One of BC's most veteran filmmakers will be honoured at the 2015 Leo Awards.

Danny Virtue gets a Leo after 40 years of falling off horses

Although Virtue's has an extensive resume in film and television, he began his career in a very different sort of show business.  

"I was an athlete and I started off being a circus performer" he told Our Vancouver's Gloria Macarenko in a recent sit-down interview. 

It was there Virtue learned a rare skill: stunt performing. Stunt work, especially while on horseback, would eventually become one of Virtue's most valuable talents.

Danny Virtue has filled many roles over his career: stuntman, animal wrangler, producer and director. Now, he is receiving an award for outstanding achievement at the 2015 Leo Awards.

Watch the video to see Virtue discuss his storied career with Our Vancouver's Gloria Macarenko.
