Julius Leflore moved to Los Angeles from his childhood home in the rural South. He grew up in California and was exposed to the Hollywood Scene at a young age. Already being an accomplished gymnast, Julius earned an opportunity to work as a Stuntman. Having caught the eye of Paul Stader, who at the time was the top Stunt Coordinator in the business. Early in his stunt career, he realized the importance of one day becoming a Stunt Coordinator himself. Julius has worked with producers Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Dino Delaurentiis just to name a few. He’s worked with directors F. Gary Grey, Christopher Nolan, Jane Campion, Ron Howard, Vondie Curtis Hall, Bill Duke,and many more. Also having become a 2nd Unit Director himself. Julius’s career as a Stuntman, Stunt Coordinator and 2nd Unit Director has spanned more than 30 years and some 300 films, Television Shows, Commercials and numerous Music Videos.
RETURN OF THE JEDI:
Julius worked on “RETURN OF THE JEDI” He was hired since as both an actor and stuntman he could perform many of the stunts needed for “RETURN OF THE JEDI”! This allowed him to not only be the stunt double for BILLY DEE WILLIAMS (Lando) but also to be numerous characters from the film that required stunts, and that includes:
SKIFF MASTER & YOTTS OREN & BIKER SCOUT & STORMTROOPER
Julius was the ONLY stuntman willing to dive HEAD FIRST into the Sarlac Pit making him be in great demand on set. He’s also the Biker Scout that flips “head of heals” off the bikes in several scenes on Endor. And as silly as it may sound, when EWOKS attack, it was required by union rules that stuntmen be the ones attacked so every time you see a Stormtrooper or Biker Scout getting beaten its usually Julius (or Dicky Beer and one other guy)
