New Zealander Zoë Bell is an unusual Hollywood triple threat. She's an internationally recognized stunt woman thanks to the documentary Double Dare and Quentin Tarantino's Death Proof. She's an actress with credits opposite Gerard Butler (Gamer), Ellen Page (Whip It) and Tom Cruise (Oblivion). And with her latest movie Raze, this ass-kicking leading lady has also turned producer.
While Bell is proud of all she's achieved so far and grateful for her loyal fan following, she's not done yet. When I sat down with her ahead of the release of her gritty women-in-prison thriller, we not only discussed Raze (read the first half of the interview here), but also covered a wide range of projects and challenges Bell is eager to take on. Ranging from Marvel superheroes to The ExpendaBelles and breaking into the Fast & Furious franchise, this charismatic Renaissance woman shares six dream projects she's fighting to make real.
Fast & Furious
Like anyone who has watched Bell's death-defying "Ship-Mast" sequence in Quentin Tarantino's Death Proof, I find it absolutely insane that Bell hasn't been brought into Dominic Toretto's ever-expanding circle of Fast & Furious friends and enemies. I said as much to Bell, and she confessed she actually did audition for Fast & Furious 7:
Can I ask, how have you not been in a Fast & Furious movie already?
She didn't give further details about the part she tried out for, but might it be the one MMA fighter Ronda Rousey ultimately landed?
