Taylor Kitsch recently spoke to MediaBlvd Magazine about playing Gambit in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. He didn’t reveal anything interesting, which was probably due to the huge contract he had to sign promising not to reveal anything interesting. The questions weren’t that great either. Anyhow, here’s the interview:
MediaBlvd> Who did you play in that?
Taylor> I played a character called Gambit. He’s just another comic book character that has kinetic energy. It’s a fun role. You’ll have fun watching it.
MediaBlvd> How familiar were you with Gambit before you got the part?
Taylor> I knew of him, but I didn’t know the following he had, and I’m sure I’m still going to be exposed to that. I love the character, I love the powers, and I love what they did with him. I didn’t know that much, but in my experience, it was a blessing to go in and create my take on him. I’m excited for it, to say the least.
MediaBlvd> Is it fun to play a superhero?
Taylor> Absolutely! It’s a great ride. I had so much fun in Australia.
From the leaked Comic Con trailer we saw that Gambit had a lot of card throwing and staff wielding action, which will no doubt please Gambit fans who have been waiting to see him on the big screen for years.
