Eva Green plays warrior in `300: Rise of an Empire`

Los Angeles: Actress Eva Green, who plays a warrior in Noam Murro`s ‘300: Rise of an Empire’, says her character is very gusty.

The ‘Casino Royale’ star plays feisty warrior Artemisia in the follow-up of the 2007 hit movie ‘300’. She plays a strong woman who helps Persian king Xerxes` army to war.

"She has some ba**s, that`s for sure. It`s my first action movie. Artemisia`s like an Amazon. She`s a very, very strong woman," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Green as saying.

The film has Rodrigo Santoro reprising his role as the powerful Xerxes.

Green is set to play another fiery character in ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’, and she reveals she took up an intense gym regime to prepare for the part.

"I had to work out like hell. I looked like G.I. Jane," she added.
