Kachina Dechert

Post date:



Kachina Dechert was born in London, England to Rock and Roll musicians Jody Linscott, who was the percussionist for The Who, Paul McCartney, Elton John, Tom Jones, and others, and Greg Dechert who was keyboards for Bad Company, Uriah Heap, and David Gilmore. Kachina spent most of her youth and teen years on the road touring the world with these bands.

Kachina, like a surprising amount of stuntwomen, was drawn to high speed vehicles and she began racing motorcycles both on and off road. Her skills on the track lead her to the world of stunts, where her size, look and athletic abilities led to a full time career in action. In an attempt to expand her skills, Kachina joined the stunt driving school, Drivers East, and became the only female on one of the top driving crews in the United States.

Kachina is British, American and Canadian and this has allowed her to film around the world on projects including Mission Impossible: Fallout (2018), The Mummy (2017), Inferno (2016), American Hustle (2013) and Gotham (2014). Kachina Dechert has doubled for a many actresses including Jessica Biel, Anette Benning, Mila Kunis, and Uma Thurman. Kachina was named stunt coordinator for two action series Caught and Jason Momoa’s Frontier. She is directing Jody Linscott: A Rock N Roll Life, a feature film documentary about her mother.

The Artemis Women in Action Film Festival 2018 honored Kachina Dechert with the Artemis Action Stunt Powerhouse Award for making an art of fearlessly performing sensational stunts.
