New Delhi: Hollywood starlet Monica Bellucci whose action-thriller film ‘Memory’ co-starring Liam Neeson, Guy Pearce and Taj Atwal among others released on Friday (April 29) recently spoke about her ‘crazy’ role in the film, getting to know her ‘Taken’ co-star Liam Neeson and the experience of aging.
In a chat with WION, the 57-year-old actress spoke about her role as Davana Sealman, a philanthropist and businesswoman involved in crimes.
She said, “I was excited to play this role. I have not played many where I am the antagonist. There are some aspects of Davana’s life where she is a good human being, but there’s other times where she is a monster. Playing this duality interested me. For this role, I wanted to break the mould in which I have been cast most of my life. I gained some weight and the lighting and makeup also contributed to the creation of this new type of character for me.”
