Shawnna Thibodeau

Post date:



Shawnna Thibodeau is known for her work on The Bourne Ultimatum (2007), I Am Legend (2007) and The Bourne Legacy (2012).

As a child Shawnna was always taking risks, jumping off the roof, standing on the seat of her bicycle while riding it down the street. When she got older it was her mother’s suggestion that she get paid for her antics and Shawnna moved to New York where she picked up stunt work among other jobs until things picked up in 2000.

At first there were not too many jobs for a 5 foot 10 inch stuntwoman, but its wasn’t long before she was stunt doubling. She has stunt doubled for Charlize Theron, in Hancock (2008) and In the Valley of Elah (2007), and for Uma Thurman and Nicole Kidman. She was even a stunt double for Adrianne Palicki on Red Dawn (1984) while she was recovering from an accident that happened during the filming of a Nike Ad where she tore her ACL and MCL, shattered her meniscus and broke her patella. You can’t keep a great stuntwoman down.

Shawnna Thibodeau knows that not everyone is built to do stunts and its not something you can learn just by taking classes. Its really about being able to relax as you jump off things and let things hit you and while hitting the ground.
