"REALLY, REALLY, RIDICULOUSLY GOOD LOOKING PEOPLE"
Name: Joao Veiga de Aguiar
Origin: I was born in Viseu and grew up in Portimao, Portugal. I’ve been working since 2010 for the company, Madstunts. I recently lived and worked in Australia for a year, where I studied and graduated at the Gold Coast Stunt Academy and then worked as an Instructor. As a stuntman my work life ends up very eclectic, from working in film as a warrior to my last work for Queensland Opera Company, on their main stage performance of Carmen.
My profession and the people who surround me and support me in making the dreams I have reality. David Chan Cordeiro and Colin Handley are two friends and teachers who share my passion and I’m thankful for them every single day.
If I weren't me, I'd be:
Jason Statham. No further explanation needed there.
Best trait about yourself: physically and mentally:
Physically I know I am strong and mentally I am even stronger.
First time in the morning:
I will check the time to see if I can sleep in a little bit more.
In my opinion there is no time for rituals when there is food to be eaten. I eat a LOT.
Something you'd never do or give up for money:
My family and my friends.
Have you experienced unrequited love, and if so what did you do about it:
I don’t really believe in unrequited love, if you want something you make it happen. There is no such thing as a no win situation.
Adriana Lima and Emily Ratajkowski, both at the same time would be good too but I’d settle for individually.
Under Armor and Nike
Otis and Pharrell anything with a smooth sound and good lyrics.
