Young Adult actress Charlize Theron has teased some information about what the audience members can expect from her character in the forthcoming Alien prequel Prometheus. Charlize claims that her character is a bit of a villain in the film but, without giving too much away, her character starts of one way and ends up another.
Theron explained, “I play somewhat of a villain in it. She’s the suit that runs the company that has nickeled and dimed this whole thing together, to fund this mission. She starts out one thing and ends up another thing. It’s a pretty nice surprise, toward the third act, so I don’t want to ruin that for you, but she really does start out very one-dimensional.”
She added, “The great thing about Ridley is that he shoots everything so layered that you always wonder. There were many days that I showed up and he would do this tiny little thing like throw me in the corner, just lurking. And then, all of a sudden, that became a character trait. I would always be in the corner, lurking over everybody, and not saying anything, but just watching. Then, you realize that it really adds to this enigma of this character and what her agenda really is.”
Prometheus is set to be released on June 1, 2012 in the UK and then on June 8, 2012 in the US.
