From a bullied, dyslexic, messy, freckle-faced, klutzy pixie, Lisa Loving Dalton grew into a statuesque and

skillful stuntwoman, actor, director, teacher, author, filmmaker, leadership/ life coach, and ceremonial minister.

Lisa spent years working with or stunt doubling for a galaxy of celebrity stars including Madonna, Meryl Streep,

Robert Redford, Katherine Hepburn, Sean Connery, Dustin Hoffman, Darryl Hannah, Michelle Pfeiffer, Robin

Williams, Robert Downey Jr., Liam Neeson, Cher and more.

 

She appeared in more than 200 films, television shows and commercials in New York, Hollywood and Texas,

including work in Ghostbusters, Money Pit, Crocodile Dundee, Married to the Mob, FX, Legal Eagles, and

Splash on the big screen and ER, HBO’s Carnivale, Dr. Quinn and Melrose Place among her many TV credits.

In 1989, Lisa suffered a severe spinal injury that altered her path. To walk and function in chronic pain, Lisa

researched medical and alternative paths that form the heart of what she shares with the world today. 

 

After her stunt-career ending injury, she resumed her passion to act and teach actors on stage and in film

around the world--in Russia, Europe, and the Americas.  As president of the National Michael Chekhov Association, 

she mentors teachers in this healthy approach to training. Always seeking and finding the silver lining, 

she has made the most of whatever life threw at her. She says, “I spill stuff, trip and drip all of the time so I made 

a career out of it. My advice: Embrace what is as perfect.”
