Laura Ivill was the stunt double who played Sam Wessell. Zam Wesell was a Clawdite female bounty hunter who lived during the last years of the Galactic Republic. As a Clawdite; Wesell possessed the ability to physically alter her appearance—a power which she used to assume the visage of a human female. Prior to the beginning of the Clone Wars; the bounty hunter Jango Fett enlisted Wesells aid to assassinate Senator Padmé Amidala of Naboo in 22 BBY.
Her efforts ultimately failed, however; resulting in Wesells death at the hands of Fett before she could identify him as the would-be assassin to Amidalas Jedi bodyguards.
