A stuntwoman’s biggest stunt is her new life…


When I met with Olivia a bit more than 3 years ago, we were about to start our project Trinity 007 (the seventh edition). Our first chapter was to dive with sharks, the second to do a combat flight in a veteran Huey Helicopter from the Korean War.

5 weeks after that, Olivia was involved in a devastating motorcycle accident while performing a stunt, doubling Milla Jovovich in Resident Evil: The last chapter. The accident was caused due to negligence of many people. Olivia almost lost her life. After recovering as good as she could, 5 days before her arm was amputated, we decided to commence with our original idea. Never to give up, was Olivias motto. Finally finishing the project after more than 3 years, all I can say is: Olivia – chapeau!

THOMAS KETTNER – Photographer February 2019


…“When I woke up from my coma and realized my circumstance I thought to myself – I have a choice. I can choose to be overwhelmed by what I’ve been dealt, be sad when I look in the mirror at my half paralyzed, now skew face that is scarred up and my deformed body and always look back at what I had and what I miss. With the loss of a job, loss of a limb, loss of a beauty I once knew, loss of an active lifestyle that I LOVED and the loss of independence – it’s enough to drive someone over the edge. This way I’ll no doubt be depressed and have a pretty unhappy life. Or I can choose to take things as they are, focus on what I can fix and be driven to find new passions in my new lifestyle. This way I’ll most probably smile again and be excited for what the road may bring me. Either way my twisted body and my injuries aren’t going to change, but I can choose which way I want to go – happy or sad. So I chose rather to be happy and I am determined not to let everything get me down. I’ve always been a competitive person… I definitely ain’t gonna lose now! Your mind is stronger than anything so it’s best to use it to your advantage, to create a positive life and to open up paths that you still dream of“…
