    Beckinsale talks Underworld

    Kate Beckinsale, who plays a vampire in the upcoming supernatural film Underworld, told SCI FI Wire that the movie is an action thriller for which she had to train hard. "Kind of a serious, scary, supernatural thing," she said in an interview. Beckinsale stars with Scott Speedman in a story about the ancient war between bloodsuckers and werewolves.

    "I had three months of training," Beckinsale said. "I did gymnastics and wire work and yoga and guns and combat and fighting. It was really scary, because ... [I] was never really into running around that much. But I loved it, and I found out I was actually [good]. I found the gymnastics part of it quite difficult. I get dizzy quite easily. But I was really uncannily good with a gun, which I would never have known otherwise."

    But the British actress added that one of the hardest parts of making the movie was shooting it in Hungary. "Four months in Budapest, ... with a short, gloomy, dark break in London for Christmas," she said. "So I did find by the end of it, I started to feel a bit oppressed just from the gray and the cold." Underworld opens Sept. 19.
