The Polish stuntman is making a career in Hollywood

In his career, he collaborated with Angelina Jolie, Daniel Craig, Ryan Reynolds and Henry Cavill. 👍 How did it happen that a boy from Stalowa Wola, who was supposed to be a basketball player, ended up in the film industry? – When I moved to the UK to play basketball, a production company called my team asking if they had basketball players over 190 cm tall because they needed them to act as an actor in their film. 💪 This is how it started – said Jacek Jagódka, stuntman and actor in an interview with Robert Stockinger.
The road to being a full-time stuntman was not easy. – I had to master faith jumping, swimming, martial arts, horse riding, climbing and diving. It took me some time, but it worked out and I finally got my first role in “Tarzan” – recalled Jagódka. 💪👍🇵🇱
Does a stuntman have to have acting talent? – Yes, the viewer must believe what we are doing. The stuntman is actually an actor who does not utter any text – he said.
In which productions can you see him?
– “James Bond”, “Star Wars”, “Jurassic Word” or “Wonder Woman” – he stated. 👍
Dreams for the future
In an interview with Robert Stockinger, the stuntman confessed that he would very much like to make a film in Poland. But this is not the only dream Jacek Jagódka has. – I would like to record something completely different, i.e. a culinary program about veganism. He has been following such a diet for eight years. I think that the combination of a healthy food program and action can result in a good TV show – he said in an interview with our reporter.
