Lena Heady talks about her costume, or lack of it, in the movie version of Frank Miller's 300 comic.
Lena Heady (The Brothers Grimm) talked with Superhero Hype about her character Queen Gorgo, wife of Gerard Butler's King Leonidas: "I just wear very little," she admitted, "And they go off to war and I'm sort of left holding the political court as they f*** off and fight. Basically, she's in over her head, so she sort of deals with the back home malarkey."
Production has wrapped, Heady said. And when asked if she went through the intense training as the actors who play Sparta and Persia's warriors did, she replied: "I hardly wore any clothes, so I wished I had trained, but it was a really great experience. The weird blue screen/green screen was freaky. You can't sort of relate to any world, so it's very odd, and emotionally, there's nothing to connect to apart from another actor. It was very strange, but the director Zack Snyder [Dawn of the Dead] is awesome. He's such a great human being and a brilliant director. It's actually a fantastic role. It was like one scene that was killer and I hope I nailed it."
300 comes out from Warner Bros. in 2007.
