Maggie Grace Talks About "Lockout"
Independent Films, Talk Shows, Interviews, Film Profiles
I loved meeting Maggie Grace! I’ve liked her since “Lost,” albeit briefly, and after working with Luc Besson for “Taken” (she’s also working on “Taken 2” right now), she’s back with the producer for “Lockout,” a simple sci-fi thriller about a prison in space.
In “Lockout,” Grace stars as Emilie Warnock, the President’s daughter, who suddenly finds herself trapped inside the prison. Coming to save him is Snow (played by the witty Guy Pearce), but she can save herself thank you very much! “Lockout,” co-written by Besson with the film’s directors Stephen St. Leger and James Mather, comes out on April 13th.
In this interview, Grace and I talked about:
*** Her interest in working in the film
*** Working with Guy Pearce
*** How she prepared for the role
*** Maggie Grace also teased us on “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2” where she plays the vampire Irina Denali.

On an orbiting prison 50 miles above the earth where the world's most dangerous criminals are kept asleep, the prisoners are suddenly awakened, causing a panic. Only a wrongly-convicted government agent can rescue the President's daughter from the deep space prison riot.
