USU Alumna, Former Stuntwoman Honored by Stunt Industry
The Herald Journal Saturday, Sep. 08, 2018
Utah State University alumna and former stuntwoman Marneen Fields remembers with fondness her days of scaling a barbed-wire fence in spiked heels and jumping over a banister without spilling a glass of wine. ... The entertainment industry has not forgotten the contributions Fields made as a stunt double. That was evident last month when she received the Legendary Stunt Award from the International Action On Film Festival in Las Vegas, Nevada. Fields came to USU in the 1970s from Simi Valley, California, on a full gymnastics scholarship. She studied drama, music and dance, but did not graduate with a degree. Fields, now a pop rock adult contemporary artist in Los Angeles, spoke by phone with The Herald Journal about her career and her time at USU.
