"Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" which will be shown in U.S. theatres on Friday, Aug. 22, 2014 features a lot of women including Eva Green (Ava Lord), Jessica Alba (Nancy Callahan), Rosario Dawson (Gail), Jamie Chung (Miho) and Lady Gaga (Bertha). Read on to learn more about their roles in the second installment of the Frank Miller movie.
Eva Green As Ava Lord:
Ava Lord is a femme fatale who was Dwight McCarthy's (Josh Brolin) ex-lover. She uses her beauty to manipulate men into doing what she wants. She is married to Damien Lord (Marton Csokas), a rich and powerful man, who abuses her. Ava also has a bodyguard named Manute (Dennis Haysbert). Ava meets up with Dwight in "A Dame to Kill For" and asks for his help to escape from the clutches of her husband Damien. However, Ava has other plans of her own that are far more complicated than she led Dwight to believe.
Jessica Alba As Nancy Callahan:
Those who've watched "Sin City" in 2005 will remember Nancy Callahan, the exotic dancer who works at Kadie's Bar in Basin City. She was rescued by John Hartigan (Bruce Willis) from Roark Junior (Nick Stahl), also known as "The Yellow Bastard," a pedophile who victimizes young girls by raping and killing them. Alba reprises her role and appears in "Just Another Saturday Night" and "Nancy's Last Dance."
Rosario Dawson As Gail:
Dawson plays Gail, an enforcer of The Girls of Old Town, a group of prostitutes who govern themselves. Gail is described as a dominatrix. Her favourite weapon is the Uzi submachine gun. Like Ava Lord, she is also involved with Dwight McCarthy.
Jamie Chung As Miho:
Miho is the other enforcer of The Girls of Old Town. She uses roller skates and katana samurai swords. Aside from these, she also uses a Mongolian bow and throwing stars shaped like the Manji symbol. In "Sin City," Miho was played by model/actress Devon Aoki. Chung stepped in to replace Aoki as Miho in "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For."
Lady Gaga As Bertha:
