WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Imagine if your job required you to jump from an airplane?

That's the case for stunt woman and actress Sarah Farooqui.

In her newest role, the dare-devil beauty falls from the sky in Iron Man 3.

A clip released by Marvel on Facebook shows Farooqui being sucked out of a plane and freefalling toward the ground.

In the scene, she's the first person Iron Man snatches from the sky.

Ashlea Kosikowski caught up with her on the red carpet at the Hollywood premiere of the film last week.

She did her own stunt work, diving out of the plane, without a green screen.

Some parts of the scene do involve CGI; however, a lot of it was filmed in the air over Oak Island.

"I loved it there," said Farooqui. "I had so much fun. Of course, you're doing a movie there so it was extremely exciting being part of it."

In this video posted on YouTube, you can see Farooqui parachuting onto the beach in Oak Island nearly 4 minutes into the clip. Tourists captured this on tape while the movie filmed there in August.

Farooqui didn't want to say too much about the scene as to not spoil it for fans; however, she thinks it will have a lot of people talking.

"I understand you get thrown from a plane?" Ashlea asked.

"Yes! Blown from a plane at great speeds," Farooqui responded. "I'm hoping it's one of the biggest scenes there is."

Farooqui said the film has more than great action.

"This movie has a lot of depth to it," she said. "This man is stripped bare. He's taken down to his soul. He's pushing for humility and I love that."

The film opens nationwide May 3, with some screenings starting as early as tomorrow night.
