The Newham Recorder
has published an interesting interview with Jaime Blake, who doubled Halle Berry in "Die Another Day", and won the Taurus Stunt Award 2003 for her work:
Film fans across the world have seen Jaime Blake, 26, doing a backwards somersault from the top of a ladder over a sword in a burning plane and being blown up.
