Jennifer Morrison Does Her Own Stunts on Once Upon a Time!
On Once Upon a Time, there are occasionally scenes in which swords, magic beams of light, spells, and other things are used for epic fights. Though we didn’t see as many in Season 2, that doesn’t mean the stars weren’t prepared for a crazy one at the drop of a hat.
Recently, one actress revealed that she doesn’t have a stunt double — or at least she tries not to use one. Given her character’s tough exterior, it makes sense that Jennifer Morrison (Emma Swan) likes to be independent and do things on her own, but we have to wonder if she really climbed a giant beanstalk and fell to the ground, or if that was all the magic of green screen and behind-the-scenes help.
Nonetheless, we’re still impressed. On July 13, during a Q&A session with fans on Twitter, she revealed that unless it’s very dangerous, she does her own stunts. She wrote:
@SamanthaCorsino I love doing my own stunts whenever I can. every once in a while it is too dangerous but otherwise I love it! #askjen
You go, Jen! The savior clearly knows what’s up. Now we’re curious who else does their own stunts. Ginnifer? Lana? Hopefully they reveal their secrets soon, too! Given that OUAT Season 3 premieres on Sunday, September 29, 2013 at 8 p.m. ET/PT, we don’t have that much longer to wait and see some fights and stunts first-hand!
