He's a hell of a stuntman - in his early days one of the guys sliding down the ropes into the volcano base in You Only Live Twice -
|Vic Armstrong is in there somewhere!|
He doubled Roger Moore during his Bond tenure. He handled some of Superman's biggest stunts for Christopher Reeve. He was such a good double for Harrison Ford in the Indiana Jones movies people would mix them up on set.
|That's Vic on the left. Er, right.|
Since then he's coordinated the stunt teams for big movies; and moved in to directing - both second unit and stunts, and feature films like Army of One with Dolph Lundgren.
|Vic worked on three of the four Pierce Brosnan 007 movies.|
I got to work directly for him when he directed second unit for the George Lucas production Radioland Murders - and when I met him at a show twenty years later - Mr. Armstrong remembered me! (The 87,000 James Bond questions I asked him on set back then may have helped his memory...)
One other thing: Vic Armstrong knows good blogging when he sees it too.
Thank you Mr. Armstrong!
