The female star of a TV show about firefighting is revealing her personal inspiration- her sister, who just so happens to be a LA firefighter.
Playing the role of Maya Bishop on Station 19, TV and Instagram star Danielle Savre revealed that her sister, Stephanie, was the real-life counterpart that played a major part in ensuring her role was authentic.
“It started with technical things, Savre told the Daily Mail. “What do I need to be on top of, what would I have on me. Then finally, when I got that down and we went to the training, I was like..’How would you do this in this situation?’”
Eventually, Stephanie became a sounding board for the show, helping keep a drama as realistic as possible.
Stephanie serves as Danielle’s stunt double for many of the scenes.
“I drove the engine a few times for her…and did some fire scenes,” Stephanie said.
The two sisters are excited to be an inspiration for future female firefighters.
