Recently, publisher Titan Books released the book “Black Widow: The Official Movie Special Book” and the material includes interviews with some of the cast.
In one of those interviews, Rachel Weisz gave some details about her character, Melina Vostokoff, and ended up delivering SPOILERS!
“Melina was trained in the red room. I am one of the black widows. I was taken from my parents when I was little and handed over to Dreykov (Ray Winstone), the director of the red room. He is the mastermind behind the training that all widows go through. I think Melina got attached to him after awhile … sure, she was brainwashed by him. She believes in his cause, that he has good intentions and that he does good in the world.
She also opened up about how Melina and Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) relationship came about.
“At the start of the film, I am a Russian spy posing as an American mother. I pretend little Natasha and little Yelena (Florence Pugh) are my children and Alexei (David Harbor) is my husband.
“It was wonderful to play Melina because I understand her. After the first scenes, we move on to 20 years later and she lives alone, in a very deserted place, raising pigs … I had never interacted with pigs before, so I thought it was great. My character goes through a few good ones, she never stops reading and it was very exciting.
Apparently, Melina will be a dangerous character, and her loyalty to Dreykov makes her an unstable and unreliable woman, and certainly someone with a lot of hidden secrets.
Recalling that the premiere of ‘Black Widow’ remains scheduled for April 29, 2021 in national cinemas.
