Zoë Kravitz Talks About Playing Angel Salvadore In X-Men: First Class!

The actress reveals her initial reluctance to audition for the role, talks about working with Matthew Vaughn as well as what it was like taking flight as Angel Salvadore...

In a recent interview with British newspaper, The Independent, the actress was quizzed on her role in the upcoming movie. Here are the main excerpts of that interview. Nothing hugely revealing about her role was mentioned but she does let slip some interesting bits of information about working with Matthew Vaughn and taking flight as Angel Salvadore!



"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"


X-Men: First Class is set to be released on June 3, later this year!

@Pyriel Maybe Darwin will be the DJ. He already looks like the cabbie in the trailer.
LEEE777 - 3/10/2011, 5:56 PM
Pyriel @ Dunno, don't care lol... and it hurts to say that, been wanting a X-Men: First Class for soooo long!

This ain't it...

Its like having The AVENGERS movie with just Iron Man in it with Jarvis as his Mother, and a bunch of second rate stringers from Stinger.
ReillyParker - 3/10/2011, 6:09 PM
Lee, please tell me your casting of Alex Pettyfer as Angel is a sick joke...
TheTaskmaster - 3/10/2011, 6:10 PM
I hope this movie doesn't let a lot of people down, I just got that feeling that it's going to :(
LEEE777 - 3/10/2011, 6:14 PM
ReillyParker @ This movies a sick joke!

An I'd take Pettyfer or anyone over this...

Angel, Cyclops, Marvel girl, Iceman and Beast a must!

An not a [frick]ing Thundercat Beast either lol.


TheTaskmaster @ They already have, when they decided to make First Class movie with no First Class (well apart from a crappy Beast of course).
HarryKolmer - 3/10/2011, 6:16 PM
@LEE
You really want Pettyfer man?
He's a bad as salmonella. Seriously, he looks the part but he can't act to save his life in anything I've seen him in.

boycott
JatevinM - 3/10/2011, 6:21 PM
You guys to realize that the entire reason that they couldnt use the original first cast was because it would cause continuity errors with the first 3 movies right? I can't wait till this movie blows everyone away and they like it and have to eat all the crap they talked about it.
Joe6Pack74 - 3/10/2011, 6:22 PM
@LEEE777 you say brothel like it is a bad thing.
TheTaskmaster - 3/10/2011, 6:27 PM
@Lee well hopefully when Marvel gets the rights back X-Men fans will get the movie they deserve, stupid Fox.

@JatevinM yeah well they brought those continuity errors upon themselves. I would much rather see a reboot then them twist around and loosely follow the source material.
Durango95 - 3/10/2011, 6:28 PM

Haha I like how she is like. " you have to hang on wires and stand around and float like its normal", your a freaking actor!!!! Thats what actors do , they pretend. Do your job!!
Bodwulf - 3/10/2011, 7:10 PM
That is the most underwhelmed i have ever seen an actress about being in a film.
Sithsidious66 - 3/10/2011, 7:15 PM

croniccris - 3/10/2011, 7:32 PM
like lenny kravitz's kid knows anything about acting....
JatevinM - 3/10/2011, 7:49 PM
Really and Truly as long as they are true to the characters and some of the story I would much rather have an original X-men movie instead of an adaptation from a specific comic.
MARLH - 3/10/2011, 7:52 PM
@ marvel72

I too rather get punched in the balls than see x-men first class in the theaters. I think I will wait till a friend rents it and they are taking a crap. While waiting for that to end I will put this movie in knowing I won't have to endure it much longer than a half hour... give or take depending on the book the friend is reading in the crapper of course.
flames809 - 3/10/2011, 8:00 PM
JatevinM- what????

movie sounds good.
deanwilkins - 3/10/2011, 8:23 PM
After reading that article, I suddenly feel less inclined to see this film. She reminds me of Halle Berry commenting on the first X-Men film.

I'm still thinking this will be surprisingly good. And how is it that people have forgotten have amazing X2 was? That was one of the top CBM's of all time, in my opinion. Wolverine finally killed people!
domdog - 3/10/2011, 8:40 PM
impersonal-wtf?
its called adapting to the character, you know, what actors are paid for doing! I would be praising the experience and thankful for being in such a big production, this is the biggest thing for her and yet she seems very skeptical about the whole thing. This kinda makes me mad.

meh
juggy4711 - 3/10/2011, 11:45 PM
I wonder if she realizes she will be playing one of the least recognized characters of all of the films?
THESPIDERMAN96 - 3/11/2011, 12:22 AM
what kind of sick joke is this
THESPIDERMAN96 - 3/11/2011, 12:22 AM

No wonder some people don't deem this site credible sometimes. I've just read through as list of forty something comments by the biggest, naivest [frick]tards ever! People are still hating on this movie for the most ridiculous reasons and most are reasons people have been harping on about for the last year! You will all go and see this movie so stop giving it the big'en. Vaughn with do a great job with what time he has been given by FOX. Prepare to turn turncoat after you inevitably see the movie idiots
HarryBloodscreaming - 3/11/2011, 1:20 AM
@ CraptainAmerica -- I like the cut of your jib, mister!
Orphix - 3/11/2011, 1:22 AM
I'll get an opinion on this film when I see it.

Illuminatus - 3/11/2011, 2:00 AM
@JavetinM You sir, are a moron:)
Illuminatus - 3/11/2011, 2:06 AM
@Craptainamerica I would be mindful about what I said about the users of this site if I were you. Arent you already on Big G's badside? I recommend that you bite your tongue, because who knows when youll go to far and get yourself banned.

Also, I have seen (and made myself) many clear, logical reasons why I believe (along with others) that this film will ultimately fail. And not even on a basic comic to film translation. You have not provided one shred of reason behind your point of view, so doesnt that make YOU the "idiot" here?:)
Grimm - 3/11/2011, 2:16 AM
@ craptainamerica
This site is one of the best things going. If you don't like it, don't troll the comments...just GTFO
Bayoknight - 3/11/2011, 4:47 AM
Approach the movie wt out the X-men centric atitude and u wont be disappointed. Besides we never had a comic that showed us a pre chrome -Dome head Charles or a Simon Templar looking Magneto.Lets keep our Fingers Cross
I love X-men last stand
Cumulactus - 3/11/2011, 5:36 AM
I know everything I need to know from things I learned on this web site.

And I WAS planning on watching anyway it until people like CraptainAmerica took it upon themselves to badmouth me for sharing my thoughts on the matter.

So I will just save the money I might have blown on seeing this for Thor, Cap, or GL. No prob. My interest was super low anyway.

She's mad pretty, but...
