Eva Green has revealed that her character in '300: Rise of an Empire' has "balls" and isn't afraid to go to war

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.

300: Rise of an Empire

  • 3 stars

  • Directed by: Noam Murro
  • Cast: Eva Green, Rodrigo Santoro, Sullivan Stapleton
  • UK release: 7 March 2014

Greek general Themistokles (Stapleton) goes head-to-head – and body-part-to-body-part – with vampish naval commander Artemisia (Green), as those pesky Persians return for another whupping. Much more fun than its predecessor 300, the action of which it cleverly parallels, but the real draw is Green's gloriously bonkers…
