Stunt Performer Spotlight: Marche Day

Featured Interview With Stunt Performer, Marche Day.

Tell about yourself and stunts, Marche!

I am an Atlanta local originally from Washington, D.C.  I like to refer to myself as a blank slate in the stunt community, meaning I don’t have a specific background.

I have played team sports since primary school; adding in fighting, horseback riding, and weapons work within the last few years. I am always willing to learn new skills and develop further.

What inspired you to become a stunt person?

I was inspired to become a stunt woman after watching a behind the scenes feature on WONDER WOMAN.  The talented athletes & stuntwoman opened my eyes to a whole new world. While I didn’t start training right away the idea floated around in back of my head.

It wasn’t until I had the pleasure of meeting and speaking with a talented stuntwoman that I really began planning it out and started training.  I am so thankful everyday that I was able to learn from her.

What is your greatest skill as a stunt performer, is there a story behind it?

I believe my greatest skill as a performer is not any physical attribute, but mental.  My ability to listen and learn while constantly wanting to grow is my greatest asset.

I am a student of life and I believe if you are willing to be quite, listen, and learn you can go very far.

What is the best part about being a stunt performer?

The best part about being a stunt performer is the journey.  You are always growing, learning new skills, discovering new talents, surpassing mental and physical limits you’ve placed on yourself.

What advice would you give other stunt people?

I’m relatively new to the stunt community but I would advise anyone looking to start a career in stunts to kill your ego.

There will be someone that is better than you, there will be someone else who gets the job you wanted, etc...  Killing your ego will allow you to focus on you and succeed.
