Eva Green has "balls" in '300: Rise of an Empire'.
The 'Casino Royale' beauty plays feisty warrior Artemisia in the follow-up to 2007's hit movie '300', and has described her character - who helps lead Persian king Xerxes' army to war - as a "strong woman".
She said: "She has some balls, that's for sure. It's my first action movie. Artemisia's like an Amazon. She's a very, very strong woman."
'300: Rise of an Empire' sees Rodrigo Santoro reprise his role as the powerful Xerxes, while little-known filmmaker Noam Murro replaces '300' director Zack Snyder in the director's chair.
Green is set to play another fiery character in 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' and reveals she took up an intense gym regime to prepare for the part.
She explained to Total Film magazine: "I had to work out like hell. I looked like G.I. Jane."
'300: Rise of an Empire' is due for release in August, while 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' is set to hit the big screen later this year.
