With a name like Diesel, what did you expect? Another actor from The Fast and the Furious franchise, there are always plenty of high-flying vehicle stunts to do, as well as fistfights, gunfights, and acrobatic moves. Diesel has had plenty of experience doing his own stunts thanks to movies like Saving Private Ryan, the XXX films, and The Chronicles of Riddick franchise.
Beyond physical feats, his voice gets a chance to shine, including as everyone’s favorite tree person Groot, as well as the title character from The Iron Giant. We wonder if he does his own stunts when he plays Dungeons and Dragons (he’s a big fan).
Jennifer Lawrence isn't the only member of The Hunger Games cast that does her own stunts. Josh Hutcherson, who plays Katniss's love interest throughout the series, engages in combat on multiple occasions, does plenty of acrobatic acts, and, after four films, does plenty of other fun stunts.
While Hutcherson has appeared in a number of other films (such as Bridge to Terabithia and Zathura: A Space Adventure), his first time doing most of his own stunts came from Hunger Games. It's possible producers wanted their principal actors to do their own stunts for more authenticity because both of the main actors of this action series do their own – a rarity.
Stephen Amell isn't the only member of the Arrowverse who performs eye-popping stunts. Caity Lotz, who plays Sara Lance (aka White Canary) in Legends of Tomorrow has a huge diversity of physical talent that she loves to show off.
Not only acting, and not only singing and dancing, Lotz also has skills in a variety of martial arts such as Wushu, Krav Maga, Muay Thai, and Tae Kwan Do. She even gets to show off her parkour skills every once in a while. She does pretty much all of it on her own, except for stunts that might result in serious injury.
From gymnastics to the circus to the movies, Lancaster had a life full of doing his own stunts. After serving in World War II, Lancaster found his way to the movies and waved the stuntmen away.
His breakthrough role was the film noir movie The Killers alongside Ava Gardner, and then he starred in the smash hit From Here to Eternity. He started his own production company with a few friends, and in the first film, Trapeze, Lancaster channeled his old skills to play a circus performer, doing his own stunts. The film was a big box-office success.
While not part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Chloe Bennet still plays a Marvel character. Anyone in a piece of Marvel work is going to have her work cut out for her, and Bennet's role of Quake in the Marvel TV series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has her performing plenty of difficult stunts and getting into dangerous fights.
What Bennet does is even more impressive than a normal MCU actor. With multiple seasons of the show to fight through, Bennet has no lack of stunts on her plate, meaning she has to keep learning, preparing, and training. Her ability to roll with the punches (literally) has formed her into a powerful actress who has the skills to pay the bills.
