Best of friends and Co-Stuntman Diane Peterson. Diane was the 1st 'StuntWOMAN' of ECSA. At first they rejected the idea of a 'woman' stuntman. The Association thought it was too dangerous. The guys would just dress up as women when it required women stunts. This was an acceptable practice in the 1970's to name a few. However Diane's persistence helped break the mold. Diane met Alex and Harry on a Kojak set in NYC August 1974. Eventually 2 months later Alex called her for a her fist stunt. Read her book 'Hollywood Stuntwoman' for the rest of the story. Alex and Diane played in many movies together over their long History of Friendship.
She worked with Eastcoast Stuntmen's Association for two years and then moved to Los Angeles. She became the President of the Stuntwomen's Association of Motion Pictures for seven years and continues to work as an actress and stuntwoman in television and film. She has graciously participated in the movie #practicallyfamous
