Famous for her parts in Avatar and the Fast & Furious films, Michelle Rodriguez recently told Vanity Fair that she declined the chance to return to her Avatar role for the sequels. She said that since Trudy Chacon perished a martyr’s death in the first film, she did not want her character to be brought back to life. Rodriguez added that she was done playing revived characters after previous roles. The performer continued by discussing the current tendency of bringing back dead characters in movies. She theorized that directors might be at a loss for what to do with a female character to whom no male character is emotionally connected, and thus might cut her off or resurrect her. Rodriguez was thrilled to collaborate with Academy Award–winning filmmaker James Cameron when she was chosen in Avatar in 2007. But now she’s passed up an opportunity to join one of Hollywood’s most enduring brands. With a global total of $2.9 billion, the first Avatar picture is the highest-grossing film of all time. Rodriguez has been working on other projects despite his rejection of the Avatar sequels. She has a leading role in the recently debuted and critically acclaimed Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves. She will also be featured in Fast X, the upcoming film in the Fast & Furious series. Proof positive that Michelle Rodriguez is a gifted actor who will refuse roles that don’t satisfy her artistic goals. Her refusal to accept the part demonstrates that she values her creative independence and is ready to take on challenging tasks.
