Independent Films, Talk Shows, Movie Reviews, Interviews
Meeting Eric Bana for a second time was a delight! I interviewed the actor for 2009’s “Star Trek” and now, I’m blessed to sit with him again for “Hanna” where he plays the title character’s father figure.
In this interview, we talked about:
Why did he jump on board for the movie?
What did he think when director Joe Wright told him that the film will be told with a fairy tale structure?
Working with Saoirse Ronan
First-time working with fellow Aussie, Cate Blanchett
Growing up as a moral story of “Hanna” – And I told him I need a daddy like him!

Raised by her father, an ex-CIA man, in the wilds of Finland, Hanna's upbringing and training have been one and the same, all geared to making her the perfect assassin. The turning point in her adolescence is a sharp one; sent into the world by her father on a mission, Hanna journeys stealthily across Europe while eluding agents dispatched after her by a ruthless intelligence operative with secrets of her own. As she nears her ultimate target, Hanna faces startling revelations about her existence and unexpected questions about her humanity.
