With the Covid-19 Pandemic still in full-flow around the globe, many celebrities have been finding ways to entertain themselves and us. I mentioned a few in a couple of previous posts which can be found here and here.
Taking inspiration from a group of cosplayers who made a superhero quick-change movie, New Zealand stunt-woman and actress Zoë Bell decided to do something similar.
Zoë has worked on some of the biggest TV and Films of the past couple of decades and has doubled for actresses such as Uma Thurman, Cate Blanchett and Lucy Lawless.
The film starts with Zoë sitting on her couch before leaping up complaining of being bored. She’s missing playing with her friends but then has an idea of how she can interact with them. Zoë then takes a kick at the camera and the scene quickly switches to Lucy Lawless (Xena: Warrior Princess & D’Anna Biers in BSG) who has taken a kick in the face.
Lucy then takes out a familiar weapon and does the same. The fight quickly jumps from scene to scene with a different actress in each one, each doing something different. Its seamless and well done!
Notable names include two Charlie’s Angels, Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz, with this being Cameron’s first acting gig for a while. Scarlett Johansson and Black Widow co-star Florence Pugh also find very novel ways to fight back. Zoe Saldana and Halle Berry both take a soaking and Margot Robbie gets her own back with a particular sports object.
Complete list of who is in the video is below.

Sophia Di Martino
Hopefully they will do another. Please Zoë if you read this, see if you can get Brie Larson, Tessa Thompson or Emilia Clarke involved too. Or maybe even some of the new Charlie’s Angels?
It’s not much to ask I know!
Please give it a watch. Its a great pick-me-up in times like these. Huge thanks to Zoë and everyone else for taking part!
