Rila Fukushima On Yukio & Logan's Relationship In THE WOLVERINE; Plus New Still
Fans of Chris Claremont's "Japan Saga" will know that Yukio has a pretty complicated relationship with Wolverine; but will that carry over to James Mangold's movie? Read on to find out what the lovely Rila Fukushima has to say about it.
We've heard from most of the other cast members of The Wolverine, and now it's Japanese model turned actress Rila Fukushima's turn. While chatting to press on the Australian set of The Wolverine, Fukushima discussed her training for the role, her character's altered appearance and much more -- but most interesting is her take on the relationship between Yukio and Logan. The actress doesn't reveal outright if we can expect any romantic entanglements or not, but does suggest that things between the two will remain purely platonic, and might result in a but of humor too.
"You will see when you watch the film, but also they’re buddies. They fight together. I think Yukio and Logan have a lot in common. Yukio has trouble in trying to find Logan and bringing him to Japan, that’s the first mission for Yukio and I think Logan… They understand, because they are both soldiers, lonely soldiers. She’s an assassin, so they care about each other. It’s a funny pairing, but she has a lot of confidence, so sometimes they can annoy each other or they’ll hate each other. It’s really fun. It’s a little funny.”
