Gina Carano Talks DEADPOOL And Her Character's Fight With Colossus

Gina Carano plays a character named Angel Dust in 20th Century Fox's Deadpool. Though she doesn't turn green, her character possesses strength that's fueled by her rage, making her the perfect opponent to take on the mighty X-Men giant, Colossus, played by Andre Tricoteux.

MMA fighter turned actress Gina Carano plays the powerhouse mutant Angel Dust in Ryan Reynold's upcoming Deadpool movie for 20th Century Fox.  While filming on location in Vancouver, ScreenRant caught up with the Haywire and Fast & Furious 6  actress to discuss her role in the Tim Miller directed superhero film.  On the looking to research her character before filming, Carano stated that she was surprised to find that there wasn't a whole lot out there.  "[Angel Dust] is… well, when I talked to Tim [Miller] about getting the job, I did a little bit of research and there wasn’t as much on this character, so it gave me some room to play with it. So this is actually my first look (talking about her current, normal hair style). My second look is much more extreme. It’s, I don’t know, a year to five years after, and Mohawk with the braids on the side. So she’s very fashion forward.  What she’s known for is having extreme adrenaline issues. Which, I don’t know. Have you looked up Angel Dust before? It’s kinda like a PCP and people kind of rage on it. I think that’s very fitting for my character. She’s got extreme strength and adrenaline."


It appears that like Marvel's Hulk, her character's super-strength is fueled by her rage and that puts her in a bee line for an onscreen confrontation with Colossus.  "[The more angry she get, the] More pissed off, yeah. [laughs] I think that me and Ed [Skrein], he actually took me to my first comic book store when I got here. We were going over our characters. It’s a really beautiful, I think, relationship. My character trusts Ajax with everything. She pretty much only really responds to him. He was created a certain way to be the way he is. In our backstory, he kinda created me and showed me everything. And I do the same thing to everyone else.  [Ajax gives Angel Dust her powers.]  Yeah. That’s our backstory. In our relationship, he’s everything. He’s the one that taught me."

As far as her character's confrontation with Colossus, Carano stated, " It’s a lot different than most of the fight scenes and the physicality that I’ve had before. I’ve never done anything with CGI, let alone I’ve never done anything with a 6’8” man as far as physicality goes. And then, on top of that he wears these big, massive boots. So it makes him taller...Andre [Tricoteux], the guy that plays Colossus, has just been… he’s the biggest sweetheart. He is Colossus to me... At some point I actually crawl on top of him and he’s standing up. So I’m like 8, 9 feet in the air just looking down at the world like, “This is what your life is like normally! This is interesting. Different perspective!”
