Re: Antje Traue IS Faora in The Man of Steel - Part 2
People often forget that actors are not necessarily fans of the subject matter for which they find themselves working in. Sure they'll pay lip service to the fans when it comes to promoting the film but often the reality is that an actor is primarily a 'hired gun' brought in to bring the character to life on screen. Once principal photography is wrapped they move on. Genre film fans in particular are often highly judgmental of actors that don't display an encyclopedic knowledge of their characters background. They lose sight of the fact that more often as not the role/story is just a job to an actor.
It rather reminds of Summer Glau bringing many fans of The Terminator franchise crashing back to Earth when she stated that she had never seen any of the Terminator films despite playing one on The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
