I do have to ask because this is Arnold Schwarzeneggers first starring role in such a long time and hes such a legend in the genre. When you first met him or when you first saw him step out on set what was the first thing that ran through your mind?

Im looking at the guy thinking, Oh geez, I wont say anything stupid, Ill shake his hand. Is he a hugger? Because Im a hugger! [laughs] And he walked right up to me and said that he was happy to meet me and that hes excited and he was honest about it! That was the thing, hes a very genuine guy from one spectrum to the next. If he doesnt like something you know about it, if he likes it you know about it. Everything he does and says comes from his heart and he almost has a childlike innocence sometimes that I really enjoy and when you see people who were your idols growing up and you see that theyre good people, but theyre also humanthat means a lot to me because it shows me that people who have done this for a very long time are still very respectful, still very much an equal with everyone else, not above them, and the way he is just made me go, Thats the way Im going to be.

Just because I'm a huge nerd, I know that you guys have wrapped on Thor: The Dark World, so Im curious what were going to see from Lady Sif this next time around. How has she evolved?

Physically she has a more feminine look in this film. You get to see her in a few different, new costumes. And you also get to see her be a bit more vulnerable. And you get to see her be a little bit more of a woman too! We do explore the Thor-Sif relationship a little bit.

In the romantic sense

On her side, mostly. But its neat. Its more like an admiration and love for somebody that shes grown up with and wants to protect, and thats her thing. Sif cares about the people she loves and shed do anything for them. And you see her do that in this movie.

Did you get a chance to work with Christopher Eccleston as Malekith at all?

I cant answer that! I will get shot.

Aw, man! I almost just did, and I was like, I cant answer that. I will get in so much trouble. But yeah, we have a lot of good people in this movie. It was a lot of fun.
