Carrie-Anne Moss on her role as Claudia Wolf
Carrie-Anne Moss spoke to IFC recently on her role in Silent Hill: Revelation as antagonist Claudia Wolf. The actress tells of how she got a feel for the crazy cultist.
“It definitely was part of the conversation with the director, looking at a lot of different footage. And then ultimately this crazy wig and this crazy costume helped me go, there I was!” Moss tells IFC.
She also tells of how she was given images and video of Claudia from Silent Hill 3 rather than sitting down to play the game. “It was of what her image sort of looked like and what she felt like, and that was interesting. [But] I didn’t go in and play the game to really see, because I’m not really into that so much.” she explained.
It’s not uncommon for actors or actresses to avoid playing the game in which their character is from. It’s still slightly disappointing, though. She spent several years “jacking” into the Matrix, she could pick up the controller and play a bit of the game, right?
Still no release date for Silent Hill: Revelation 3D has been announced. Silent Hill 3 has impressive visuals, and strong characters; it will be great to see them on the silver screen even with just a fraction of their original personalities. Sure the first film didn’t follow too closely to the source material, but I enjoyed it a bit. I hope to say the same about Revelation.
