Washington: Carla Gugino has admitted that she garnered quite a bit of satisfaction stepping into the shoes of an X-rated sensation in Sebastian Gutierrez’s ‘Elektra Luxx’.

‘Elektra Luxx’ tells the story of a retired porn star attempting to come to terms with her now “normal” life as a sex-education instructor at her local community center and impending motherhood.

“Playing this porn star was fantastic; I fell in love with this character Elektra Luxx. We also get to meet her sister Cecilia in this film and I’ve always been fascinated by two people that are raised in the same way but go in two completely different directions,” Fox News quoted Luxx as saying.

“I got to work with such an incredible group of women. I think I would be a little hesitant to play this kind of character if I didn’t trust implicitly the filmmakers vision and Sebastian (the director) loves women and has that European sensibility so we all felt comfortable jumping into it,” she added.
