In Oz: The Great and Powerful she plays the darkly glamorous Evanora, Wicked Witch of the East, but Rachel Weisz admits the former tomboy in her never dreamed of such a role.
“Actually a child in North London it never crossed my mind that I would never play the Wicked Witch of the East. I was kind of a tomboy climbing trees so it never crossed my mind, no.” Rachel said when asked if the role had been a childhood fantasy of hers.
Speaking on Good Morning America, Rachel added that filming had been a “completely fun, magical experience.” and that playing a “very evil character” in her first fantasy film was “extremely fun.”
Rachel, 43, revealed that she and her co-stars, Michelle Williams, Mila Kunis, James Franco and Zach Braff all did their own stunts in the film, including “learning to fly.”
But when quizzed on whether her son Henry marvels at his mother”s unconventional work tasks Rachel admitted he”s actually rather “unimpressed.”
“He”s very busy building lego in his bedroom” Rachel added “my work is very unteresting to him.”
And according to Rachel not even stepdad Daniel Craig”s stories from the James Bond set distracts Henry, 6, from “telling his own stories” at home.
