Yes, it is. That's gymnast-turned-actress Maddy Curley, 30, a native of Tallahassee, Fla., was the first varsity athlete to graduate with a degree in theatrical arts from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She co-stars in the upcoming film Starting From Scratch and performed stunt work in the Legally Blonde movies. "I see myself as more of an actress, but love doing stunts as well," says Curley, who has co-written Chalk It Up , a screenplay about gymnastics.
