Zam Wessel - Star Wars

Zam Wessel from Star Wars played by Leanna Walsman.

Zam Wessel is a fictional female in the Star Wars film series who was played on screen by Leanna Walsman. Not much is known about this character, of what we do know is that Zam is a female bounty hunter who was hired by another bounty hunter (Jango Fett) to kill Senator Padme Amidala. She can blend into any place as he has the ability to shape-shift. Zam is one of the few female characters in the films.

Zam's first attempt at killing Padme was to put a bomb on Padme's transporter. The bomb worked but it only succeeded in killing a decoy, Padme had got off the craft moments earlier. Zam was given a second by Jango Fett to kill Padme. The second time would be to use death slugs to be inserted into the sleeping quarters of the Padme but the two Jedi Knights protecting her were able to sense something wrong and get into the room and kill the slugs.

After killing the slugs, Obi-Wan Kenobi saw the drone that inserted the slugs into the room and jumped and caught on to it. Whilst Obi-Wan was holding onto the drone, Anakin was getting a vehicle to chase Anakin and save him.

After Zam failed to kill Padme, she was chased by Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker through the city capital of Coruscant. The chase was in the air and in the ground. The two Jedi knights chased Zam into a public house which house two character played by the actors behind Jar Jar Binks and C-3PO.

Zam was injured by one of the Jedis as Zam was able to kill one of them. Obi-Wan and Anakin took Zam out of the building which made it easy for Jango Fett to shoot and kill Zam before she revealed anything.
