Ingrid Kleinig is a LA based Stunt Coordinator & performer who fell into the world of stunts while swinging 140ft above the arena in the Opening Ceremony of the 2000 Olympic Games. Having toured the globe with renowned physical theatre company Legs on the Wall as well as the Sydney Theatre Company - performing alongside the likes of Cate Blanchett & Joseph Fiennes, she had formed a wealth of physical, technical & artistic vocabulary across multiple fields including directing & rigging that lent itself precisely to the stunt industry.

In recent filmic endeavours Ingrid was the stunt double for Margot Robbie on Suicide Squad & The Legend of Tarzan, Brie Larson on Captain Marvel & Kong: Skull Island & Evangeline Lilly on Ant Man & The Wasp & The Hobbit Trilogy. She was one of only two female stunt drivers on Mad Max: Fury Road, can drive a big rig truck & hold her breath underwater for five & a half minutes. She is also the first female to be officially graded as an Assistant Stunt Coordinator in Australia where, to date, no female has ever held the position of Stunt Coordinator. She continues to pursue her passion for movement within the realm of film by creating action that serves the story.
