In Avatar 2, Sigourney Weaver Says She ‘brought Some Awkwardness’ to the Role of a 14-year-old Girl!

Kiri, a young girl of 14 years old, will be played by Sigourney Weaver in the long-awaited sequel Avatar: The Way of Water, directed by James Cameron.

After the release of fresh footage toward the end of August, the highly anticipated impending science fiction film, which is a sequel to James Cameron’s first Avatar from 2009, has already been acclaimed as “the most outrageously complicated movie ever made.”

Avatar 2 will follow Avatar. The new film will focus on the lives of Jake and Neytiri Sully as they leave their home and travel with their children to explore different regions of Pandora.

The film will star Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldaña, who will reprise their roles as Jake and Neytiri Sully, respectively. Sigourney Weaver, who is now 73 years old and whose original character Doctora Grace Augustine passed away in the first film, recently gave an interview with Vanity Fair in which she discussed her new role as Kiri, the Sully family’s adopted young daughter.

When the Oscar-nominated actor was asked about the conversations she had with Cameron when he approached her about playing the role of a 14-year-old girl, she joked and said, “I don’t think John Wayne was asked to play a 14-year-old, may I just say.”

Cameron had approached the Oscar-nominated actor about playing the role. “I had a very early chat with Jim [director Cameron] about this, and he was really already dedicated to this kind of character, but who she was, what she was about was something we talked about at the beginning,” she revealed.

I had a very early conversation with Jim [director Cameron] about this. Weaver continued her explanation by saying that when she has seen the first images of Kiri, she thought “she looked so exquisite, every hair in place.”

I responded to him by saying, “Jim, that is not how you feel about yourself when you are a thirteen or fourteen-year-old girl.” I gathered the designers or the drawers, and all I did was bring some difficulty to the situation.

She went on to say, “That’s what he ended up calling it today, ‘awkward Kiri,’ as opposed to ‘perfect Kiri.'” Weaver continued by saying that “for better or worse, my awkward, self-conscious teenager was able to flow right into Kiri, and I had to work in a completely different way, which is kind of letting it flow into me.”

“I was this tall when I was 11, so I was just like a big spider moving around, knocking things over,” she said. She remarked, “I don’t know that any of us are very far removed from our adolescent moment since it certainly stands out in bold relief for a lot of people.”

“I don’t know that any of us is very far removed from our adolescent moment.” Jim encouraged me and told me, ‘You can do this.’ I’m not sure how far removed from my adolescent years I am, but Jim encouraged me anyway.

You’re so immature. This is relevant to your age regardless,’ she said.
