Anthony Wong Talks 'Matrix Reloaded'

Anthony Wong spoke to SMH about his role as 'Ghost' in the upcoming Matrix Reloaded.

The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions were also shot largely in Sydney at a combined cost of $US300 million. In the former, released next month, the machines have discovered the location of Zion, the last human city, leaving Keanu Reeves and co-stars 72 hours to track down a shady saviour called The Keymaker.

Wong's character is introduced in the second film, has a larger role in the third, and a lead role in the video game.

"The game is not just a cheap spin-off," he said. "The Wachowski brothers wrote and directed one hour of extra footage for it. I call it The Matrix 2B. If you think of the whole story as a house, then the movie follows what goes on between Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss in the bedroom, and the game is about what happens between me and Jada Pinkett Smith in the living room."

Wong praised the Wachowski brothers for casting people from all over the world.

Wong is delighted to be involved, especially after auditioning unsuccessfully for the part of Tank in the original film, a role which went to Marcus Chong.

"Now I just want to get my own action figure. Then I'll know I've made it."
