Lucinda has been a stunt performer for the past seventeen years, performing in films such as Tomb Raider, Batman, Die Another Day and Sex and the City, doubling for the likes of Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow and Cate Blanchett.

One of her favourite jobs was doubling for Cate Blanchett in Robin Hood down in Pembrokeshire filming an epic battle sequence on the beach. She had her then two young children with her at the time - and there she was on horseback, in full armour brandishing a sword, a woman amongst the men in a Ridley Scott battle scene. It was a very empowering moment of her life, not only as a woman, but as a new mother.

Lucinda currently lives in Buckinghamshire with her husband and three beautiful boys, Harry, Charlie and Archie. She has hung up her stunt pads for now and currently teaches yoga for a living. Through yoga, she has embarked on an incredible journey of self enquiry and developed some amazing tools which have enriched her life further. She takes great pleasure now in sharing her insights and helping other people develop their practice.

OSKIA: What inspired you to become a stunt woman?
Lucinda: I initially liked the idea of being a stunt woman as it didn't conform to my traditional up bringing. I was a rebel!

OSKIA: What did you want to become when you were 5 years old?
Lucinda: I wanted to be the first woman to win the Grand National.

OSKIA: A woman you admire?
Lucinda: Cate Blanchett, she is the epitome of feminine strength and grace.

OSKIA: What is the best piece of advice you were given?
Lucinda: Don't make decisions out of fear and be brave, life is too short not to be.
