Welcome to Amputees in Action

Amputees in Action is a unique agency, working independently to provide the UK’s largest directory of trained professional amputee actors for the film and screen industries and for emergency and military services training simulations, both home and abroad.

Our personnel use their personal trauma experiences to enable graphic realism that is second to none, and our team of special effects (SFX) make-up, moulage and prosthetic artists use cutting edge technology to enhance and extend the appearance and function of limb-loss scenarios.

Caution: Contains Graphic Scenes – Our Realism is your Strength

I’ve always been interested in film and TV but deep down cynically I always thought they’d never need someone with one arm. Finding out about Amputees in Action I thought that training with the emergency services and military was amazing enough, but to get the option to go on set and even be requested for films and TV was an amazing idea. I’ve done a few media jobs now and I’m not looking back. Amputees in Action have found a gap in the market and backed up by extremely professional office staff makes it a pleasure to be part of the team. My fears of a cut throat industry have been put to rest thanks to them. The only regret I have is that I’d not found them earlier. Whereas most would give their right arm to be in films, have the experiences and meet the people I’ve met, I don’t have to.
