Kelly Hu Talks Deathstrike In X-Men 2

Kelly Hu has been speaking with Fred Topal at the Daredevil premiere where was able to ask her some questions about her role as Deathstrike in X-Men 2: X2.

For those who don't know the comic, who is Deathstrike?
She's really hot. She's sort of the more advanced slicker faster sharper version of Hugh Jackman's character.

Do you do the most stunts of all the female actors?
Probably. More than any man too, I think.

What's the biggest stunt you do?
I have an awesome, awesome fight with Hugh Jackman. It's great.

What's the hardest part of being an action heroine or villain?
I think the most important stuff, it's so hard to train for wirework because it's not like you can get up on wires every day and stuff. I think the most important thing to do is just stay limber and make sure you don't eat before you have to put on the harness. That really helps.

You have to be in a certain physical shape to do the wires?
It wasn't even so much about being fit. It was just that the harnesses were so tight, when you back flipped upside down, sometimes the tuna sandwich ends up coming back up again.

If you could have your own real life superpower, what would you like to have?
I've said this before. I think it would be really cool to have X-ray vision so you could just see through people's clothing. You could know what you're getting before. [Laughs] I've always wanted to be Wonder Woman, of course. She had the greatest costume and the invisible plane, which I thought was the coolest.
