A stuntwoman-turned-action star, New Zealander Zoe Bell established herself by standing in for A-list actresses on some of filmdom's most dangerous and intimidating stunts. Bell achieved her first major career coup in her native country, by doubling for Lucy Lawless on the hit fantasy-action series Xena: Warrior Princess, and accompanied that with additional stunt work on small-screen programs including The Chosen, Shortland Street, and Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. Bell subsequently moved to Hollywood and commenced a multi-film collaboration with Quentin Tarantino that included the pictures Kill Bill Vol. 1 (2003), Kill Bill Vol. 2 (2004), and Tarantino's Death Proof segment of the omnibus Grindhouse (2007), before signing to headline her own action feature in 2008. Aside from her Tarantino collaborations, Bell's Hollywood resumé also includes such pictures as Catwoman (2004) and Poseidon (2006). The documentary Double Dare (2003) provided biographical portraits of Bell and fellow stuntwoman Jeannie Epper.
