" I never approached Rita as a female action character, I just saw her as this lethal powerhouse who was pretty much the toughest person I’ve come across. It was exciting to approach her in that way, you know? She wasn’t this kind of butch woman, she had gotten to where she was by being savvy and intelligent and determined, and I think that’s what excited me – the spirit she had, the chutzpah she had (laughs), and courage she had. She’s an incredibly courageous character. " - Emily Blunt on Rita Vrataski
