'Predators' star 'rose to the challenge'

By
Predator 2
Alice Braga has revealed that she rose to the challenge of being an action hero while filming Predators.

According to ScifiWire, the actress did not initially believe that she had the fortitude to play a "bad-ass sniper chick".

"I never thought about [being an action star]," Braga said. "I think it was a challenge that came up. I'm a small, short girl, not really tall. I never thought about myself running around and punching and shooting.

"In Predators I'm a sniper, and truly my gun was the heaviest gun on set. It's 14 pounds. Everyone is with a knife, with a pistol, and I'm with a rifle, and I'm carrying that all through the film. I'm like, 'Why am I carrying this? Seriously, why am I carrying this?!"

The film centres on a band of humans who find themselves trapped on the Predator homeworld.

The movie stars Topher Grace, Danny Trejo and Laurenence Fishburne. It is produced by Robert Rodriguez.
