Wasn’t consulted about Uma Thurman driving a car on camera that day: Kill Bill stunt coordinator on deadly accident
In an article for the New York Times, Thurman had alleged that director Quentin Tarantino forced her to drive an unsafe car as part of a stunt on the set of Kill Bill, which crashed and injured her.
Keith Adams, who served as the stunt coordinator on the sets of Kill Bill, has said that he would have been able to prevent actor Uma Thurman’s crash had he been notified about the scene. Adams told The Hollywood Reporter that he and his team were not on set as no stunts were scheduled for the day the violent car crash happened.
“No stunts of any kind were scheduled for the day of Ms Thurman’s accident. All of the stunt department was put on hold and no one from the stunt department was called to set. At no point was I notified or consulted about Thurman driving a car on camera that day,” Adams said.
“Had I been involved, I would have insisted not only on putting a professional driver behind the wheel but also insuring that the car itself was road-worthy and safe,” he added.
