James Sherwin “Bud” Ekins (May 11, 1930–October 6, 2007) was an American professional stuntman in the US film industry. He is considered to be one of the film industry’s most accomplished stuntmen.
Ekins acted as stunt double for Steve McQueen while filming The Great Escape, and was the rider who performed what is considered to be one of the most famous motorcycle stunts ever performed in a film.
He was recognised for his stunt work by being inducted into the Stuntmen’s Hall of Fame.
Ekins was also an accomplished off-road motorcycle racer in motocross and enduro events, and helped pioneer the sport of desert racing.
He was inducted into the Off-road Motorsports Hall of Fame in 1980, and the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 1999.
Steve McQueen’s dramatic fence-jump in the 1963 classic The Great Escape has been named the greatest film motorcycle scene ever in a new survey by motorcycle insurer Lexham Insurance.
The high-speed leap was made on a Triumph TR6 Trophy by stunt double Bud Ekins, after McQueen crashed attempting the stunt himself.
