Mike Snow (a.k.a Smo), is a Melbourne based Stunt Actor working professionally in film, TV and live productions since 2010.
Since becoming a graded stunt performer at 18, Smo has worked on a wide variety of Australian and international productions
including Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, The Dressmaker, Upper Middle Bogan, King Kong: Live On Stage and many others.
Growing up as a gymnast and break dancer, Smo also took up Parkour in 2007. Through these disciplines, Smo has developed exceptional body control capabilities and is known for his strength, flexibility, explosive power and unique way of moving. These qualities are showcased in Australian Ninja Warrior: Season 1, in which he was a competitor.
Included in his diverse skill set is large scale puppetry/creature work, as seen in the 2013/2014 show King Kong: Live On Stage, in which Smo was one of ten onstage puppeteers, controlling the 6M tall, 1 tonne animatronic/marionette puppet. King Kong ran a season of 293 shows, was recipient of numerous Helpman and Greenroom awards and pushed the boundaries of musical theatre. Smo’s work as a puppeteer also includes the opening ceremony of the World Cricket Cup 2014 and White Night Melbourne 2017.
With a sky diving C License and 250+ jumps, Dive Master (SCUBA) certification and a passion for always learning and improving, Smo is ready for anything the industry has to throw at him.
