Horse trainer is stunt double in Spielberg flick

Posted on | 0 Responses

A Welsh horse trainer and equine insurance customer has become a Hollywood star after appearing alongside A-listers in Steven Spielberg's new film War Horse.

Dylan Jones, originally from Llanberis, was a stunt double in the film, spending seven weeks working on location at the Duke of Wellington's estate.

Mr Jones is no stranger to the silver screen, however, having already appeared on TV drama Merlin.

Commenting on his success in the field of film, Mr Jones said: "There was nobody professional training horses for the TV and film industry in Wales … so I saw a niche in the market and went on from there."

He said that Spielberg was a workhorse himself and spent all day every day on set.

"It was an eye opener for us because they were hard, long days," he added.

War horse premiered in London earlier this month and was attended by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – the first time Royalty had attended a Spielberg premiere.
