Eva Green discusses ‘300 Rise of an Empire’ character, she’s ‘very strong’

The sequel to Zack Snyder’s 300 lands this year and star Eva Green reflected on the intense production and how it affected her body.

300 Rise of an Empire posterDuring an interview with Empire Magazine she says “Oh, my God, it’s very physically demanding. I feel like I’m smoking too much. It’s very visceral and I’ve never done anything like it before, but I’ve always loved those Zhang Yimou [martial arts] films.

“I’m too much in my head usually and this is all in the body, so it’s a good experience. I’ve got a good bum now!”

Green plays Artemisia and discussed her character.

“She’s a very cool character. She’s very ballsy and brave, and very much ahead of her time. She’s Greek by birth but her heart is Persian. She had her whole family slaughtered before her eyes when she was a child and [Xerxes’ father] King Darius rescued her and raised her as his own ‘son’.

“I wouldn’t say she’s manly, but she’s very strong, very badaboom.”

300: Rise of an Empire arrives on theaters on March 7, 2014.

Official synopsis: After its victory over Leonidas’ 300, the Persian Army under the command of Xerxes marches south towards the major Greek city-states. The Democratic city of Athens, first on the path of Xerxes’ army, bases its strength on its fleet, led by admiral Themistocles. Themistocles is forced to an unwilling alliance with the traditional rival of Athens, oligarchic Sparta whose might lies with its superior infantry troops. But Xerxes still reigns supreme in numbers over sea and land.
