The Gravity-Defying Talents of ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’s Pip Andersen


As we reported yesterday, Disney announced that two new actors had been added to the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII. One of them, Pip Andersen, is an expert in the art of parkour: A daredevil sport that involves running, jumping and climbing around the obstacles of an urban environment. It’s a tough sport, and you have to be in fantastic shape and have a keen sense of balance to do it safely. Even then, injuries are common.

Andersen is one of the best, and has worked with some really big names, including Sony, Red Bull, Adidas, and Sega. He has appeared in numerous commercials, and TV shows, and has also done some stunt work. Here are some of Pip’s amazing videos. His stunts could put a Jedi to shame!
