Los Angeles, May 5 (PTI) Hollywood star Malin Akerman has revealed that she felt out of her depth while working on Zack Snyder’s R-rated “Watchmen” adaptation.
The actor, who had been a part of romantic comedies like “27 Dresses” before signing on the action drama, said she struggled with her confidence on the big budget movie. Akerman, 41, played Laurie Jupiter/Silk Spectre II in the film. The character was revived last fall in Damon Lindelof’s HBO “Watchmen” adaptation, with Jean Smart playing the older version of Laurie.
'‘Watchmen' was a big shift because I felt way out of my league on that one. I really struggled because it was such a big film and I really felt like I had no idea what I was doing. I had no training and I was working with these fabulous theater actors who had all the training in the world. I definitely didn't feel worthy of being there. I felt like I had tricked them into casting me,' she told Collider.
'It was definitely a shift and I just said, ‘Alright, I can’t just follow now anymore. I have to start making decisions of what it is that I want to learn…I don’t want to feel like I’m in that position where I feel like I’m the weakest link in a production.'' 'Watchmen' also featured Patrick Wilson, Jackie Earle Haley, Billy Crudup, Matthew Goode, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Carla Gugino. PTI BK BK
