Before #Scandal @kerrywashington #Gladiators

“Save The Last Dance” was Directed by Thomas Carter it was shot in Chicago. One of my first out town jobs as a Stuntwoman. I got to work with one of my closest friends Nicole Callender. She and I were cast to be teenagers in the High school. We did a fight in the hallway in the school. I remember Nicole slamming me into the hall lockers and then I threw her to the floor. We then continued to roll around on the floor kicking and screaming at each other while pulling hair!  As Kerry, Julia Stiles and Sean Patrick Harris watched from the stair case. Unfortunately that scene ended up getting cut!! This was before she was Olivia Pope!

Angela Meryl, a former model and make-up artist from Willingboro, New Jersey, received her first stunt gig alongside actor Sinbad, in the movie First Kidd. The game changer occurred when she came crashing through a glass table in the opening scene of Kill Bill Volume I, while doubling Vivica A. Fox. That performance garnered industry wide recognition and applause from peers in the business and fans to this day of the Quentin Tarantino directed cult flick hit.
