HTP Episode 158 – Sandra Gimpel

Sandra Gimpel is known to Star Trek fans as the Salt Vampire from M-113, but not a lot of fans know about her success as a stunt double. In this episode, she talks about how she got her gigs on Lost in Space as well as Star Trek (many people don’t know she was also a Talosian!). Sandra has some great insight into how people can balance more than one still, and how one person with multiple talents can be valuable on a movie set– and in other areas of life.

Be sure to check out her soon-to-be-released book Stunt Lady: Sandra Gimpel Falling for the Stars and watch for her upcoming website, She also released a range of workout DVDs.

Sandra will be appearing in person at Trek Long Island May 20 & 21, 2023!
