Acting is an incredibly challenging job that requires actors to give and do a lot, but some actors take things even further by doing their own stunts. It takes a huge amount to make a movie, with most of the work that goes into the project never actually being seen in the finished product. From costume designers to cameramen, and from the sound department to the special effects, there is a lot that happens behind the scenes. However, one important aspect that is intended to be on-screen, but carefully constructed to hide key details, is the stunt team.

Actors typically put a lot of themselves into their performance, but where the line tends to be drawn is when it risks affecting their health or safety. That’s where stunt teams come in. When an actor performing a dangerous scene could result in injury, or if the scene requires intense action like fighting or acrobatics that the actor is not able to perform, movies use stunt actors to fill in and make the actor look good. However, there are some actors in Hollywood who choose to do either all, or the vast majority of their own stunts.

Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise is one of the most notable names in acting who chooses to do his own stunts. Having grown in popularity at breakneck speed, he quickly became an action star in the 1980s. The following decade, he began starring in a series of action films called Mission: Impossible. However, from his first action role in 1986’s Top Gun, he chose to take risks and try his hand at doing his own stunts. That choice almost cost his life when he nearly drowned on set (via THR), but that hasn’t stopped him from continuing to do many of his own stunts to this day.

Jackie Chan

Jackie Chan’s career as an actor began when he was just 5 years old, appearing in minor roles in Chinese films. As he grew, he continued to work in TV and films, and did so consistently throughout his life. In 1972, he was working as a stunt double for the villain in a Bruce Lee movie, Fist of Fury, and just over 10 years later, he had established his own stunt company to choreograph and assist with other films. His charisma and charm, however, meant that he was soon performing in leading roles, while also doing the stunt work for most of his films.
