As of today - still no script in hand. As I wait impatiently - I have been reading this blog written by a female marine that I have found fascinating to say the least.
Her name is Akinoluna - at least that is the name she posts under. She writes a lot about her experience in boot camp and what the hardest part was. She writes about the fact that the women were separated from the men in boot camp and about the horrible sand fleas! If you are at all interested - here is a link the her blog: http://www.akinoluna.com/
This blog has been extremely helpful so far in able for me to get "insider info" from a female who went through it.
I've also been taking in a bunch of movies with strong female leads. Here are a few that I've watched and found to be great character studies for my upcoming role:
(I think it's obvious why this movie has effected me regarding the character I'm about to play)
(This whole series is always fun to watch - but I especially love watching Milla kick zombie ass!)
(3 words... Linda Hamilton Arms. BOO-YA baby!)
I'll continue watching great movies with kick ass women, as well as doing my research.
What are some of your favorite movies w/kick-ass women? Suggestions welcome - I'm hungry for all the information I can get.
