Stunt double/man/woman

stunt man/woman noun [C]: a man or woman who performs stunts (proezas), especially instead of an actor in a film or television programme ("doble de riesgo" - Cambridge Dictionaries Online). Although some stars like Tom Cruise or Charlize Theron usually perform their own stunts, many other Hollywood celebrities are known to be associated to their stunt doubles for decades. Here, Nash Edgerton, who started as a stunt performer and made it to the top from the other side of the camera.
