Los Altos native Margo Sargent, 22, recently experienced the thrill of a lifetime when she was one of 10 synchronized swimmers selected to appear in the new movie, “Hail, Caesar!” starring George Clooney and Channing Tatum. “In the distance one day, I saw Channing Tatum. It was cool to see (him) with my own eyes.” Sargent took up synchronized swimming at age 6. Courtesy of Rachel SHERBOW/SINGER ASSOCIATES
The new movie “Hail, Caesar!” features a scene in which actress Scarlett Johansson dives into a pool of 32 synchronized swimmers – one of whom was born and raised in Los Altos.
“It was incredible being on such a huge set, a huge stage,” said Margo Sargent, 22. “In the distance one day, I saw Channing Tatum. It was cool to see (him) with my own eyes.”
