Nebula vs Gamora...
In an interview with MTV, Karen Gillan spoke about her fight scene as Nebula against Gamora (Zoe Saldana) in Guardians of the Galaxy. Here are highlights:
On having faith in the film: "I always had total faith in the project, because the people who are making it are so brilliant, and have a long history of great films. So I knew it was in great hands. I just think it's a new direction for Marvel, it's really, really funny. It's not taking itself seriously at all. It's tongue in cheek. And just to see people be excited about that new tone is cool."
On Nebula vs Gamora: "Yeah, there's a big girlie fight sequence, but it's not that girlie. They made sure there weren't any nice pirouettes or anything like that. She's really experienced in the physical stuff, she was a ballerina. She's really amazing at all of that stuff. She barely required any rehearsal, she was like, 'I can do this.' I required two months of rehearsals every day that I wasn't shooting, because I looked like spaghetti when I started."
On how important the fight is: "This is the integral one for my character, because it's not just a physical battle. Their relationship goes very deep, and there's a huge history between them. So there's a lot more to it than just the physical."
