Celebrated Hollywood Actress Charlize Theron said she is honoured to portray the role of first female antihero in Fast and Furious series. The actress plays the character of a hacker named as Cipher in the upcoming Fast and Furious 8.
Fast and Furious 8 is already studded with stars like Dwayne Johnson, Kurt Russell, Helen Mirren, Vin Diesel, Jason Statham, Scott Eastwood, Chris Ludacris Bridges and Charlize Theron.
Theron says she is playing a pivotal role in this film and her role is quite interesting here in the context of the story.
"What a great place to find yourself in; to not only be offered a great role in one of the greatest franchises ever, but to be the first female villain... That's a real honor," Charlize Theron stated.
"Cipher is the real deal, too. At her core she is completely this rapacious, and that says a lot about a character. As an actor, there is something great about witnessing a character just coming in and taking what she wants..." Added Theron
"And doing it in a way that's unexpected," she explained further.
Fast and Furious 8 is directed by filmmaker F. Gary Gray and produced by One Race Films, Original Film and Perfect World Pictures.
The film is scheduled to release on April 14 in India.
