Did You Know?


Had to perform the stunt work for the explosive finale of the horror film Inferno (1980). In interviews, he said it was an intense experience as the rest of the crew and equipment were protected by multiple layers of Plexiglas while he had to run without protection through the sets rigged to explode and burn. He said "When you feel glass flying by you like a Harrier jet, you never forget it!". See more »
