Kate Beckinsale Interview – Underworld: Blood Wars – “I’m all about as many vaginas being involved as possible”
Playing a sexy vampire in cult franchise Underworld has defined Kate Beckinsale’s life, both personally and professionally, for the past 13 years. Cast in 2003 as Underworld’s “Death dealer” Selene, soon-after she would wed Underworld director and co-creator Len Wiseman, their 12 year marriage ending earlier this year.
Q: But how was it different to work with a female director?
Kate: I’m all about as many vaginas being involved as possible. I don’t think gender has a lot to do with whether you’re a good director or a bad director. I know it’s coming up a lot because it’s an action heroine used to be unusual and now it’s less unusual. I hope in a few years a woman director will be less unusual as well.
