Eva Green Talks '300: Battle of Artemisia' Role and we have the details!
MTV News recently caught up with Eva Green who is set to star in the 300 prequel/spin off, 300 battle of Artemisia.... She was asked about her character who is actually based on a woman - not a goddess - who actually lived, and kicked some serious butt.
She said, "Oh yeah, I'm playing Artemisia. She really existed actually....She was commander on a boat, of a whole Armada."
She went on to elaborate on the character by saying, "She's a very ballsy character, she's almost like a man, so that's fun....It's my first action film, it's going to be a challenge, [there will be] lots of training."
Some research on artmesia conducted by MTV news pointed to the fact that Artemisia was indeed pretty awesome... The Persian Queen, who came to power and ruled over Ionia after her husband's death, played a key component in the Battle of Salamis (which has apparently been renamed the "Battle of Artemisia" for the film's purposes) in that she advised Xerxes to launch a land-sea offensive against the Greeks. Although Xerxes made the ill-advised decision to go against her suggestions, he listened to her when she suggested the fleet's retreat after their defeat at Salamis.
