Trek Untold-Episode 147: Leslie Hoffman: Double or Nothing with Stunts
Leslie Hoffman: Double or Nothing with Stunts
Leslie Hoffman was a stunt woman on “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” and “Star Trek: Voyager,” where she also doubled for Roxann Dawson as B'Elanna Torres. She's also the only female stunt coordinator in Star Trek history, so you can imagine she's got loads of stories to tell!
Leslie explains how she got started in the stunt business, her friendship with fellow stunt performers Dennis Madalone and Tom Morga, and talks about some of her most well-known stunts, including being hung by her neck in “Rocks and Shoals,” surviving an explosion after a rough stair fall in “What You Leave Behind,” and a one-shot fight scene in VOY “Day of Honor” where she swapped with Roxann mid-scene and no one ever knew… until today.
Plus, working with Leslie Nielsen and Ricardo Montalban, her moment of fame from “Nightmare on Elm Street,” and her most dangerous stunt ever from Spielberg's flop “1941.”
NOTE: This interview was conducted before the SAG-AFTRA Strike of 2023. No performers were interviewed during the strike unless they were discussing the strike itself.
