You may have heard of stunt woman Jessie Graff. Earlier this summer, the talented 32-year-old donned a two-piece Wonder Woman outfit and dominated the American Ninja Warrior course, giving other competitors serious competition. But even if you never heard of Graff, chances are, you've seen her work on film and television. She's done stuntwork for G.I. Joe, Transformers, Die Hard, The Dark Knight, Supergirl, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and Hawaii Five-0 just to name a few.
For Jessie, this career path came naturally at age three when she decided she was going to join the circus. Her parents supported their eager daughter by enrolling her in circus gymnastics classes, where her talents flourished and her appetite for performing grew even more. "My first activity was circus gymnastics because I was in love with the circus. I got into competitive gymnastics and really thrived on the performance of trying to reach your peak level and get stronger and more capable and having somewhere to direct the energy," says Graff.
