Written and directed by Quentin Tarantino, Death Proof stars Kurt Russell as Mike McKay, a Hollywood stuntman who preys on young women and uses his car to murder them. New Zealand stuntwoman Zoe Bell plays herself in a scene where she shows off her daredevil side by riding the hood of her friends’ car. Zoe’s daring exhibition, however, becomes a complete nightmare when Mike appears and tries to run them all off the road at high speed.

Prior to starring in Death Proof, Bell had previously worked with Tarantino on Kill Bill: Volume 1 and Kill Bill: Volume 1. An award-winning professional stuntwoman, Bell served as Cate Blanchett’s stunt double in the 2017 Thor: Ragnarok.
