Little rich girl turned model turned bounty hunter turned druggie turned corpse.
All in 35 years. Domino Harvey was pronounced dead Monday after being found unconscious in her bathtrub, reports WPVI and the Associated Press.
The film Domino loosely based on her life and her sawed-off shotgun Betsy (but not her bisexuality) is still set for a November release (though apparently still August in the UK). It is to star Natalie Portman doppelganger Keira Knightley. The film is being played up, not yet with the death, as “an entertaining mix of gritty action, biting comedy and sharp visuals. The film is inspired by the life of Domino Harvey, daughter of legendary actor Laurence Harvey and a former model who rejected her privileged Beverly Hills life to become a bounty hunter.
Her father died at 45. Her mother, 1960s-era model Paulene Stone is still alive. Domino, educated in the English school system (like Lara Croft) was named after a James Bond character in 1965′s Thunderball.
