Emma Stone the Better half of

The Amazing Spider-man

The trademark of this girl is her deep sultry voice. Known as red-head in the film fraternity, she started her career with film Superbad. Andrew Garfield’s real life heart stopper Emma Stone will be starring opposite him in the Sony Picture’s film “THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN”!

Stone was initially dubious about accepting the role of Gwen. She agrees she has read the Marvel comics series of the spider-man and finds it an amazing read yet it seemed to be a challenge initially considering the massive success of the previous films. However, the doubts receded as soon as she gave her auditions. And with the doubts, receded her fears and pressures of working in the film. She says, “I know that the audience might not be satisfied but if I was the choice of the director then he must have put in some thought before he chose me to play the character of Gwen!”

The sparks of the real life love will sure be visible onscreen as well. Talking about the emotional synchronization with the character of Peter Parker, Emma says, “Some things are supposed to be felt, I cannot spell how the emotional harmony is between Gwen and Peter! Gwen loves Peter Parker not because he is ‘The Spider-man’. Gwen comes from a family background where she fears that her father might die any minute. She gets a much deserved emotional support and warmth from Peter.”

So will we see Emma butt kicking goons in the film? She says, “There wasn’t a major amount of stunt work for me. I’ve always thought that if Gwen needed to kick some ass, it wouldn’t make a ton of sense to me because she’s pretty focused on her studies. She’s an editor and she’s focused on academia, we don’t ever really see her getting in shape. That would have been an interesting character element, but there’s even a part where I had to hit someone with something and I made sure she looked like she did not know what she was doing, that she’d never hit anyone before. My version of Gwen, like me, wouldn’t know how to go about really kicking someone’s ass. She’s a policeman’s daughter who’s been told to be responsible and to avoid that side of the world.”

Films like Spider-man are memorable not just for the audience but become engrained on the brains cells of the actors as well. The memorable moment of playing Gwen for Stone had been the one where she is swinging in the air and there is music going on in the background. “I feared that I might fall off but the music was such a delight to ears that I survived the scene!” she says.

Does she feel jittery now that the film is about to release? Emma says, “The entire film is like a mission and we, actors, are a small part of it, however, we also play the role of taking this mission forward. And I hope when the audience comes to see the film they like it and leave the theatre smiling!”

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN of Sony Pictures releases in 3D all over India on 29th June, a week ahead of USA.
