“I usually look for something that scares me, that’s the first sign that I’m on the right track, and that’s just because it’s something I haven’t done before and something I don’t know if I can do. With these roles, specifically, there’s a lot of pressure. And the big part of the process with Selina for me was letting all of that fade away, and really having my own relationship with her. After reading the script for the first time, I really felt like I knew who this person was, and I felt actually quite protective of her. There’s so much more to her than being this femme fatale, this sexy character, that Matt had incorporated into her story and I really want to just make sure that came through. She’s tough, and it’s really exciting to see a female character like that in a movie like this, I really wanted to honour that.”
