Stunt Coordinator - Eddie Perez

Eddie Perez born in New York, a city where you can stay indoors all day and watch the world pass you by, or get up and participate with all it has to offer. Eddie Perez chose the latter. An active kid, who spent his summers with family in Puerto Rico, he achieved the honor of Eagle Scout at the age of thirteen. He was also awarded the American Legion Good Citizenship Award for helping save the Botanical Gardens in Queens New York by putting together a volunteer group to plant seedlings during the cities cut backs. He continued his athleticism in high school where he played most sports and boxed in the golden gloves. While attending Long Island University in New York (where Eddie graduated with a degree in education, a minor in biology and athletic training accredited hours), he found work as a doorman at New York City hot spots such as Heartbreaks, The Fun House and The Underground, to name a few. Working these nightclubs, he met many celebrities. He was known for being level-headed, smart and in great physical shape. He was asked to leave New York by Mickey Rourke after finishing college and head to Los Angeles where he trained Mickey and Anthony Michael Hall. While training Hall, he met the band Duran Duran, who were very much in their prime at the time. Eddie began working for the band as both their personal trainer and bodyguard. He worked his way up to Head of Security and then was hired as the Head of Security for Pink Floyd as well. Between both acts, he was able to go on seven plus world tours. His travels allowed him to train in Israel, South Africa, and the United States in VIP protection programs. Once he finished the touring, and doing bodyguard work for a variety of stars such as Sylvester Stallone and Sandra Bullock, he decided he wanted to pursue his true passion. During his time off from work, he studied acting with Peter Flood, stunts with Paul Stader as well as any other classes available to help better his craft. As with everything else he attempted, his reputation preceded him and he began to find work as a stunt coordinator and stuntman. He has 2nd Unit Directed and stunt coordinated films, television series, commercials and videos. His goal is to help put the directors vision to film in the most practical and safe manner with out compromising creativity.
