(Newswire.net — September 28, 2015) — Last week a staff writer from Amy Jane’s publicity team, prematurely and without authorization, published a news release incorrectly detailing her stunt involvement with the filming of NBC’s “Blindspot.”
The release inaccurately described Amy Jane as a stunt double for the main filming of the TV series listing duties outside of being the designated firearms specialist tasked with filming a Comic Con promotional piece. The erroneous release was removed upon immediate discovery.
To set the facts straight, Amy has offered the following public statement:
“The opportunity to be involved with ‘Blindspot’ has been enormous! After telling my fan base on social media of my role as a stunt double firearms specialist for the production, I was surprised to learn of a staff writer publishing an unauthorized press release about me doing work on the show that I was not involved in, nor hired for.”
“First, Jaimie Alexander is a badass and does almost all of her own action work, and on the occasion Jaimie requires stunt assistance, her go-to stunt double is always the talented Ky Furneaux.”
“I was brought aboard as a stunt double firearms specialist for filming a Comic Con promotion on June 14, 2015, and that is it.
“I’m honored to have been a small part of an incredible TV show that is sure to be big! The staff writer who put the release out is no longer employed with nor part of my publicity team.”
All of Amy’s announcements on social media have been short and contained only mention of her direct work at hand. On July 10, 2015, with proper permission, she posted a YouTube video captioned:
“So, a lot of you have been asking what I have been up to. For starters I was hired to shoot some sequences for a 2015 Comic Con promotion for the new NBC show premiering this fall called, ‘Blindspot.’ I was hired as a firearms specialist for this awesome show promotion. I did this back in June, but just got permission to post it.”
