Hayley Atwell Talks About Her Role As Peggy Carter In Captain America!
The British actress talks about her experiences with guns in Captain America: The First Avenger as well as the character of Peggy Carter and her co-star, Chris Evans...
On Wielding The Various Weapons In The Movie:
"I started off with a pistol and the director could clearly tell how much I loved working with it and said 'Oh just give her a machine gun' and I was like 'yes'! So I got to play with that for a few months. There's lots of action in it and I'd love to do more of it."
On The Character Of Peggy Carter:
"I think she's quite stubborn, a slightly frustrated woman who struggles with being a woman in that time. But more importantly she's a modern woman and she sees something in Captain America that she relates to, and becomes kindred spirits. He treats her very differently to how she's been treated by lots of men, in this kind of dominated world she lives in. So she's very much a fighter."
On What It Was Like To Work Alongside Chris Evans:
"Chris was a gentleman. He's, I imagine, got so much more pressure than any of us, but yet he's incredibly sincere in this part, and very charming without being goofy, and very earnest in a way. He's a very talented guy and very bright, so it was a real pleasure to work with him."
Many thanks to @WillKRoberts for the heads up!
