Show Reel Of The Week: Stuntwoman – Petra Sprecher

By Show Reel Of The Week


Give us your elevator pitch of who you are, what you do and what your skill set is.

My name is Petra Sprecher, I’m a stuntwoman known to double African-American actresses (and I’m also former Cloudswing artist for Cirque du Soleil).

I just finished a full run on CBS’ reality competition series “The World’s Best”, created by Mark Burnett, as one of the international judges, representing my home country Switzerland.

What is your ideal role?

In terms of stunts, that would be any gig involving flying through the air! Namely wire-work. It’s dear to my heart and closest to my Aerialist Circus background.

I have to say though that I’ve truly enjoyed a whole new role on that reality series, as the judge! I certainly would welcome more jobs of that nature, or even hosting a show altogether.

Name your top 5 credits.

From oldest to newest:

1. Minority Report
2. The Time Machine
3. Pirates of the Caribbean
4. Flight
5. Independence Day: Resurgence
And…. Ad Astra (starring Brad Pitt – Coming soon)

Where do you find your inspiration?

In nature. In meditation. …and of course in the movies! The characters in a James Bond film inspire me!!!

What motivates you to keep performing/creating?

I’ve been on stage since I was 6 years old. I don’t need additional motivation. I just have it. It’s in me. It’s always with me. I love show business.

What should TheatreArtLife readers know about you?

That I’m super tenacious! Not everything always goes my way – yet I keep treading!
I’m super generous! I love giving gifts. Oh – don’t make me angry!
