Zoë Bell.

Zoë Bell portrays Tall Witch in Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.


New Zealand native Zoe Bell has a background in gymnastics and martial arts. She began working as a stunt woman when she doubled Lucy Lawless on the cult favorite TV series "Xena: Warrior Princess" (1995). After the cancellation of the show, Bell's next gig was as stunt double for Uma Thurman in Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003) and Kill Bill: Vol. 2 (2004). Bell was injured in the final days of filming, requiring surgery, but she has since recovered and returned to work. Bell appeared along with legendary stunt woman Jeannie Epper in Amanda Micheli's acclaimed documentary Double Dare (2004), which offers a glimpse at the lives and careers of both women, as well as the friendship they share.
