Looks like Cate Blanchett's stunt double Zoe Bell has come out of stunt doubling retirement so she can work with Thor Ragnarok director Taika Waititi and Cate Blanchett. She can be seen here performing stunts as Hela for Thor Ragnarok. Also Hela's costume lighting test and filming at Village Roadshow studios on the Asgard set on Queensland's Gold Coast.
Zoe Bell is one of the best stunt actressess in the business. A new video shows Bell perfecting stunts as Hela on the set of Thor: Ragnarok, filling in for Cate Blanchette.
Some of her most notable stunt work includes doubling for Lucy Lawless in Xena: Warrior Princess and for Uma Thurman in Kill Bill.
Bell previously appeared in another comic book movie. She performed high-wall stunts for Sharon Stone in Catwoman.
You probably recognize Zoe Bell from almost every single Quentin Tarantino film. She starred in his Grindhouse Collection, Inglorious Basterds, Django Unchained and most recently The Hateful Eight.
The cast of Thor: Ragnarok features returning stars Chris Hemsworth (Rush) in the title role for the fifth time; Tom Hiddleston (Kong: Skull Island) as Thor’s adversarial, adopted brother, Loki; Idris Elba (The Dark Tower) as the Asgardian sentry, Heimdall; and Sir Anthony Hopkins (Silence of the Lambs) again portraying Odin, Ruler of Asgard. Newcomers to the franchise include Cate Blanchett (Cinderella) as the mysterious and powerful new villain Hela, Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic Park) as the eccentric Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson (Creed) as the classic hero Valkyrie, Karl Urban (Star Trek) as Skurge, and Mark Ruffalo (The Avengers) reprising his role of Bruce Banner/The Hulk.
