Excerpt from DAMAN 's Exclusive Feature : Katheryn Winnick Hollywood’s Action Diva

published on-line April 1, 2015

DA: If we’re not mistaken, you’ve just wrapped up filming for “geostorm”, right? can you give us a brief outline of what the movie’s going to be about?

KW: Dean Devlin is the director, and it’s a Warner Brother’s film, one of those big action adventure movies that take place here and in outer space. I’m really excited about it because we have a phenomenal cast. I play the ex-wife of Gerard Butler, who is absolutely fantastic. Andy Garcia, Jim Sturgess, Ed Harris and Abbie Cornish are also in the movie, so there’s a good group of people, and I’m really excited for you to see it.

DA: Going by what’s been released so far, some people think that “geostorm” is a scifi adventure, some think that it’s a disaster movie set in space, while others speculate that it will also be a conspiracy thriller. which description do you think would best fit the movie?

KW: Well you’re going to have to wait and see! It’s pretty much all of the above, and that’s what makes it a great story.

DA: You were added to the cast about a month before principal photography on the film began. how did you end up getting the role?

KW: I read the script about a year ago, but I’ve been busy shooting “Vikings” in Ireland. I remember thinking that this was a really fun project, and I would love to be a part of it. I got a call from my agent saying that there was interest, so I did a self-tape while in Ireland. Dean Devlin and his wife recognized me from my work in “Vikings,” so they asked me to be a part of the movie. Once I finished shooting the last episode of “Vikings,” I went straight to New Orleans to film [“Geostorm”].

DA: Some scenes for “Geostorm” were filmed at an actual NASA facility. How was it like filming with actual space technology?

KW: I love shooting in NASA. I was really excited to see where the spaceships are being built. Security is really strict and it is super tough to get into the NASA facility, but I am lucky enough to be an American citizen as well as Canadian, so I was able to go through clearance much faster than other actors. Of course, we shot in a different part of NASA where it’s more of a production studio with the set we built and everything, so we didn’t really get a chance to hang out with the astronauts, if that’s what you’re asking.
