If you've watched an Australian film, TV show or ad during the past fifty years, chances are you've seen stuntman Grant Page - falling from the sky, jumping off cliffs, crashing motorbikes, rolling cars, hang-gliding over skyscrapers, or setting himself on fire. He's fearless, forensic and there's nothing he won't try - which makes him the go-to man for anyone wanting a spectacular explosion, a kick-arse fight or an edge-of-your-seat adrenaline rush. Whether it's falling backwards from a great height on fire, sliding a motorbike under a rolling truck, standing in for Mel Gibson - or Shelley Winters! - or mixing it with the maddest and baddest stars and stunties the film industry can offer, Grant's seen and done it all, and had a wild old time along the way. Strap yourself in for the funniest, most outrageous ride of your life as Man on Fire catapults you into the heart of the action.
