Interview: Zoë Bell Talks ‘Raze’ and Her Life as a Stunwoman

Movies, Video

If you’ve watched a Quentin Tarantino movie in the last ten years, you’ve seen Zoë Bell, though you might not have known it. The New Zealand-born actress/stuntwoman did Uma Thurman’s stunts in both Kill Bill flicks, and subsequently got acting roles in Tarantino’s Grindhouse and Django Unchained, as well as other films like Whip it and Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters.

Today, Bell appeared on SI Now to discuss her new movie Raze, which she stars in and produces; her training routine; and the life of a stuntwoman.

“Watch the trailer first, though — it’s definitely a specific type of film. You don’t want to accidentally walk into this one,” said Bell of Raze.


The asexuality of Raze gives it surprising power. The movie demonstrates key elements of great filmmaking that directors should employ much more frequently, and they apply to all creative pursuits.
