Los Angeles, May 30 (IANS) Actress Olivia Munn says she was not convinced she was suited to do action roles until she starred in "X-Men: Apocalypse".
The 37-year-old starred as Psylocke in the 2016 superhero film, and Munn said the experience has given her a thirst for more action roles, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
"I really didn't realise how much I loved doing it until I actually was training for 'X-Men'," Munn told Slash Films, when asked what attracts her to do action parts.
She added: "When I signed on for 'X-Men', I wasn't sure if I wanted to do it and I was talking to (screenwriter) Simon Kinberg, and he was like, 'This is the introduction of the character, so it's going to be a smaller part and for this movie...'
"And I said, 'Well, that's cool as long as you could just have a fight scene'. And to me, I grew up loving her so I know that they really didn't do her justice the first time that she was introduced. And I'd watched it and I was like, 'This is stupid'. The first time I saw it, I thought, 'You have to give her more.'"
However, Munn said that she did not initially appreciate just how much hard work was needed to star in an action film.
