The Stunt Pod

Greg Powell Part 1: Have Cigar, will travel

June 24, 2020

GREG POWELL is a big name in the industry. One of those names that has pedigree and family connections with that industry that go back to the 1940s.

His father FRED ‘NOSHER’ POWELL and his uncle ‘DINNY POWELL’ have both worked on numerous film and television productions over the years. Greg was destined to join the family business and now, finally after years of asking we get an opportunity to get him on THE STUNT POD.

We talk about his early career and what living with a stuntman was like. Early memories and we explore some of Gregs back catalogue to find out more about him as the performer and as the stunt coordinator. Work on  classic action movies like SUPERMAN, THE WILD GEESE, THE SPY WHO LOVED ME and NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN - also his recent ventures as coordinator on all the HARRY POTTER films, AVENGERS AGE OF ULTRON, THE FOREIGNER, THE HITMAN’S BODYGUARD and its sequel the highly anticipated THE HITMAN’S WIFE’S BODYGUARD

We also get chance to have a laugh - its not all hard work on set and Greg has one or two stories to explain set life to us.

So pull up a comfy chair, sit back and enjoy as we invite Greg Powell onto The Stunt Pod.
