Summer blockbuster Mad Max: Fury Road has taken many viewers by storm; the copious amounts of edge-of-your-seat action, explosions, and probably the coolest post-apocalyptic vehicles...but the plot line falls short when it comes to romance. Who needs romance in such an exciting, post-humanity survival movie? Not me, that's for sure.
If you've seen Mad Max: Fury Road you'll know that the movie is packed to the brim with action and Max's opposite, Furiosa, definitely doesn't lack in that aspect. She's just as badass as Max!
It seems clear that our adoration for Furiosa was shared by 37 year-old Dane Grant, who came to the set to work as Tom Hardy's double. “I remember that first day meeting her in the stunt rehearsal gym. She stood out for all the right reasons," he said of Dayna, now his wife.
"Dayna and I had a lot in common with those two characters, meeting for the first time, learning to trust each other under stressful conditions, pretty much just get on with what you're supposed to while on a mission through the desert with a bunch of weirdly dressed post-apocalyptic characters everywhere you look."
Dayna has also doubled in other movies such as Xena: The Warrior Princess and Snow White and the Huntsman. It was later announced that a different man would play Hardy’s double, but Dane would go on to play a few War Boys.
Since the movie’s filming, the two have gotten married and have a 14 month-old son.
