BURRILLVILLE, R.I. (WPRI) — Rhode Island native Becca GT is now a professional stuntwoman with close to 130 credits on her resume.
The 1996 Burrillville High School graduate has appeared in “Ghostbusters,” “Russian Doll” and “Orange is the New Black.”
Becca said she started getting her adrenaline kicks growing up in Burrillville on a horse farm.
“When I was younger, me and my friend used to borrow her brother’s four-wheeler, and we would go tearing around all over the place. My mom would somehow would always catch us,” she said.
Her path to becoming a stuntwoman was not a direct one.
“I went the typical college and got the push papers desk job,” Becca said. “Then I discovered later in life, ‘Oh wow, this is something I could actually do and get paid for and make a career out of.'”
Becca said one of the craziest things she’s ever done on set is get hit by a car.
“You’re standing there on the day. It’s three in the morning, and it’s freezing out,” she said. “You’re just walking across the street, like, ‘Yup, I am going to get hit by a car and I just can’t wait to get this over and done with.'”
While adrenaline comes with the territory, Becca does not describe herself as a daredevil.
“Daredevils are the ones that can perform it once. ‘Here, hold my beer, watch this,'” Becca explained. “A professional stunt performer can do the same thing over and over.”
