Recently our own Dan Berry had a chance to chat with both Carrie Bernans and Jesse La Flair both of whom are professional taggers on FOX’s new show ULTIMATE TAG.

Carrie, Jessie, and Dan talk about the show and how they came to be involved in the show, their careers in Hollywood (Carrie was one of the Dora Milaje in Black Panther and End Game, Jesse appeared as Nightcrawler’s stunt double in 2 different X-Men movies), and some of their future plans. 

It’s a great chat with both of them, and thanks need to go out to both Carrie and Jesse, as well as Paul with PAL Public Relations for setting this up.

On Wednesday May 20th, 2020 FOX debut its new show ULTIMATE TAG, a high-octane physical competition based around the childhood game of Tag. But this is anything but child’s play!

Competitors who must vault, dodge, tumble and dive their way through several different three-dimensional courses. All the while, the contestants will be chased by resident professional Taggers. The show is
debuting at a time where there is not much in the way of sport on TV and
this competitive competition fills a void at a much needed time.

Two of those Professional Taggers, who are most prominent: BANSHEE, aka
Award-winning Actress/Stunt-woman Carrie Bernans, and LA FLAIR aka
Parkour, Free Running Legend and Actor Jesse La Flair.
