Gina Carano Featured in LA Times and NY Times

Posted by: Jen on January 2, 2012

Gina Carano appeared in both the NY Times and LA Times.  There was some pretty interesting stuff revealed in the in depth articles.  It follows Gina’s story from her pre MMA days to what led her to acting in a movie with Steven Soderbergh.

This time the Academy Award-winning director reimagines the spy genre within the confines of physical realism. Rather than employ movie technology audiences have grown accustomed to — stunt doubles, quick film cuts, wire work — Soderbergh opted to approach the genre with a real-life fighter as his lead and a real-life elite soldier as his technical adviser. He then surrounded Carano with such actors as Michael Fassbender, Michael Douglas and Ewan McGregor.
