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.

Domino – the movie – also features Lucy Liu, Christopher Walken, Mena Suvari, Mickey Rourke, and Jacqueline Bisset.

Action heroes die, too.

    Pronounced is spelled with one “p” not two.

    I wonder how you become a bounty hunter… hmmm…

    As a first move, I would scan the horizon for bounty

    So we’re hunting for bounty? Need to buy binoculars…

    Thanks. I am that stupid that a simple “typo in pronounced” would not have sufficed since I clearly thought pronounced had two p’s.

    Thank you for expounding on the subject of the post as well. Your insight and or reflections were deeply insightful.

    Snarky, are we?

    She’s ugly. Chunky too. How could she have been a model.

    Well I’m honestly sad she died, especially that way (though she brought it on herself, either by scuicide or just druggie stupidity). Before the druggie buisiness, Domino Harvey was apperantly one of the best bounty hunters in L.A., male or female (look her up, interesting biography). It’s just a shame she had to go and slip into druggs. Can’t think of a clever way to wrap this comment up so I’m leaving it at that.
