ANNA PAQUIN ('Rogue')
How was your experience on "X-Men 2?"
It was good. Those kinds of movies - I've only done two of them - but are [they] so completely different from any other film you'll ever work on because so little of the time that you actually spend on set has anything to do with the job that an actor does. You are waiting a lot for technical things to be set up and figured out. There's always going to be little hitches along the way, equipment not working the way it's supposed to. Just all these things that I don't really understand a lot about but have nothing to do with acting whatsoever. It just means it takes a really, really, really long time and [it] can be very long hours. But, there's also a lot of fun stuff that you get to do in those movies that you wouldn't get to do in any other straight, normal film.
What was the most fun aspect of doing the "X-Men" movies?
I have pretty fun stunt stuff that I got to do that I had to train for for like three months, which I would tell you about but I can't tell you anything about the plot (laughing) so I can't tell you anything about the stunts, because it would give stuff away. I had a lot of fun doing wirework, like harnesses and stuff.
Did you do any fighting?
I don't know how to explain it without giving away stuff. It's really cool and it's all me when you see the movie.
