After sustaining some injuries and looking fierce on the set of ‘Thor: The Dark World’, Jamie Alexander recently revealed that she has completed shooting on the next big screen adventure for the Asgardian Avenger. In an interview with I Am Rogue while promoting her new film ‘The Last Stand’, the actress who played Lady Sif in Kenneth Branagh’s ‘Thor’ reveals a few things about stepping into the character once again.
On the expanded role of Sif and where we will see her character go in terms of development, Alexander said:
“There is more [character development] with Sif. We sort of explore the Thor-Sif relationship a little bit; kind of [in a romantic way]. It’s more like getting a feel of who these people are, how the way they are with each other. It was really fun for me and Chris. Him and I are almost like brother and sister too, so I was like maybe that translates into ‘ohh they love each other on camera.’ We had a good time making that movie.”
On working with the new director, Alan Taylor, she says:
“I didn’t know what to expect. I love Kenneth Branagh very much He was a huge staple in my life because he launched my career. I gotta say, however, it is always great working with new people. Alan Taylor has brought a whole new vision to Thor. We’ve remained our own characters obviously, so there’s still that similarity between the first and second one. But there’s a darker feel to this one; a little more ‘Gladiator’-ish, a bit more viking-ish.”
For the whole interview, including her thoughts on new co-star Zachary Levi who took over the role of Fandral the Dashing and the feel that the story felt more rooted in the source material, check out the video below:
‘Thor: The Dark World’, starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Tadanobu Asano, Zachary Levi, and Anthony Hopkins, is scheduled to hit theaters on November 8, 2013.
