American actor, stunt co-ordinator/double and movement coach, Terry Notary is known for his motion capture performances in films like The Adventures of Tintin: Secrets of the Unicorn, Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Avatar. Notary was enrolled in gymnastics to burn the excess energy of his hyperactivity, until he attained a gymnastics scholarship at UCLA, where he graduated with a major in theatre. Notary's first career was as a performer with Cirque du Soleil. His first job as a stunt movement coach was on How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Notary followed this new career path to Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes, for which he prepared by studying ape movements at the LA County Zoo, and his first motion capture film was Avatar, where he was the movement coach for the Na'vi.
