Now playing in theaters is director Paul W.S. Anderson’s disaster epic Pompeii. The film stars Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) as an enslaved Celtic gladiator named Milo who falls in love with a noblewoman (Emily Browning) on the eve of a massive volcanic eruption that destroys Pompeii, an event that also brings him face-to-face with the man (Kiefer Sutherland) who slaughtered his family years earlier. The film also stars Jared Harris, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Carrie-Anne Moss, Sasha Roiz, Jessica Lucas, and Paz Vega.
At the Los Angeles press day, I landed an exclusive video interview with Browning. She talked about her reaction to the finished film, how Anderson likes to beat up his actors,if the script changed during production, what it was like being at Sundance for God Helps the Girl, and more. Hit the jump for what she had to say.
