Girls Don’t Cry

Stuntwoman Zoë Bell, 30, often found it easier to “brawl than bawl” when filming online series Angel of Death, in which she plays assassin Eve. Bell had to display both action and acting chops. “I had to get over that fear of showing emotion,” said Bell. “Doing the butt-kicking stuff was no problem. But crying? That’s scary!” Bell has doubled for Lucy Lawless (Xena: Warrior Princess), Uma Thurman (Kill Bill: Vol. 1 and Kill Bill: Vol. 2) and Sharon Stone (Catwoman). She next appears as a roller-derby player in Whip It, starring Ellen Page and Drew Barrymore and returns to stunt work for Quentin Tarentino in his upcoming film Inglorious Bastards. “I don’t want to be put in any box,” she said. “I want to do everything.” Lucy Lawless stars alongside Bell in Angel of Death as next-door-neighbour, Vera.
