Stunt Driver Sera Trimble on How She Got Her Start (and Her Porsche 911)

In the latest “How’d You Get That Car?” column, Trimble talks with Hannah Elliott about getting into car collecting—and showbiz.

Sera Trimble drove backward down a hill in Licorice Pizza and flipped into a tight spot in Bullet Train. She’s screeched tires in Transformers and American Pie and in TV shows such as Euphoria, Star Trek: Picard, and Modern Family. Sienna Miller used Trimble as her stunt double in American Woman; Christina Applegate did, too, in Dead to Me.

Remember those Subaru ads with the golden retrievers “driving”? That was Trimble, wedged under the steering column working the pedals. She’s also done commercials for Audi, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz.
