I love to be called an action star says
The 5 feet 7 inch tall actress Kate Beckinsale is always in the news for her films and her personality. This time around she is back in the limelight for her film “Total Recall” of Sony Pictures in which she is playing the character of Lori. The film which releases worldwide on 3rd August also stars Actor Colin Farrell and Jessica Biel alongside Kate in the lead roles. Producer Toby Jaffe and Neal Moritz’s this film is directed by Len Wiseman.
In Total Recall, Kate plays a negative character for the first time. Sharing her experience she says, “I have played the character of Quaid’s wife Lori. If at one point of time she is a loving wife in the next minute she is a ruthless murderer. I have never played a dark character like this one which is a major reason why I have worked in this film”
Kate has mostly worked in action films but why is it that she prefers action over romance and drama? To which Kate replies, “I was 17 when I started acting. I have always been independent woman and I do not like to portray the character of a weak, meek woman. I love doing action films for that reason and I love to be called an action star!”
In the original Total Recall which was released in 1990 the character of Lori was played by actress Sharon Stone. So while playing this role did she face any sort of pressure? “Oh no!” she says, “I have seen the original Total Recall, I like it very much and Sharon Stone’s performance is indeed commendable. But I did not feel any sort of pressure as such.”
