Q: What were your thoughts after reading the script?
A: I certainly didn't expect the script that lay beneath that front page. It's a trip! It's been so much fun to be a part of a project like this and be asked to do this much stuff in such a short time.
Q: What is your character's relationship to Noah's character?
A: I play Nicole Noone, who helps drag Flynn into real life, kicking and screaming. She's much more comfortable in the world of adventures, jungles and excitement. She has all of these great physical skills, from making fires and sharpening and using machetes to pulling tarantulas off of Flynn. She's the brawn and he's the brains.
Q: Did you have to do any physical training for this role?
A: I have no martial arts training so I acquired all the martial arts training in four weeks. It was a crash course on how to kick butt. It was great and I had a lot of fun. I did a handful of Tae Bo classes in Los Angeles, and I have been thanking Billy Banks everyday for the little basics I had. For this role, I had really fantastic training from a sensei and the stunt people. I don't want to claim any black belt knowledge, but I can do the 12 moves I've been taught to do convincingly. It's great to go to bed and be physically tired, not just drained from sitting around for 12 hours. I was tired from climbing trees, from falling off a bridge, swimming down a waterfall and doing martial arts with Kelly Hu.
Q: How was it working with Noah Wyle?
A: I obviously knew his work but had never worked with him. It's a real delight. I can't think of anyone nicer to do a scene with - he has a great sense of humor, talent and professionalism that he brings. He made it really fun to come to work.
Q: Was it a challenge acting on green screen?
A: This was a whole new experience for me. The production and art design people give an image of what the scene will look like, but you really have to use your imagination and create it yourself. It's fun because you're drawing on your own imagination. It was a challenge but a great one.
Q: How do you hope audiences will respond to this movie?
A: I hope audiences will react the same way I did when I first read the script, which was to see how delightful this story is. It's not pretentious in any way, and it's not just another adventure film. This is really a timeless, charming story.
