The heroics of behind-the-camera artists are often less spoken of as the main actors take center stage in the Hollywood entertainment industry. Another usually less appreciated faction integral to making films is the stunt doubles. But thanks to the rapidly technologically equipped world, no face remains hidden from the camera for long. And this time, it was the beauty with a brain and incredible physical strength, Devyn Dalton. The stunt performer is not only skilled in performing daring feats but also has a background in formal dance and acting. A bandwidth that apprehends and offers a complete package, the Canadian is on the rise in Hollywood.
At first, the audiences were left mesmerized by her charismatic personality, dream goal body and stunning looks. However, Devyn soon began discussing her remarkable achievements, for which she wanted to be known. Hailing from Edmonton, Alberta, in Canada, she was identified by a recruiter in the city as a potential next big thing in entertainment. With his guidance and representation, she embarked on a journey to explore the world of entertainment. She feels incredibly lucky to have such a fantastic team by her side, including mentors and all those who have supported and guided her on her journey to success.
Devyn, with no prior background or connection to the Hollywood industry, initially faced the daunting task of adapting to the fast-paced nature of the industry as an outsider. She patiently waited for the right opportunity to come her way despite not having the backing of references or the support of big names in the industry. ‘It’s not easy, not easy at all. As much as I want to encourage my fellow Canadians to join Hollywood, I don’t want them to come here thinking that the grass is greener. It’s a whole different world here, and you just have to survive until your time comes, shared Devyn.
The rising star is often confronted with the question of whether she desires to be the lead actress in a mega-budget film. Throughout, she has consistently responded to this somewhat controversial question with a level of maturity. ‘I am an actor, so yes, if the right project comes up, why not? However, I don’t want to play the main lead just for the sake of it; I have never done it; I don’t wish to; that’s not me,’ said Devyn.
Among her notable projects are War for the Planet of the Apes, Percy Jackson, The Predator, Skyscraper, X-Men: Dark Phoenix, Once Upon a Time, Legion and The BFG, for which she has rendered her service as a stunt performer. Her role in The Legends of Tomorrow was also recognized as performed well by the critics.
Devyn, in addition to her remarkable career as a stunt double and actor, has also given her voice to many famous characters in films and series. The character of Ocellus in My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, Seasons 8 and 9, is brought to life by her voice. She is among the leading voice-over artists for English-dubbed films and TV series.
Devyn looks forward to being part of exciting projects in 2024. She is actively searching for roles that will push her boundaries as an artist and allow her to develop new artistic skills. ‘I still have a long way to go; I am still at the very beginning if you ask me, despite all the praise that you have given me. I am looking forward to a busy 2024, and hopefully, audiences will see me more on the screens,’ concluded the artist.
