Angelina Jolie's stunt double found doing 'truck transfers' in Salt fun
Angelina Jolie's stunt double, Janene Carleton, who is the body behind death-defying stunts in films like 'Watchmen' and the 'Twilight Saga', has revealed that doing the truck transfers in 'Salt' was "really cool".
She said that those are always the most fun because they’re seen by the most number of people, the Daily Telegraph reported.
The 35-year-old, who is in Sydney to launch P ‘n’ O’s action-packed cruise experience, Edge, started her career in the industry working with animals and training horses to perform stunts in films, before she began doubling for actors in riding scenes.
She told Confidential that one stunt that stands out in her mind was when she was lit on fire and had to wrap her arms around another stunt performer to set him on fire.
The Hollywood stuntwoman said that it wasn’t technically difficult, but was pressurising, as she had to make sure that her fire burn along with the other performer went well.
