Dictionary Meaning and Definition on 'Stuntman'

Wikipedia Meaning and Definition on 'Stuntman'

A stunt performer or stuntman or daredevil is someone who performs dangerous stunts, often as a career.

These stunts are sometimes rigged so that they look dangerous while still having safety mechanisms, but often they are as dangerous as they appear to be. There is an inherent risk in the performance of all stunt work in film, television and stage work, with more risk in performing stunts in front of a live audience because safety mechanisms cannot be edited out. Daredevil performers are distinct from stunt performers and stunt doubles, as they perform their stunts purely for the sake of the stunt itself, often before an audience for their entertainment and personal monetary gain for the event, while a stunt performer, or stunt double typically performs stunts intended for use in a motion pictures or dramatized television (although one person could certainly be both, as was the case with Harry Houdini, Jackie Chan, Tony Jaa and others). Stunt performers and stunt doubles are generally skilled at performing physical action in character for film and television.
