The Spirit suspense
By Joel D. Amos
The Spirit is one of the most anticipated film of the Christmas season and star Sarah Paulson tells us she leapt at the opportunity to be part of the creative genius that is 300 and Sin City mastermind Frank Miller.
As soon as the movie art appeared eight months prior to The Spirit’s release, a fervor to know more about Miller’s latest vision engulfed pop culture.
Paulson plays a pumped up Ellen Dolan, who in the graphic novel was more feminine and less femme fatale.
“In the film, Ellen’s a doctor,” Paulson proudly says. “There’s not a single woman in The Spirit stranded on a rooftop waiting for someone to rescue her. They’re too strong and intelligent.”
SheKnows: With The Spirit, there is so much excitement about this film, that frankly began once it was announced. From where you’re sitting on the eve of The Spirit coming out, is it a more of a nervous time or exciting?
Sarah Paulson: I feel a lot of things. Mostly fear that no one’s going to go (laughs). Because, I think the movie is really good and totally unique. It’s a big opportunity for me to be in this movie and I just hope that people go see it. I’m not dancing around thinking it’s all done, my career’s taking off! I’ve done this for so long and have had opportunities like this, where things didn’t turn out the way you hoped. I’ve been disappointed. So, I’m hopeful, but I’m cautious.
