Interview Questions for XIII Voice Talent: Eve
Q1: How much time did you spend working on XIII, both preparing and recording?
I really didnít know what to expect going into the recording session because Iíve never done anything like this. I thought I would come in do some lines and some sound effects, but I was surprised at the length and depth of XIIIís script. XIIIís story is extremely captivating -- no different to any movie script Iíve worked on. Probably the hardest part was trying to time my lines to synch up with the character on screen.
Q2: What was the motivation for your character in XIII?
Major Jones is strong, confident, sheís cute. She has an vulnerability when it comes to XIII, which is a good side to see some times. But usually sheís tough and strong and you know not to play with her. She can hold her own. She also saves XIII a number of times in the game, I like that about her.
Q3: Tell me how you identify with a strong woman whoís in the military whoís kicking ass against the guys?
I guess in my life itís that way too. Iím the only female of Rough Riders, which are a million guys. Iím always around a bunch of guys when Iím with them. Thatís just the way it is. Being in the business, itís a male dominated business, so as a female you have to come in and pretty much kick ass, you have to let people know Iím about my business and thatís it. There will be no games.
Q4: Did you get to play much of XIII? What did you think?
I havenít played XIII too much, just what I saw during the recording session. Iíve seen most of my parts in the game, and it looks really exciting with a lot of action. I am definitely interested to see how everything gets pieced together, I am not sure how the story ends because Ubi Soft didnít tell me, so it will be a nice surprise when I play the game.
I canít wait, I canít wait to play it myself because I want to hear myself. And Iím definitely going to recommend it to a lot of people, so go get the game!
Q5: With XIII and your recent and future film/TV projects, youíre clearly focusing more on your acting career than your music. Do you see yourself putting more emphasis on music again soon?
I actually came into acting by accident, but it was something I did with music all the time Ė performing is performing. Being involved in Barbershop and XxX opened a lot of doors for me. I am doing a TV series with UPN this Fall and shooting another movie, The Woodsman, with Kevin Bacon. I like acting, but music will always be my first passion, you will be seeing another release soon enough.
