Farmington Hills girl is youngest stunt actor in state

Farmington Hills 11-year-old is youngest stunt actor in Michigan.


In most ways, Frankie Potochick is a typical 11-year-old.

She likes having fun with classmates at East Middle School in Farmington Hills, and she occasionally works with her dad.

Her dad, Patrick Potochick, however, is a principal partner in Reel Action FX, which provides special effects services for film makers in Michigan.

Frankie performs movie stunts.

“She’s the youngest stunt actor in Michigan,” said Patrick Potochick. “We’re so proud of her.”

Frankie, short for Francesca, has been trained, as a stunt actor, to fight, perform high falls, tumble, wire work and more.
