Starring Monica Staggs, as 'The Death Doll' 

The Hollywood stuntwoman and North Little Rock native defies death and considers life.

Page 8 of 8

An hour and less than half a beer into our conversation at Vino's, Staggs's head and eyes grow heavy. She rests her forehead on her palm. After trailing off mid-sentence, for the fourth time, she grows annoyed. "Maybe I am brain damaged," she said, with only a twinge of sarcasm. But more than anything, she just seems extremely, extremely tired, so we decide to wrap things up. Staggs promises she can make the 20-minute drive home, if she grabs a Rock Star from the convenience store first. I can't help but root for North Little Rock's mercurial superwoman. In Hollywood and beyond, her career isn't over. These days, it's just a bit more figuratively than literally up in the air.
