Karen Fuk is Uhara Katana
Did you know how to sword fight before shooting?
I’ve had karate training for about five years and I used to compete in karate forms back in high school. For sword fighting I panicked and took one private lesson with someone that practised sword fighting the day before my audition for about five or six hours and he taught me everything and I went into the audition and I guess it worked.
how much do you know about katana’s past?
Her backstory is not the focus of the movie, but I have that in me. Her journey is trying to find people she can trust. She starts off kind of a lone wolf as the protector of Rick Flag, but by the end of the movie she’s really become part of a team, part of a family, so growth wise her issue is trust.
how do you connect emotionally with a sword?
I had a couple of questions about the Soultaker, if it would be hard to connect with an object. But from the get-go when I read the script I realised the Soultaker is not just a sword, it’s a character. It’s my husband. So when I realised that it became very easy to connect and related to an object really.
