Danny Boyle is one of the most prolific directors of our generation, so when he speaks, people listen. Boyle is currently busy promoting his latest film 'Trance', but he opens up about the lack of strong female characters in film, something he tried to change with Rosario Dawson's character in 'Trance'.
Danny Boyle's next film is Trance
 
He explains, "Elizabeth's [the character] obviously a classic femme fatale, using her allure, her beauty to manipulate the men but I didn't want the icy blonde Hitchcock kind of thing." 
 
He adds that he was able to push Rosario Dawson to fully explore the role, saying, "It's a big problem for a lot of those actresses.They play the apparent lead in a film but when you look at the part it's not that great, they're like a figurehead. It's nice to give them a role that puts them in the engine room of the film. I've been guilty of not doing that."

It's good that Boyle noticed the issue, and tried to fix it in his movies. It's a lot more than most directors would attempt to do, especially as Hollywood continues to have a huge gender divide between females and males in all areas of film, including directing and acting.
