Priyanka Chopra Jonas is one of the most popular actors, not just in the Bollywood industry but also in the Hollywood industry as well. Recently, she was seen on screen in the series Citadel wherein her action-packed stunts were appreciated by people across the globe.

Wondering what is the secret behind the successful delivery of such stunts on screen? Citadel's stunt coordinator James Young has the answer.

While giving an interview with the news portal CBR, James expressed how comfortable he felt while working with Chopra and his costar Richard Madden. He said, "They are both amazing to work with... Priyanka is one of the most naturally gifted action stars I've ever worked with. Amazing.”

James recalls how her roots in India shaped her as an individual. “Her background, from what she's done in India to her whole career, has served her to be this incredible performer. No matter how complicated the choreography, how difficult the footwork is, or how wild the situation is, she got it quickly. She could do it incredibly well, with intensity. And she was an absolute joy to work with."

Citadel is an American spy action thriller series created by Josh Appelbaum, Bryan Oh, and David Weil for Amazon Prime Video, with the Russo brothers as executive producers.

Talking about the plotline of the series, actors Richard Madden and Priyanka Chopra Jonas act as Citadel agents Mason Kane and Nadia Sinh respectively. They work for the global spy agency Citadel. However, due to unforeseeable circumstances, the memories of these agents have been wiped off. Set on a mission against lethal opponents who wish to conquer the world, will these two spy agents be able to avert the disaster? Only time will tell as the final episode of the series is yet to make a landfall on the OTT platform.
