I recall an interview where an actress said that there were no solid roles for a female lead. I began to consider that thesis. I remembered how Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio’s character opened the film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves as a strong woman with superior sword fighting skills. She even beat Robin Hood. Yet, by the end of the film, the character mysteriously became weak and helpless. I noticed the same with Sam Mathis in Broken Arrow and with other films. Thus, the challenge was on.
