Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and his stunt double Tanoai Reed have worked together for nearly two decades, and Johnson recently expressed his public appreciation for his partner by purchasing him a brand-new custom pick-up truck for Reed and his family.
“Over the course of my career, my stunt double (and cousin) Tanoai Reed @samoanstuntman has broken multiple bones, severed tendons, torn ligaments & just been an overall dominating bad ass achieving several “Stuntman of the Year” honors,” Johnson wrote in an Instagram post. “All done with one goal in mind – deliver the best movie possible to the world…Not only does Tanoai represent our family and my career with relentless commitment and passion. He also represents an entire Hollywood stunt community that is truly the backbone of our business.”
