Bell began working with Quentin Tarantino well before Grindhouse hough, in Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003) and Kill Bill: Vol. 2 (2004) playing the stunt double for Uma Thurman’s role, The Bride. Bell was nominated for her work in Kill Bill, Vol. 1 in the categories of Best Stunt by a Stunt Woman and Best Fight for the Taurus World Stunt Awards, both of which she would win the following year for Kill Bill: Vol. 2. Bell also showed off her stunt-woman skills as a double for Sharon Stone in Halle Barry’s Catwoman (2004).
Bell’s talent can not only be seen on the big screen but also in the cult television series Xena: Warrior Princess (1995) where she was the stunt double for Lucy Lawless. Bell also appeared as a double in the ABC thriller Alias (2001) and on an episode of Cleopatra 2525 in 2000 as a double for Vicki Pratti.
In the action packed documentary Double Dare (2004), Bell along with legendary stunt-woman Jeannie Epper give an insight into the career of women who take falls and punches for a living. Double Dare also gives a glimpse into the struggles of stunt-women to stay thin, employed, and sane in a male dominated career.
Bell, a native of New Zealand, currently resides in Los Angeles but hopes to someday own a home in New Zealand.
