Exclusive: Rachel Nichols Talks CONAN and I, ALEX CROSS

     August 16, 2011

Rachel Nichols CONAN and I, ALEX CROSS interview slice

After years in pre-production, including a well respected but unproduced John Milius draft, an aborted Red Sonja redux and a countless hours of fan casting, Conan The Barbarian returns to theaters this Friday with Marcus Nispel directing Game of Thrones’ Jason Momoa, as the titular warrior.  Rose McGowan, Ron Perlman and Stephen Lang round out the cast of this 3D bloodbath.

Hemming closer to the fantastical Robert E. Howard books, this new Conan is stripped down and vicious. Recently, I sat down with Rachel Nichols to discuss her role as a pure blood missionary in the film. During our interview we discussed the benefits of being the only girl on set, the way that the story is built around her femininity, what it takes to win the heart of a barbarian and she gives us a little taste of what the new Alex Cross film, I, Alex Cross, starring Tyler Perry will look and feel like.  Hit the jump to watch.

Finally, if you missed my video interview with Jason Momoa, click here.

Rachel Nichols

  • Talks about how she was one of the few women in the film and was that fun
  • Even though the movie is called Conan, a lot of the story surrounds Nichols character. Did that surprise her
  • What does it take to win the heart of a barbarian
  • She talks about I, Alex Cross and the tone/feel of the movie. Says they are filming in Cleveland and Detroit. Says it’s going to be gritty and it’s definitely a drama.
