Tree O’Toole Stunt Reel 2011

Stuntwoman, actress and producer Teresa Tree O’Toole was born in St. Louis, Missouri and called North Carolina her home. She graduated from West Carteret High School in Morehead City, North Carolina. Tree was an elite boxer.

As an boxer, Teresa is highly accomplished in both 119 pound and 125 pound divisions. Her credits include: 2000 National Golden Gloves Champion (125), 2002 National PAL Champion (125), 2003 US Championships (125), 2003 National PAL Champion (125), 2004 National PAL Champion (125), and has been an invited/featured boxer on national club shows.

Saba Zerehi and Montana Mann produced and directed this piece on female boxers who were competing for the first time in history in the 2012 Olympics. Olympic Hook stars Tree O’Toole and Nancy McCrumb and was stunt and fight coordinated by Spice Williams Crosby.

While living in Nashville, Tree successfully participated in many competitions, including local bouts, Double Duel events, and an international event, the 2005 Ahmet Comert tournament in Istanbul. Of Tree’s amateur boxing career, Coach Halbert said, “Tree has successfully remained a top Olympic-style boxer for more than six years. She routinely faces the toughest competition, and constantly works to make herself better. Even if she doesn’t get the ‘win,’ Tree takes something meaningful away from every bout.”

In fall of 2005, the IOC announced that it would not add women’s events to the 2008 summer Games, making boxing the only sport without a single woman athlete. Even if they added women’s boxing to the 2012 Olympic Games, Tree would be past the age cap imposed on amateur boxers. Therefore, Tree left Nashville to more aggressively pursue her stunt career in Los Angeles, California. Tree began her professional stunt career in North Carolina on television shows and movies including The Muppet Movie (1979), Dawson’s Creek (2000-2002), and Domestic Disturbance (2001). Tree’s other credits include a Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (2008-2009), Annabelle (2014), Furious 7 (2015), Bright (2017), and The Conjuring 2 (2016).

Tree O’Toole is a member of SAG-AFTRA, a member of United Stuntwomen’s Association and sits on the Board of the Stuntwomen’s Foundation.
