Meet Lemuel

Meet Lem, he’s a real-life dragonslayer. Well maybe not real-life, but he’s as close as you’ll get. If you need someone to roll around on fire, get thrown out a building or violently fight- he’s your man.

Stunt performers put themselves in the most dangerous of positions, all so our belief remains suspended whilst watching action-packed films. I don’t know about you, but it totally ruins the film-watching-experience when you realise it’s a doll being thrown out of a window and not a real-life person. Arguably, Stunt Performers are the unsung heroes of the film industry. That’s why this week at NYFA, we chatted to the talented Lemuel Black who has stepped up to the challenge in Vikings (2013), Dawn of the Dragonslayer (2011) and The Professor and the Madman (2018).
