Paul, Weston

Paul Weston

Weston originally had trained to be an engineer but did not enjoy that profession, instead he started modeling.  The modeling led him to be a stand-in for Roger Moore in The Saint (TV) which became regular work from there he went on to learn about stunts.

While filming Return of the Jedi (in the desert) Weston broke his leg.  He says that he closes his eyes each time that part of the film comes up.

Weston will occasionally do the odd stunt here and there but spends most of his time as stunt coordinator on films/TV and in his off time he spends writing screenplays and traveling to conventions to meet fans.
