Nov 15, 2020, 03:22 PM
Matthew Stirling chats to Jimmy Carpenter about the sliding doors moment that led him to become one of the best stuntmen in film.

From starring with Daniel Craig in the James Bond movie Spectre to a fight scene with Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson in Fast and Furious 6, Matthew gives us an insight into the inner workings of his job.

Matthew talks about the tough training requirements from a minimum of 200 skydives, to learning two martial arts, to gold standard trampolining. 

Despite his professionalism, broken body parts can go with the job; he once snapped his bicep! Matthew says how a well reported tragedy on the set of a Harry Potter film led him to starring on ITV's Britain's Got Talent.  

Matthew is currently working on the new Batman and Jurassic Park films, plus he's advising magic on the set of Doctor Strange.

Finally, Matthew shares the life advice Sir Michael Caine once gave him.
