What makes Bell so impressive? Her career started off as a stunt double, and now she’s starring in movies herself. First, she was literally Xena: Warrior Princess when she doubled for Lucy Lawless. Then, she was Uma Thurman’s stunt double in Kill Bill. It only made sense for Quentin Tarantino to cast her in Death Proof. On top of seeing her acting chops, fans were treated to watching her hang off the hood of a 1970s Dodge Charger in one of the most iconic action scenes to date.

Bell's been appearing in movies since, even doing her own stunts as Bloody Holly in the roller derby movie Whip It, and in Tarantino's The Hateful Eight.
