* NathanFillion did a lot of his own stunts in {{Firefly}} until he found out that his stunt double was not getting paid for most episodes because of it.

* Creator/BabyPeggy, and that's considering she was a toddler when she had to pull off those stunts. Taken to the extreme when [[http://www.silentsaregolden.com/articles/bpinterview.html she had to escape a burning set]] in ''The Darling of New York''.

* ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner:'' In [[http://www.homestarrunner.com/sbemail80.html "stunt double"]], Strong Bad insists that he does all his own stunts. He's [[BlatantLies lying]], of course: when he shows his scenes from the film ''Dangeresque II: This Time It's Not Dangeresque 1'' as evidence, he has the least convincing stunt double ever: [[spoiler:His younger brother Strong Sad (who looks nothing like Strong Bad) wearing a paper bag with Strong Bad's face crudely drawn on it.]]

* Creator/HayleyAtwell frequently did her own stunts in fight scenes for ''Series/AgentCarter'', [[http://ididntwearmybowtie.tumblr.com/post/118644455707/hayley-atwell-hitting-people-and-breaking-things though this tended to not end well for the stuntmen]].

* Due to a lot of the leads having prior martial arts/ gymnastics training all but the most dangerous of stunts are preformed by the main actors from the Franchise/{{Arrowverse}} most notably Stephen Amell (who really does use the Salmon Ladder in real life) and Caity Lotz (who incorporates her experience as a dancer into the Canary's fight style).

* The film ''Film/StickIt'', about gymnastics in the last days of the Perfect 10 scoring system. Most of the supporting characters/extras ranks were filled with NCAA and elite amateur gymnasts -- including Olympians Mohini Bhardwaj, Allana Slater, and eventual 2008 Olympic AA champion Nastia Liukin -- all of whom did their own stunts. Among the leading roles, Maddy Curley (Mina Hoyt), a former Division I NCAA gymnast, did her own stunts, as did Tarah Paige (Tricia Skilken), who actually ''is'' a Hollywood stuntwoman and moreover competed in the elite ranks of USA Gymnastics before heading to Hollywood[[note]]as Tarah Chellevold, should you be interested in youtubing her[[/note]]. In fact, Tricia's lovely illusion twist on beam featured in Tarah's national championships balance beam routine at one point.

* Creator/ViggoMortensen: Broke his toe kicking a helmet (which [[ThrowItIn stayed in the final cut]]), lost a tooth, nearly drowned and did many of his own stunts while filming ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings''. He was also described by legendary swordmaster Bob Anderson as "the best swordsman I've ever trained" (which is saying something in a 50-year career), and kept his sword with him at all times for the duration of the filming. Oh, and slept in the stables in order to bond with his horses, and bought said horses after the production finished. Years later, he stabbed himself in the leg while shooting ''Literature/{{Alatriste}}'' and kept filming.

* Creator/DonaldSutherland insisted on performing his own stunts in the 1978 remake of ''Film/InvasionOfTheBodySnatchers''. This made director Philip Kaufman nervous because the catwalk at the pod factory was nearly 50 ft up in the air and there were very real explosions. In fact, Sutherland barely missed one of them; an extra, however, missed his cue and was injured by it.
