Hayley Atwell Talks Captain America, Going to the Movies with Chris Evans

British lass Hayley Atwell, recently cast as Peggy Carter in Joe Johnston’s upcoming “Captain America: The First Avenger” movie, recently gave a brief backstage interview to LeicesterSquareTV. Most of the three minutes-plus segment is spent on Atwell’s other projects, including her recent role in the James Caviezel remake of “The Prisoner”, but they eventually get into “Captain America” towards at the 2:20 mark.

She talks about training six days a week for the role, going to see “Iron Man 2″ with Chris Evans and Sebastian Stan (Steve Rogers and Bucky, respectively), and then confirms that Tommy Lee Jones is also in the movie. Not only that, but Jones’s character has a scene with her Peggy Carter. Nothing too revealing, but the lass has a nice energy about her, and makes me wonder how she’ll pull off the kick ass role that’s required. But hey, that’s why they call it acting, right?

“Captain America” starts shooting in London in July.

    Thanks for posting the clip!
    I agree about her energy; I think that for aproject such as Captain America this is as necessary to help sell it as having big name actors on board. I would guess that Tommy Lee Jones will be playing the German scientist that developed the Super Soldier formula – just kidding: I expect him to be playing the part of the General in cvharge of overseeing the Super Soldier program.
