The last time we saw Olga Kurylenko she was playing a tough cookie Bond girl in Quantum of Solace, and now it appears she will continue that tough cookie streak as she does battle against the Romans in Centurion. The image comes from Empire, who also had a chance to visit the set and talk to director Neil Marshall (Doomsday) and Olga herself.
“Etain is kind of revenge incarnate,” says the writer/director, speaking to Empire exclusively on set. “Her family were butchered by the Romans, she had her tongue cut out by the Romans, she’s had a hell of a time and she’s out for Roman blood.”
“She’s quite furious,” agrees Kurylenko. “Because one sense is not there – she can’t speak – all the others are more developed. She sees very well and hears very well: she is an animal!”
Set in AD 117 Centurion centers on the 9th Legion fighting for their lives behind enemy lines after a devastating guerrilla attack. Michael Fassbender (Inglorious Basterds), Dominic West, and Noel Clarke are among the cast, and the film will be released later this year.
