Crystal Michelle was born in Southern California and raised in Northern California. She works in film and television, as a model, and spends time working with at risk youth. Crystal was nominated for outstanding performance by a stunt ensemble in a television series for True Blood (2010 & 2011), and won the 17th annual Screen Actors Guild Award for the hit series True Blood. She was also a stunt performer for the Emmy-winning episode Wednesday for the show Southland, and was a 2-time finalist for the Diamond in the Raw’s Celebrity & Stuntwomen Awards for the Dynamic Duo DUO category.

Crystal became active in sports at a young age. She excelled and began competing professionally in Track & Field-Northern Division for the CCS, and NCAA Tournament Finals. When she was only 13 she began modeling and working for various clients including Puma, Tommy Hilfiger, Nordstrom, Levi apparel, Lucy and others. She received a scholarship to college competing in track & field.

Given her extraordinary athleticism, and her ability to run, jump and to excel in dance and gymnastics, when she was introduced to stunt work she knew she had found her niche and she eagerly joined the stunt industry. Her first major job was stunt doubling Halle Berry in Gothica (2003). Since then she has amassed over 84 credits in only 16 years, and that does not include her work in commercials. She has done stunt work doubling for Sanaa Lathan, Rutina Wesly, and Lupita Nyong’o.

She is also part of the Marvel Universe, working in Blank Panther (2018), Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and Avengers: End Game (2019).

Crystal has performed Pratt falls, harness/wire-work, water work, crashes, ratchets, camera fights, stair falls, squib hits, high falls, precision driving and fire stunts for numerous commercials, television, theatrical, print, and live shows.

In addition to performing stunts, Crystal has developed a line of protective pads and body suits that can be worn under the slim garments that most female characters wear. These pads allow scantly clad women who are forced to fall or get hit to have protection for the landing.

Crystal Michelle is also dedicated to helping at risk youth in her community.
