KY FURNEAUX

Hollywood Stunt Artist

ABOUT KY

Ky’s career spans an extraordinary set of achievements.  The more public ones read like an actual Hollywood script, from splitting her time between stunt work on films such as The Avengers, Thor, and X-Men 3, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Garner and Jaimie Alexander, and winning a stunt-industry-equivalent Oscar for Best Female Stunt Performer in the world; to her adventures as a real-life Survival Expert (often referred to as the ‘female Bear Grylls’).

 

But it’s her private challenges that have her in our books as a truly Extraordinary Woman.  At the age of 19 a car accident left her with limited mobility and doctors feared she would never be able to do sports or live the active lifestyle she loved.  It was only with admirable levels of determination, persistence and tenacity that she fought forward and within a few shorts years she was climbing, rappelling, scaling high ropes, sailing, and kayaking.

 

Ky’s is an amazing embodiment of attributes our Girl Shaped Flames all share: courageous, resilient, adventurous, ambitious and with a fantastic down-to-earth sense of humour to boot.
