Kate Beckinsale, from romantic dramas to action movies
In her early days, Kate Beckinsale was mainly involved in romantic comedies or dramas. She was for example in the foreground of the TV movie Emma (1996), adaptation of the eponymous novel by Jane Austen. And after several European productions, it is in the United States that the Briton is truly revealed with The Last Days of Disco (1998) with Chloë Sevigny, Bangkok, one way (1999) alongside Claire Danes, or even Love in New York (2001) with John Cusack, without forgetting Pearl Harbor (2001) by Michael Bay.
But in the early 2000s, the actress completely changed her genre and became an action girl with Underworld (2003). A vampire role in a fairly good B series that will build up a solid fan base. From then on, Kate Beckinsale sees herself associated with this role of Selene that she will resume in four other films. In the following years, she alternated between muscular productions and thrillers before returning recently to more romantic films. So, five years later Underworld: Blood Wars, she will take out the guns again for the needs of Jolt. At almost fifty years old, Kate Beckinsale therefore seems to still have some under the trigger.
