The Basler woman jumps into the breach for Hollywood Stars
If it gets dangerous, she jumps in: Petra Sprecher has been a stunt woman in Hollywood for two decades and has already appeared in films with Tom Cruise and Charlize Theron. Now the Basel woman also wants to start as a show player.

Next level inclusion: after 20 years as a stuntwoman in Hollywood, Swiss-born Petra Sprecher hopes not only to be seen but also to be heard on screen. Accent and all.
As a kid, Petra Sprecher just could not sit still. Not much has changed since then. For twenty years, she has been jumping, falling and flying through the air as a stuntwoman in Hollywood films and TV shows such as Ad Astra, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Westworld and Loki. “It’s been quite a ride, but also a hustle,” says Sprecher, who has doubled, among others, Mariah Carey, Kimberly Elise and, most recently, Naomi Ackie in the upcoming thriller Pussy Island, directed by Zoë Kravitz.
