Amber Heard has joked that she’s very good at playing what she described as “the villainous woman character”. She revealed this during a recent interview on a recent group Zoom call of which The Hindu was invited to.
This was an interview she was doing for promotion of her new TV show, The Stand, which is a series based on the excellent book by Stephen King. She’s playing Nadine Cross in the show, and you know what, she’s actually really good in the role.
During her Zoom call, she did joke about how she thinks she’s actually pretty darn good at playing the villainous woman character, and I’m pretty sure there are a bunch of people out there who’ll agree with her. However, to get serious for a second, I think she’s right. She’s really suited to that sort of role.
Amber Heard is good at playing the villainous woman character
Here’s what Amber Heard had to say about being good at playing, what she described as “the villainous woman character”:
Both Nadina and Mera are totally different. What I seem to be really good at is getting an audience to believe in the villainous woman character! (laughs). Actually in Aquaman, it was a bit of a departure for me to play someone who’s not using her womanly ways to bring evil to the world. But Nadine, on the other hand, is a character coming with a lot of psychological baggage. There’s a lot of preparation for frankly, how people behave when they have been groomed. Owning her journey was understanding people who come out of cults or those who have committed horrendous crimes.
