Zoe Bell is "the industry's most famous stuntwoman," and is transcending into leady lady. The beautiful New Zealand daredevil breaks down these barriers in her role opposite Morgan Freeman and Tom Cruise in the blockbuster theatrical release (April 19th) of "Oblivion." Set 60 years after an alien invasion has destroyed planet earth, "Oblivion" is an action-packed adventure thriller that pays homage to classic science fiction films of the 1970's. Zoe portrays 'Kara,' of the underground group, lead by Morgan Freeman,  of renegrades who are tracking how to save the planet. (Personal note: I saw the film and loved it.)
 
Best known as Quention Tarantinos go-to stuntwaman, Bell has worked in dozens of high profile thrillers, including "Kill Bill, Vols. 1 & 2;" "Inglourious Basterds;" "Django Unchained;" and the cult favorite, "Xena:Warrior Princess." With an impressively established resume of stunt work and a bold transition into starring roles, Bell has now combined her talents in her newest project, "Raze," a much-anticipated thriller, which premiers at the Tribeca Film Festival later this month. She not only stars in the film, but choreographed many of the stunts, setting the overall vision for the fight scenes, and is a producer on the film as well. The film is dubbed as "Fight Club" meets "Hostel." and co-stars Sherilyn Fenn and Rachel Nichols, with a cameo by Rosario Dawson. 
 
Bell was born in Waiheke Island, New Zealand, to Tish, a nurse, and Andrew Bell, a doctor. She grew up on Waiheke Island in Auckland, and participated in competitive gymnastics, dance, high diving, scuba, and track and field activities, and Tae Kwon Do. Bell began her career in 1992 when her father treated a stuntman for a head injury and came home with a phone number for her to call.
