"The director, Rob Cohen, created this whole new character. I mean, it is the wife of Brendan Fraser that Rachel played, but there's this twist to it, so you get that she was a different character from me, so if Rachel was Audrey Hepburn in it, I'm KATHERINE Hepburn. Here she's tougher, intellectual, and sassy, so it was really fun. I got to train in Japanese sword fighting, got to shoot Winchesters and pistols, to work on ropes hanging off of chandeliers, work in China for two months, and bring my son. It was an amazing experience."
