When my physicality is involve...

When my physicality is involved, it's kind of my comfort zone, so I find it much easier to access emotions.

The physical element of a role...

The physical element of a role is something I'm super familiar with, and I love it. I've definitely made the transition into acting over doubling, just because I needed to make it clear to myself, so that I fully committed.

Being a stunt girl is very muc...

Being a stunt girl is very much my comfort zone, so I had to remove the comfort zone to step fully into the slightly scarier zone. Also, just being perceived as an actor by the outside world, rather than as the stunt girl who does dialogue, has been a part of the challenge in front of me.

I love the idea of doing comed...

I love the idea of doing comedy, whether it's action comedy or just straight comedy. It's such a big, new world for me that I'm starting to realize that any character that I relate to, in any way, shape or form, or that I have any appreciation for, given enough preparation, I can find that person.

I'm certainly not on a mission...

I'm certainly not on a mission to be taken seriously as a dramatic actress, any more than I am just to be able to get roles that are exciting and satisfying to me. If that means action, then that means action.

I love acting. And if there's a niche that needs filling, I'm happy to get in there and try to fill it.

A couple years in [to acting],...

A couple years in [to acting], I recognized that I developed methods from being a stuntwoman for so long that worked for me that I wasn't aware of. And I had to become aware of them, because I didn't recognize that I could actually apply them across the board.

I think because I am a physica...

I think because I am a physical person, and because my way of expressing and performing and storytelling or explaining has always been with my body, if I can combine the two I find it really liberating.

Zoe Bell 36 quotes

I would find it more difficult if somebody else was doing the action.

Zoe Bell 36 quotes

I like the debate, but I don't really like the fight. I don't like being in the ring. I'm not competitive.

People are far more protective [of women] instinctively.

I had to paint the picture that I was never scared, otherwise I couldn't do my job. But now, as an actor, I'm literally paid to look emotionally accessible.

My favorite thing in moviemaki...

My favorite thing in moviemaking is to shoot in chronological order if at all possible, because it just helps for continuity and all the logistical purposes. It also helps with performance and the journey of each character, but I also think it's good for the director and everyone [else] involved.

Zoe Bell 36 quotes

My job as a double was always ...

My job as a double was always to put [actors] at ease. My job was to make my character, or the actress that I was doubling, look as badass as possible by being there.

Zoe Bell 36 quotes

I think the biggest shift for ...

I think the biggest shift for me is - this is going to sound like a wanky actor, but - getting in touch with, and learning to not just appreciate, but actually really enjoy being a woman. Because for so long I was a jock, and I was an athlete, and I was a tomboy, and people would joke about like, fancy dress, you should go as a girl.

Some of my best friends are like, 'I love that you are just the biggest pussy on the planet.' And I have no problem with it at all, I love it. But it took a long time to understand that that's a part of my tapestry.

Zoe Bell 36 quotes

Actually my relationships with...

Actually my relationships with my girlfriends have become that much deeper and more profound, because I'm like, huh, yeah, I don't have to judge you, or you judge me. It was a lot of - I didn't want to be that crazy girlfriend.

I'm a poster child for feminism whether I like it or not, but I was resistant to the part of me that was a woman.

Zoe Bell 36 quotes

The thing that I come across is that people think that I might actually be super aggressive, want-to-fight type in real life. The irony is that that's just not true, at all.

Feeling fear is a good sign that your survival instincts are intact. You need to appreciate the dangers to stay safe.
