Q: What attracted you to this role?
A: The last four or five movies I've made have had very strong women in action-oriented stories. I really love playing that.

Q: Have you been doing any of your own stunts? 
A: I'm very physical, so I try to do as many of my own stunts as possible. Sometimes the guys are a little too gentle with me. They'll grab my arm and say, "I'm not grabbing you too hard, am I?" But I tell them that I'm a big girl and can handle anything they throw at me.

Q: This is your second time working with Dean? 
A: We've known each other for a few years and worked at the same time on an episode of the "Fantasy Island" series with Malcolm McDowell. We didn't have any scenes together on that show, but we got to know each other. We really have a great chemistry that I think really comes out in our scenes together in this movie.

Q: Why do you think people will be interested in this movie? 
A: I think this movie has something for everyone. It's action-packed. It's funny. It's heart-warming. It's a very well-rounded story. What more could you ask for?
