Jaimie Alexander Talks THOR: THE DARK WORLD, Lady SIF Role, Director Alan Taylor And More
Promising the anticipated Marvel sequel will indeed explore Thor and Lady Sif's relationship, the Goddess of War actress Jaimie Alexander talks about Thor: The Dark World in a recent interview!
Making promotional rounds for The Last Stand, Jaimie Alexander recently talked in-depth with I Am Rogue about her ‘Lady Sif’ role in Marvel's much-anticipated Thor: The Dark World. Weighing in on the sequel's new direction via Alan Taylor, the actress discusses her character's relationship with Chris Hemsworth's titular hero, the Warriors Three, and Zachary Levi. Check out the video below.
“I just finished shooting about a week and a half ago. There's going to be a bit of a darker feel and obviously a lot more action. We get to explore different realms a lot more and you see a lot more Asgard; and you get to know the people of Asgard. There is more [character development] with Sif. We sort of explore the Thor-Sif relationship a little bit; kind of [in a romantic way]. It's more like getting a feel of who these people are, how the way they are with each other. It was really fun for me and Chris. Him and I are almost like brother and sister too, so I was like maybe that translates into 'ohh they love each other on camera.' We had a good time making that movie.”
“That was hard at first [returning with a new director] because I didn't know what to expect. I love Kenneth Branagh very much He was a huge staple in my life because he launched my career. I gotta say, however, it is always great working with new people. Alan Taylor has brought a whole new vision to Thor. We've remained our own characters obviously, so there's still that similarity between the first and second one. But there's a darker feel to this one; a little more Gladiator-ish, a bit more viking-ish. So I'm really excited to see how it turns out.”
“The script did [feel more rooted in the comic book stuff]. I could read certain scenes and actually see how someone would do the drawings on the page. With that sense, Marvel was great; they said 'make it your own.' We just have a great team. I have been very lucky in my career. It was slightly different [with Zachary Levi coming in], because he's not Josh Dallas, but he's fantastic. And I've know Zach for years. He was actually one of the first choices for Fandral, so it's great to have him on board. He's definitely Fandral, and he's such a lovely guy, team player and really sweet. Everybody welcomed him with open arms and he's definitely a part of the family.”
