Tanoai Reed, The Rock’s devoted stuntman and cousin, was taken aback when he received a brand-new, fully-customized pickup vehicle as a gift from The Rock, who lived up to his reputation as the kindest person in the world.
The two individuals taped what seemed to be a typical behind-the-scenes video; but, Johnson had another objective in mind.
Reed has worked as The Rock’s stuntman ever since The Rock’s first lead role in The Scorpion King, which was 16 years ago. His cousin’s career has been everything but easy thus far.
Tanoai Reed, who is also the actor’s stunt double, is the actor’s cousin. “Over the course of my career, my stunt double (and cousin) Tanoai Reed has broken multiple bones, severed tendons, torn ligaments, and just been an overall dominating badass,” the actor wrote on Instagram. “He has also achieved several ‘Stuntman of the Year’ honors.”
Reed was overcome with emotion when he spotted the vehicle that had a beautiful red ribbon on top of it. When he posted the present on social media, he stated that he was #BlessedBeyondBelief and included the hashtag.
“Not only does Tanoai represent our family and my work with unwavering dedication and fervor,” Johsnon went on to say.
“He also represents me.” Additionally, he is the representative of the whole Hollywood stunt community, which serves as the true foundation of our company. I love you, brother, and I’m grateful for all of the blood, sweat, tears, and years you’ve put in.”
