Paquin Trained For X2

Anna Paquin, who reprises the role of Rogue in the upcoming X-Men sequel film, X2, told SCI FI Wire that she had to prepare for the movie's physical rigors. "I have some pretty cool stunts that I got to do, [for which] I trained for three months," Paquin said in an interview. "I would tell you about [them], but I can't tell you anything about the plot, so I can't tell you about the stunts, because it would give stuff away. I had a lot of fun with all this wire work on harnesses and stuff, and it's all me when you see the movie."

Paquin added that working on a technically complex movie made her appreciate the difference between blockbusters and low-key dramas. "Those kinds of movies are so completely different than any other film you'll work on, because so little of the time you spend on set has anything to do with the job that an actor does," she said. "You're waiting a lot for technical things to be set up and figured out. There's always going to be glitches along the way, equipment not working the way it's supposed to, or just all these things I don't really understand a lot about, but [that] have nothing to do with acting whatsoever. It just means it takes a really, really, really long time and can be very long hours. But there is also a lot of fun stuff you get to do in those movies that you wouldn't get to do in a straight, normal film." X2 opens May 2, 2003.
