Can you get them, please?


We'll do this take with Zoe now.

Yeah, I do.

Stand by, please, guys.

One minute, we'll be shooting.

Cameras are all set.

All right, shooting, please.

- Good luck, everybody.

- Roll cameras.

And lighting.

Three, two, one, go!

- Go!

- Out!

All right, check the gate.

Zoe, thank you.

People keep saying to me...

"What would you do

if you didn't do stunts?"

And I seriously wouldn't have a clue.

God, that feels so good.

I don't think I could be a waitress again.

I was pretty crap at being a waitress.

Need the make-up.

Can we bring the air bag in now?

I've been doing stunts

for almost fifty years.

Whoa, guys. Be careful.

- We'll work it out.

- We'll work it out.

It's all I really know,

outside of being a Mom and Grandma.

Retirement's not for me.

And... rolling!

Action, Jeannie!


I like to fight.

I came from that old school

where you did it all yourself.

I love what I do.

Three, two, one.

How do you answer people who say,

"You must be crazy to do this"?

Oh, I definitely think

that is a piece of the ingredient.

- Being a little crazy helps?

- Being a little crazy definitely helps.

It's a great feeling.

Only-- oh, maybe once or twice

in other areas...

have I felt quite as fulfilled.

The collaboration was

so fundamental to "Wonder Woman".

Looking back, you know--we kicked ass.

There was a long time between

"Wonder Woman"...

and "The Bionic Woman" to "Xena".

You know, Xena is half Zoe.

I hate to tell you people that, but...

I remember the first time

I ever saw Lucy...

was coming down a hill

called College Hill...

near where Mum and Dad live.

And there was

this massive billboard...

with this big, solid woman...

with this beautiful big smile

and beautiful big blue eyes...

wielding a sword

and sitting on this horse.

And I'm thinking,

"Damn. She's cool, man".

Excuse me, ma'am.

Oh, my God, when I first started

I was shitting myself...

because I felt like I had only

just got out of school...

and this was the first job I got into.

I didn't plan to be a stuntwoman.

In fact, I didn't know you could be

a stuntwoman in New Zealand...

until I basically stumbled upon it.

I've never had a job or done anything...

in which I've held

that much responsibility.

Those are weird.

What do you do?

Shove them in your bra?

- Yeah. Underneath your teddy.

- Your tit.

They're called "secrets".

It's got a nipple on it!

Bleek, bleek, bleek, bleek.

So, I just stick it in here.


Ew, but feel--they feel like tits.

- I know.

- Is that the whole point?


OK, let's go in the back.

That's fine, but they're going

to cutaway to the section.

Quiet, please.

We'll just block through it.

Here we go.

- Set.

- And action!

- And cutting.

- First guy goes that way?

Swing it out and across.

Yep, and block out.

Rehearsing, please.

Seize her!

Sorry, wrong way.

Pretty good.

And resetting.

Blah, blah, blah, blah.

That's my acting double.

Now you're coming with me.


Seize her!

That's so much better.

I wouldn't mind acting.

I don't think

I'd like to be famous, as such.

I think that fame is

what would finally do my head in...

if I was an actor.

See ya.

I like being able to walk out of work,

take my wig off...

and be Zoe again and not have

to take Xena with me everywhere.

- See you, Janie.

- Bye.

I really enjoy being physical...

and I like being able to try

and perfect that kind of stuff.

Number ones, please.

The only problem is,

Xena dies this season.


Do it again on a roll.

When Xena dies, I'll be unemployed.

It's kind of a scary thought.

Hi, Buddy Joe.

This is Jeannie Epper calling.

I could use some work

if you have anything on your show.

This is Jeannie Epper calling.

I thought maybe you might have

something on your new TV series.

You've reached "Charlie's Angels ll".

We're not in the office right now

to take your call.

- Production.

- Hi. Is Terry Leonard in?

He is not in right now.

Can I take a message?

There's not a whole lot.

Talk to me this weekend.

OK. I sure will, Scottie. Thanks a lot.

- OK, honey, I love you.

- I love you, too, sweetheart. OK.

- Talk to you soon.

- Bye.

Quiet, please.

People constantly ask me...

"God, aren't you getting

about ready to retire?"

We are rolling!

You know,

nobody else lives in my body.

They don't know how I really feel.

I feel great.

And as long as I'm feeling good,

why shouldn't I be out there working?

Yeah, that's good.

That's real good. That's good, because...

Is this wood up or down?

- We've never met? Oh, really?

- You're such a legend.

Well, I've always wanted to meet

the guy in the red suit.

I love what I do. My kids are all in it.

My Dad was in it.

My grandkids are going to be in it.

To this day, when I go watch a movie,

I watch the credits.

It's kind of a thrill to see

some of your family members...

or my name, or my kids'--

because we work hard.

Jeannie came from

a background of horses.

Her father

was a famous jumping horse rider.

A lot of the reasons people thought

I could do almost anything...

is that I was Johnny Epper's daughter...

and Johnny Epper's daughter

came with a big reputation.

They're famous.

The Epper family are, you know,

the Flying Wallendas of film.

They have taken stunt work

to the next level.

They're real pioneers.

In the bar fight in "1941"...
