Total Recall Exclusive: Kate Beckinsale on Being Bad

by at . Comments

Kate Beckinsale is used to being in fighting shape for films. What challenged her about her badass character in Total Recall was that she only had four days after Underworld: Awakening wrapped before heading to Toronto to film Total Recall.

The actress told us in our exclusive video interview that “normally you have a two to three month period where you’re doing things that psychologically prepare you. That was the big challenge in this movie... that I was flying by the seat of my pants."

Beckinsale plays Colin Farrell’s wife, who is really a government agent assigned to keep the mind-erased man in line. When he visits a Rekall center, all hell breaks loose and Beckinsale turns ghastly evil in her effort to bring in Farrell’s Douglas Quaid… or is he Hauser, a rebel leader?
