“Alex started me in the stunt business many years ago in New York City and taught me so much,” writes stuntwoman Diane Peterson, who’s worked on such films as TITANIC, ROBOCOP 2 and AIRPLANE! “’Cover yourself, cover yourself, cover yourself,’ he always reminded me. I've had a long and exciting career as a stuntwoman and I give Alex the credit for giving me the encouragement to succeed.”
