Am­ber Heard is Mera

SFX - - Aquaman - James White

How was the repar­tee be­tween you and Ja­son when you were film­ing?

We can’t stand each other! [laughs]. Arthur and Mera are re­ally very dif­fer­ent but in­form each other in cer­tain ways. Where one is strong, the other is weak and vice versa. it’s in­ter­est­ing, be­cause they have play­ful, cool ban­ter that de­vel­ops into some­thing deeper. But Ja­son and i have pretty de­cent ban­ter too.

What are you ex­cited for peo­ple to see?

James has cre­ated some in­cred­i­ble uni­verses that we could only get a lit­tle sense of by see­ing cer­tain con­cept art. And when you watch even a lit­tle of it in the trailer, in clips, you get a sense of the enor­mity of this uni­verse that we have not seen yet as au­di­ences. there are seven dif­fer­ent king­doms, all with a dis­tinct look and cul­ture and it’s not just one world we meet.

What was the cos­tume like to wear?

it was, how un­com­fort­able can i be? When i got to put a coat on for a few scenes out of the wa­ter, i felt like i was be­ing hugged all over my body by baby an­gels! i didn’t want to go back to my At­lantean suit.

But you weren’t the only one with cos­tume is­sues…

When i first saw Pa­trick [Wil­son, who plays the vil­lain­ous Orm] on set, no one told me he was go­ing to be hoisted up in the air in my eye­line. And i lost it. i wasn’t ex­pect­ing it. He looked like a Christ­mas or­na­ment, fly­ing through the air!
