Feed The Beast Talk featuring Ky Furneaux

Presented by FUEL

Ky Furneaux takes the FUEL stage for an intimate interview about surviving the Hollywood stunt world and the wild.

Ky Furneaux’s career reads like an actual Hollywood script: from stunt work on films such as The Avengers, Thor, and X-Men 3, and winning a stunt-industry-equivalent Oscar for Best Female Stunt Performer in the world; to her adventures as a real-life Survival Expert (AKA the ‘female Bear Grylls’).

But it was almost never meant to be. At 19, a car accident left her with limited mobility and doctors feared she would never be able to live the active lifestyle she loved. It was only with enormous levels of determination, persistence and tenacity that she fought forward and beyond.
