Beginning as a naïve, insecure actress, trying to use extra work and stunts as a way into the Hollywood firmament, Lisa Loving Dalton rose to become a top stunt professional, ultimately reaping the economic rewards and the ego gratification—while denying her true desire to act full time and suffering a crippling injury.
Dalton appeared in more than 200 films, television shows and commercials in New York, Hollywood and Texas, including work in Ghostbusters, Money Pit, Crocodile Dundee, Married to the Mob, FX, Legal Eagles, and Splash on the big screen and ER, HBO’s Carnivale, Dr. Quinn and Melrose Place among her many TV credits.
From a bullied, dyslexic, messy, freckle-faced, klutzy pixie, Lisa Loving Dalton grew into a statuesque and skillful stuntwoman, actor, director, teacher, author, filmmaker, John Maxwell Team leadership and life coach, and ceremonial minister. Always seeking and finding the silver lining, she has made the most of whatever life threw at her. She says, “I spill stuff, trip and drip all of the time so I made a career out of it. My advice: Embrace what is as perfect.” You may see her cruising with her Shih Tzu Tibby on her Red BMW motorcycle. If you catch her eating, she will be wearing a bib.
Her career-ending crash led to researching medical and alternative paths that form the heart of what she shares with the world today. www.lisadalton.com She is now certified in NLP, Hypnosis, and Neurological Repatterning—ways she learned to heal and a Master Acting Teacher/President of the National Michael Chekhov Association (@michaelchekhov) and SAG-AFTRA DFW Board Member.
