It’s been quite a wild ride for the female action hero Zoë Bell. Discovered by Quentin Tarantino while he was working on his Kill Bill franchise, Bell began her career as a gymnast and martial artist and segued into stunt work playing Lucy Laweless’ double in Xena: Warrior Princess. After her stint standing in for Uma Thurman, Bell became a hot commodity in Hollywood and went on to appear in Catwoman, Poseidon and The Kingdom. Her association with Tarantino was then rekindled in 2007, when the director cast Bell as herself in Death Proof. This role, which not only showcased her physical dexterity but also her acting skills, led to her landing a part in Drew Barrymore’s roller derby flick, Whip It. With a new film on the way, Raze, a horror/action flick where Bell's character is forced to fight to stay alive, the Museum of the Moving Image has put together a five-film retrospective showcasing her transformation from stuntwoman to actress. Included in the program are Kill Bill Vol. 1, Kill Bill Vol. 2, Death Proof, Whip It and a special advance screening of Raze followed by a Q&A with multi-talented Bell.
