What was it like doing love scenes with Keanu? I was pretty nervous about the love scene but, in the end, Keanu's a good friend of mine and I trust him.
What was weird was that we had hours of applying those plugs on our backs before we would shoot every day. And, in a way, it's kind of erotic because you're like, "What is that? What did I just see? It took us two days to shoot a single kissing scene. We did the scene with very many clothes, then less clothes, then less clothes, and we had to do the scene maybe 50 times.
Keanu is a good kisser, so it wasn't painful. Every eight years, I kiss Keanu Reeves. What was your scariest stunt? Well, I broke my leg right away. I broke my leg doing some wire work on the first week of training, and it was a challenge to overcome because I came in really gung-ho and then I got an obstacle given to me right in the beginning.
But I'm all for obstacles to overcome. The stretching before we got on the wires was hard. The kung-fu guys would come over and sit on your back to get you to stretch more. What's up with your character in "Matrix Revolutions"? I can't say, but my part is going to be really small.
There's more about my husband, the Merovingian. He comes from a really old, old aristocratic family and he is a man who destroys family. The real evil is him, not me. You know, I don't know.
There are some things that weren't going to be in this movie that are in this movie. I've got to see the video game again because we had three different scripts going at the same time -- the game, the second movie and the third movie. So I'm not sure where they're putting stuff.
Did you get to keep your outfits from the movie? No, but I loved what costume designer Kym Barrett did. The white dress I wear really defined my character.
It shaped the way I moved. Persephone is so feminine and so elegant and so sensual -- all that was Kym Barrett. No, I didn't, but the Wachowski brothers gave me a gift which was a glass case and inside is my coat, my jacket, my sunglasses and some photographs of my journey. It has a little light in there and everything.
I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it, but it's pretty cool. I kind of see it somewhere that would make no sense. It either needs to be in a museum or some place where I stack toilet paper. Amy Longsdorf is a Palmerton-based freelance writer on film.
