Taraja Ramsess brought his passion for martial arts into a variety of stunt work for numerous high-profile projects. His first credit in the field came in 2015 when he served as a stunt double for Papa Midnite in an episode of “Constantine.” From there, he’d make a habit of appearing in comic book adaptations, doing stunts for “Black Lightning,” “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law,” and “Black Adam.” He even has some on-camera appearances, as he appears as a Wakandan soldier in both “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.”
He also has experience in the art department for various productions. He’s worked as an on-set dresser, who is responsible for arranging objects on a set before the cameras roll, on many film and TV sets, including “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” “Furious 7,” and “What Men Want.” Throughout his resume, it becomes abundantly clear that Ramsess was a singular talent who excelled in many different disciplines. He was a key behind-the-scenes figure who will be missed by all those who worked with him.
