Kristen Stewart Shares New SNOW WHITE & THE HUNTSMAN Details
The Twilight actress shares some new background information on her version of Snow White in Universal's upcoming film Snow White and the Huntsman.
"Her mother and her father were killed basically right in front of her."
In the latest issue of SFX Magazine there is a new Snow White and the Huntsman article. In the article Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth open up a bit about the film. Kristen makes it clear that this retelling of the Snow White fairy tale is extremely dark and won't skip over the tragic moments in the character's life.
"She's definitely a born leader," says Twilight mega-star Kristen Stewart, who plays Snow White, stepdaughter of the evil Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron). "I mean, it's literally pumping through those veins, but it's been taken from her she was put away when she was seven years old and her mother and her father were killed basically right in front of her. And we're not doing the version of a fairytale that wouldn't deal with all of those things, where you sort of skim over all those things. It's like all of these things are actually really important to the characters. She bleeds for her land and her people, and that's just such a cool concept for me because it's other people caring about people. I mean, she's strong. She can kick ass. I think she genuinely lacks that innate fear of death that we all have. She's got serious, fierce survival, not skills but insights. But she isn't afraid of anything."
Chris on the other hand reveals that he'll be sporting a Scottish accent for his role as the Huntsman. He also gushes about the enormous battle sequences.
"Growing up I always loved films like this, films that transported you into another world," says Hemsorth, who loses the blonde mane and adopts a Scottish accent to play the grizzled Huntsman. "We've had plenty of big fight sequences and battle sequences which were great. We had like a hundred horse on the beach at one stage, and 30 or 40 horses within the castle they'd built, a hundred extras in full armor fighting and things on fire. It certainly gets the adrenaline going."
Snow White & The Huntsman, will open in theaters June 1, 2012. Starring Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth, Sam Claflin, Ian McShane, Ray Winstone, Nick Frost, and Bob Hoskins.
