell you guys (due to my surgery). I along with 15 or so other won a SAG award for Outstanding Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Television Series for Heroes. I double Ali Larter as well as a few guest stars that have come on the show. I was nominated last year for Lost but we didn't win.

Last year was the first year that stunts were acknowledge at the SAG Awards (SAG stands for Screen Actors Guild which is the union all stunt people and actors are a part of). We are the only winners not announced at the televised show. Sometimes I think Hollywood doesn't want to ruin the illusion that there are stunt people. Some people get up set by that and others are ok with being behind the scenes.

I am just happy to have won!

Wisdom Teeth

Not sure why they call them wisdom teeth but I am having surgery to remove all 4 of them today. Not very excited about it but I am happy to not have my mouth hurt. Pray for a quick recovery because I have to work Thursday night.

Jon worked yesterday and accidental got punched in the face. He took one right in the nose. I guess it all comes with the job. Everyone wants to be a stuntman until they get hurt.

Catching Up

It has been forever since I last posted. Sorry...the holiday times just get crazy. To catch you up first off, Jon and I worked on the movie the Wrester last year. Do you remember last year when I wrote about my friend Brian who was the triple amputee? That was the movie I worked on with him. It is great to see how well the movie did. The director was really nice and you could just tell he had a vision of what he wanted. If you do see it prepare yourself for a lot of nudity.

Jon and I have started the new year out with well with work. We have both been working which is great. Jon has worked on CSI:NY and Grey's Anatomy and I have been working on Ghost Whisperer. Next week we both will be doing motion capture for a video game. Work is good!

Last week our dog got poised somehow by something she ate. She almost died it was so scary. We rushed her to the pet hospital and they kept her over night. She is fine now but it was really scary. I can't imagine having a kid that got sick when I was so upset by my dog. Crazy how much you love we love our dog.
