Freediving guru and PADI IDC Staff Instructor Liz Parkinson is rapidly becoming the go-to person for Hollywood and TV companies when it comes to teaching talent to scuba dive or freedive, or when they need a stunt performer who can excel whether they are on a set of scuba gear or diving breath-hold.
She has been involved in several major movies, including Avatar: The Way of Water, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and F9: The Fast Saga, and the TV series Thai Cave Rescue, and she is on the Main Stage at the GO Diving Show in March.
She is joining a diverse selection of global talent on the Main Stage this year, alongside the likes of Ross Kemp, Patrick Widmann, Chris Jewell, Andy Torbet, Cristina Zenato, Alex Mustard and Natalie Hewit.
