Elle Driver (California Mountain Snake)

Whatever happened to the wicked nurses in horror or pulp films like the Kill Bill Nurse in Kill Bill Vol 1?

Daryl Hannah portrays one of my favorite all time evil nurse characters. The contradiction of Elle's portrayal through out all her scenes.

She walks into The Bride's hospital room wearing a bright white nurse uniform because it represents purity but she is evil and vengeful and the Red Cross patch over her right eye is the result of her utter disrespect for Pai Mei her teacher and master who
she poisons. The best part of her character is her hate and respect for the Bride, Black Mamba aka Uma Thurman. Elle poisons three people in the film and succeeds killing two out of the three.

"It's the first villain that I've played in a movie that has absolutely no vulnerability and no innocence, nothing whatsoever that is likable about her, other than she's so bad. All the other Deadly Vipers have some empathetic quality: [O-Ren Ishii] has this horrible past, [Vernita Green] just wants to be a mom, [the Bride] has been abused, but my character is just bad all the way through, there's nothing to like about her, and you're going to hate her so much.”  Daryl Hannah (on Elle Driver)
