BMEotD #116: Double Dare (2004)
While watching shows like Wonder Woman and The Bionic Woman, I always thought that Lynda Carter and Lindsay Wagner were total bad asses. I mean they are legendary in their own way, but they had a lot of help. Jeannie Epper was the stunt double for both actresses. So in the episodes with dangerous action situations, Epper is the one to take the hit. Along with this talented female, the documentary Double Dare, also highlights Zoe Bell, the stunt double for fellow Kiwi native Lucy Lawless a.k.a Xena: Warrior Princess. It’s extremely interesting following the careers of these women. You always want to know more.
By the way, I am not an oblivious person by any means. It’s just that I wanted to be able to say “oh man Xena kicks ass” or “oh look Wonder Woman just kicked that guy’s ass.” Even before watching this informative documentary, I always knew it wasn’t the actress all the time. I mean, look closely at the screen. Some of it’s down right obvious. I just felt the need to give a shout out to the women who made these characters superhuman and oh dare say it, “the sh*t”
