We’ve been hearing a lot from James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender in regards to X-Men: First Class, but one cast member we haven’t heard much from is Zoe Kravitz, whose character develops wings which appear out of tattoos on her back. Kravitz took part in an interview recently and spoke about taking flight as mutant Angel Salvadore.
From The Independent
“When it comes to stuff like X-Men, I just didn’t think that I would get that part. I just think I auditioned because people were auditioning and my agent was like, ‘Please go’, and had to talk me into going.”
“It was impersonal in so many ways. My character flies and I’ll be wearing a harness and I’d be wearing wires all the time. Then I’d have to stand in strange ways, pretending there are not wires and pretending that I’m flying and floating, like it’s the most normal thing in the world.”
“Also, Matthew Vaughn cares about the drama, it’s not like he’s trying to make things explode all the time, so you want to look the other actors in the eye and connect and connect. But it’s kind of hard when all this other crazy stuff is going on”
We only got a small glimpse of Kravitz in the trailer, and it looked as though her character was about to ‘entertain’ Xavier and Magneto. Angel Salvadore is a new character not a lot of people know (or care) about, but she has an interesting mutation and it’ll be interesting to see how it is handled in the movie.
As well as X-Men: First Class, which is set for a June 3rd release, Zoe Kravitz is also set to appear in the Mad Max reboot Fury Road alongside Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron and fellow X-Men actor Nicholas Hoult.
