London, Dec 25 Actress Kate Beckinsale, who is all set to resume her role as vampire warrior Selene in “Underworld: Awakening” says she was reluctant to return to the movie series.
“I wasn’t planning to play her again. I think it’s weird for an actor to play a part more than once. But Selene finds out she has a daughter, which was interesting to me, because she’s not the most maternal person,” contactmusic.com quoted her as saying.
Beckinsale revealed she felt “proud and puzzled” by the character.
“I’m proud and also puzzled by her. When I started acting, I was all militant and feministy.”
“I didn’t want to be the girl in movies who was always crying in the shower. It’s hard to get a female franchise. You need different things from female action heroes, they need to have an emotional side, and that can be difficult,” she said.
