Blade series

  • "I love the action stuff, that's my favorite part of doing Blade: Trinity. It's a blast to come to work every day and not worry about lines and actually think about choreography instead. It's completely different for me."
  • "Abigail is Whistler's daughter, so she's really mentally strong and kind of a closed-off person because she's had all this death in her family because of the vampires. I think she feels the need to [pursue] a lot of vengeance for her familiy. She's more of a stoic character-but incredibly smart and incredibly able, trained and deadly with her weapons. But she just does her job and moves along. She doesn't take it all in though; she just lets it all roll off of her. There are some vulnerable moments for her, but she's very stoic."
  • "We never actually see Whistler and Abigail together in this movie. I never get to shoot with Kris. But they don't have a close relationship simply because he's been training Blade and she came to him when she was probably about 18 or so and said, "This is in me, this is part of my blood. I want to be part of this fight." So she's been training separately in secret, but he is her mentor. He's her hero. She puts him on a pedestal. And as the movie goes on, Abigail begins to see Blade as a father figure because all her life she's heard about Blade. And here's this guy, who her father trained for years, and knows her father better than even she does. She idolizes him."

X-Men series

  • "People keep talking about this, I don't know anything about it. It's a little bit too soon for that kind of an announcement. I'm excited about this series... I love Wolverine, Hugh Jackman is so cool... people are surprising me about it all the time. When you see that people actually really think that could be an amazing character... when other people are excited about things."
  • "That particular character was really cool. She was this vivacious woman who is thrilled about her own immortality, and it was interesting, that kind of persona, I thought, for a quote-unquote “villain” character. And I was really interested in the director, so it was worth the conversation."
