'I Trust Her With My Life': Michelle Rodriguez Introduces Us To Her Stuntwomen

It was on the set of the original The Fast and the Furious 20 years ago that actress Michelle Rodriguez met stunt performer Debbie Evans.

Evans was hired to do all of the stunt driving for Rodriguez’s perhaps most popular character, Letty Ortiz—a street racer, mechanic and member of a professional carjacking crew.

Narrated by Rodriguez, the film introduces viewers to some of the stuntwomen in Hollywood who put their lives on the line to create electrifying scenes in TV shows like DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Specifically Stephanie Zimbalist in the 1980s TV series Remington Steele and actress Linda Hamilton in the 1991 action sci-fi movie Terminator 2: Judgement Day .

Since making her film debut as a boxer in the 2000 sports drama Girlfight , the 42-year-old actress has built a strong reputation for herself by taking on physically demanding roles in movies like S.W.A.T.

Aside from Evans, the Latina actress also worked with Heidi Moneymaker on Fast & Furious films, Megan Abubo in Blue Crush , Lisa Holye in Battle Los Angeles and Olivia Bird in Widows and many others.
