Skylee Murray is an Indigenous person of mixed decent, Ojibway of Pine Creek Manitoba on her mother’s side and German/French on her father’s side. She was born in Toronto, Ontario August 5th, 1985. In 2014 at age 29 she made her way out to Vancouver British Columbia where she used her skills as an artist to begin working in the film industry on sets. Once she discovered the stunts aspect of film in 2018 she immediately began transitioning into that career by training skills specific for action performance. Her focus mainly on fight choreography, falls and water stunts. Having grown up moving very often between foster homes she dabbled in all sorts of athletic programs for short periods, horse riding, figure skating, gymnastics, dance, swimming, martial arts, biking, climbing and so forth. In December 2020 Skylee landed her first stunt performing role on a tv show called Midnight Mass. Breaking into the industry has been a process involving training consistently with others in the film industry, networking and getting her presence out there. Once Skylee became an apprentice member of the UBCP/ACTRA union she applied to the Diversity & Inclusion Mentorship Program where she was partnered with her mentor Braden Haggerty who specializes in water stunts and underwater camera work. In February 2021 Skylee participated in a workshop called Indigenous Action Artist Mentorship Program hosted by Stunt Coordinator Professionals Lauro Chartrand-DelValle, Bruce Crawford and others from Stunts Canada. Through this program Skylee was able to connect with several of the top professionals in stunts and demonstrate her acquired skill set thus far, in turn this has led to more roles as a Stunt Performer/Action Artist.
