Zoe Ball

ZOň BELL stars as Bloody Holly, a roller derby player, opposite Ellen Page and Drew Barrymore in Drew's directorial debut WHIP IT. Set In Bodeen, Texas, WHIP IT is the story of an ex-beauty pageant misfit, who leaves her crown behind when she discovers a roller derby league in nearby Austin. ZoŽ is next set to star in an upcoming project with Senator Entertainment.

ZoŽ Bell stars in Angel of Death, an online series created for Crackle.com, and Sony Pictures Entertainment's online video network, which consists of ten episodes, each approximately 8-10 minutes long. Zoe plays the lead character, Eve, a remorseless assassin, employed by a ruthless crime family.

Bell made her starring debut in the highly anticipated double feature film GRINDHOUSE, written and directed by Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez. She was hand picked, by Tarantino himself, to star opposite Kurt Russell and Rosario Dawson in Tarantino's segment of the double feature, DEATH PROOF.

Bell began working with Tarantino well before GRINDHOUSE in KILL BILL, VOL. 1 and KILL BILL, VOL. 2 as Uma Thurman's stunt double in the role of The Bride. She was nominated for Best Stunt by a Stunt Woman and Best Fight at the Taurus World Stunt Awards for her work in KILL BILL, VOL. 1, and took home both of those wins the following year for KILL BILL, VOL. 2.

Her talent translated to the small screen on the cult television series Xena: Warrior Princess where Bell played the stunt double for the title character Lucy Lawless.

Bell is a native of New Zealand and currently resides in Los Angeles. It was back at home that she began her diverse background in sports, including Tae Kwon Do, diving, and PADI Scuba. Bell's athleticism earned her three second-place finishes in the New Zealand Gymnastics Nationals from 1989 to 1991.
