Hela (Cate Blanchett)
Cate Blanchett has played a variety of roles over the last quarter century, ranging from Queen Elizabeth I in “Elizabeth” to Galadriel in “The Lord of the Rings” movies. No role has presented her with as unique a challenge as playing Hela, Thor’s destructive sister. And, she loved every moment of it.
“The chance to finally, in my deep middle age, to get fit, and to wear that much Lycra was really exciting for me,” Blanchett says.
The Oscar-winning Aussie discovered what all actors face when they become part of the Marvel Comics movie universe. There’s not only the task of delivering lines and making them sound earnest in the middle of a world usually being torn apart, but it’s also imperative to be able to handle the physicality of the job.
Add that Blanchett was taking on a role that has a deep mythology in the comic books. She knew the fans would be watching to see if she strayed too far away from the way the character has been portrayed in print.
Blanchett decided the key was to making Hela look as good as possible, and that started with an examination of the comic books. Then she worked with the trainer who helped Chris Hemsworth get his Thor body to get as fit as possible. She also banked heavily on her stunt double, Zoe Bell, to help her fill in where she was having troubles playing the role.
“When I started, I had to manifest weapons and I had to throw them. I could see Taika’s disappointment as I threw it,” Blanchett says. “I had to stop making the noises, because I’d go, ’Ha.’ And so I had to close my mouth.
“Eventually Zoe suggested that I put some sugar packets in my hand so at least I could throw something and be real. So I moved from the humiliating to the exhilarating in a matter of five days.”
From an interview with Karl Urban (Skurge):
The women in this film are awesome and were fighting against everything, what does that mean for you? Since this is a movie that younger people are watching, is that important for you? Cate and Tessa?
It’s imperative. I think it would have been a boring movie without them. Cate and Tessa are so wonderful in this film. They are my favorite parts of the movie. I love seeing Tessa’s swagger. I love the journey of her character from the dark place that she was in to redemption, to reclaiming herself with her identity. I thought it was a a strong, compelling journey. Then I had such such a wonderful time working with Cate Blanchett. I mean, to be perfectly honest, she was the reason I decided to do this movie – it was the opportunity to work with Cate Blanchett. I read that script and saw that ninety percent of my material was with her. I was like ‘where do I sign up? How much do I pay you?’
