Instead, she is Daphne Avalon, a professional stunt woman who - as we'll he hear in our special audio interview - was lucky to have friends who didn't spill the secret. And who, from an early age, demonstrated she had stunt work in her DNA.

As you'll hear, the likeness to the "Amazing Amazon" is something she's heard before.
