Q: Congratulations on a fabulous performance. Your character's
sense of conviction reaches new heights in this film. Can you
talk a little bit about how she's evolved?
A: Thanks. Her conviction in the man that she loves intensifies
and she ends up standing up for it completely.
Q: How has that relationship, the love between Neo and Trinity,
A: I think in the second film it really starts to evolve in
a big way and in the third it evolves to the deepest place that
it can. Their partnership is complete. I love the relationship
between the two of them. I don't really remember seeing such a
relationship in an action film where they are that close with
one another. It's so real.
Q: A lot of screen time is given to the characters and their
relationships. In addition to all of that, you have a lot of amazing
fight sequences and action sequences. Can you describe the Hell's
Club scene where we see you do some really nifty moves?
A: That was fun to shoot. It reminded me a lot of the government
lobby in the first Matrix film. I think it turned out really well.
Beautiful, scary and visually, very interesting.
Q: What kind of special preparation and training did you have
A: We trained like we did for the first one. We trained for
a month and shot the second and third films together. I didn't
have any kind of special preparation but the difference was I
shot for twice as long. Usually you only shoot for three or four
months. On this one, it was 8-12 months.
Q: So here we are at the last film in the Matrix trilogy.
What are your feelings at this point?
A: I really want to celebrate. It has been such a great ride
and I think people are really going to love it.
Q: How gratifying was it for you as an actress to have such
a strong female character who grows so much throughout both of
these last two films?
A: I feel very lucky to play her and to be involved in this
wonderful love story that has evolved. I get to play the whole
spectrum of her - I've completed her and it feels great.
Q: What's next in your career? You've done many different
types of films before and after the Matrix...
A: As a new mother, that is what I am concentrating on now.
