Meet Sera Trimble: Professional Female Stunt Driver, M3 Owner

Have you ever wondered just how a stunt driver gets his or her start? Or how you become the guy who flips a car 17 times for a deodorant ad? Sera Trimble should have the answers for you. She may have only just turned 30, but she’s built herself a successful Hollywood stunt career, and she sheds some light on what it takes.

The stunt driver for shows like ‘Hawaii Five-O’ and the Kia ‘Hamster’ ads sat down with the Wall Street Journal for a recent interview. Sera explained how her start as a valet in Seattle got her on the fast track to becoming the professional stunt driver she is today.

“One day a car commercial crew showed up.” Explained Trimble, “The director saw me parallel parking at 40 miles an hour. He said, ‘Have you ever thought of driving for a living?’ That weekend I watched the crew film their commercial, with cameras and cranes and fast-moving cars. It was so beautiful. It looked like dancing.”

M3 Stunt Driver

At the age of 24 she moved to LA and took odd jobs on any commercial she could get. While in the mean time, she took the time to perect her craft in stunt driving schools, rally driving, and ice driving.

Today she stunt drives for major network primetime shows, but will be spending most of her free time in her new BMW M3 – a birthday present to herself. WSJ tried to get their heads around what Trimble does for leisure, but Sera said that even though she has a high stress job and the lives of those on the set are in her hands, she’s just like us – when she’s not working, she’s just stuck in traffic.
