Anthony Ramos says he was thrown 30 feet in the air for a stunt scene but didn't go for a stunt double
The stars of the newly released Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, Anthony Ramos and Dominique Fishback, have revealed how they performed their demanding action sequences without using stunt doubles.
Anthony Ramos, who plays the character of Noah in the movie, has disclosed that he chose to shoot the action scenes on his own, as he was strongly opposed to employing a stunt double.
“We shot that scene for days! I was getting thrown 30 feet in the air, then I’d land and get thrown again. They had to add extra shooting days because I wanted to do it all myself and not use a double. It was hard, but the truth is, I wouldn’t have it any other way."
Dominique Fishback, who plays the anthropologist Elena Wallace in the upcoming Transformers film, shares Anthony Ramos' sentiment about performing stunts.
Fishback expressed her enthusiasm at having the chance to execute some of her own stunts, which she found to be an enjoyable experience.
Fishback said, “Like Anthony, I got to do some really cool stunts of my own, like hanging from a bridge by one arm!”
“The harnesses you have to wear for the stunts are very uncomfortable, but I’ve always been an athletic person, so I tried to do as much of the action as I could. The whole experience was fun, but a lot of work too.”
In Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, Optimus Prime and the Autobots will join forces with the Maximals, a mighty group of Transformers, to protect Earth from a novel threat capable of annihilating the entire planet.
