With the 5th installment of the Underworld series opening in Dec, we thought we’d take a look at some interesting facts you didn’t know about the franchise and the gorgeous Kate Beckinsale who by the way is newly single…..just saying.
She loves to read.
Beckinsale said in an interview that she started to love reading at a young age because she was an only child and her mother encouraged her to spend her free time reading books. She has also passed the passion for the printed word to her daughter.
Nothing like an intelligent woman if you ask us.
She’s not athletic
She actually finds it funny that she stars in action flicks and does stunts because she was never the type to get into physical activities.
Who would have thought. I mean she works that leather outfit so well when she’s jumping past bullets and wielding swords.
The first movie was considered a risk.
Beckinsale recently said in an interview that the first movie would probably never be made in the current day because it wasn’t a comic book or a reboot of any sorts and with a female lead. A lot of people actually forget that this concept was a total original idea.
Someone else is acting as Michael Corvin
The biggest surprise to come out the new film is that Scott Speedman, who has played the Lycan/Vampire hybrid Michael Corvin in Underworld and its sequel Underworld: Evolution will not reprise his role and will be replaced by Trent Garrett.
I think the producers might have over looked that Corvin is a fan favourite and to many of us, Speedman is Michael Corvin.
It will be hard to accept but we will eventually.
Underworld Blood Wars opens in cinemas 1 Dec
