Monica Belluci has become one of the best international crossover stars in movies. After making her debut in 1991, she’s had more than three decades and more than 80 books to her name. Dracula was one of her first roles. She played one of the brides of the vampire in 1992. (Gary Oldman). She also played Persephone in the Matrix movies and Clive Owen in the Shoot ‘Em Up movie (2007). It was a great opportunity for the actress to work on Martin Campbell’s Memory and play a corporate villain. It’s a change from the roles she usually plays.
She said she wanted to work with Martin Campbell because he’s someone she admires a lot. “When he’s behind the camera, he knows how to make people nervous. He also gets to work with Liam Neeson, who is an amazing actor and a beautiful person. When I worked with him, it was really lovely. Davana Sealman was a new character for me. They asked her lawyer for help killing the witnesses who could show that our son is a sexual deviant. This woman is the CEO of a hedge fund that invests in a lot of different businesses. Because she wants to protect her son and herself, and her business, she doesn’t want this to happen. So, she’s said to be a natural sociopath, smart, charming, and cold and manipulative at the same time.”
Memory follows Alex Lewis (Neeson), an expert assassin who has a good reputation for being very quiet and careful. Into a moral mess, Alex refuses to do a job that goes against his code. He must quickly find and kill the people who hired him before they and the FBI agent Vincent Serra (Guy Pearce) find him first. As his memory starts to fail, Alex has to question everything he does, which makes the line between right and wrong blur.
When it came to Davana, Bellucci wanted the audience to be able to understand why she did what she did and how she was able to change herself to play the part. “In some ways, she’s a monster; in others, she’s a person, and playing this double role was what I was interested in. With this role, I wanted to break out of the mold I’ve been in many times in my life. So I put on some weight, and the makeup helped me become a completely different person. Also, as we get older, we can think of new ways to do things. The play I’m in now is called “Maria Callas: Letters and Memoirs.” When you get older, it’s easier to see how Maria Callas, who was a great singer and a diva at the same time, was also a woman who had a heart of pure gold. She died because of sadness. She died because her heart was broken. It’s easy to see that actresses can work for a long time these days. Europe has all of the great actresses like Isabella Baer and Natalie Baye. They all had very long careers. They all lived in Europe.”
