Celebrity Birthday of the Day – November 17

Stuntwoman Zoe Bell has been taking spills for celebrities ever since she was 14, when she got her first stunt job jumping out of a car in the New Zealand soap opera Shortland Street. Her first major credit came with the 1998 TV series Xena: Warrior Princess, in which she doubled for Lucy Lawless. The show lasted until 2001, and shortly thereafter, in 2003, Zoe Bell caught Quentin Tarantino’s eye while performing stunts for Uma Thurman in Kill Bill vol. 1 and vol. 2. Since then, Bell has done stunt work on the TV show Alias and in movies such as Catwoman, Lovewrecked, Poseidon, The Kingdom, Planet Terror, Inglourious Basterds, The Final Destination, and in Death Proof (in which she plays herself). Outside of stunt work, Bell has also moved into acting, playing roles on the TV shows Lost and CSI: Miami, and in movies such as Bitch Slap, Gamer, Whip It, and the upcoming Django Unchained. She’s also done voice work for Fallout: New Vegas. In other words, Zoe Bell rules. She turns 34 today.
