‘Haywire’ Star’s Voice Altered For Film

All actors look to establish a separation between the characters they play on screen and the people they are in real life. This is particularly important if you’re a former MMA fighter portraying a covert agent in your first feature film. In “Haywire,” Gina Carano, the ex-mixed martial arts fighter, stars as Mallory Kane, an undercover agent who is double-crossed by the people she trusts. Obviously, it’s going to be hard for anyone watching this to separate the Carano from MMA with the one fighting on-screen, which is why director Steven Soderbergh decided to make a few edits during post-production. On a podcast with No Holds Barred, Gina revealed that Soderbergh digitally altered her voice in the movie. “Steven Soderbergh wanted Mallory to be two completely different entities … so he did do some altering and mixing,” admitted Carano. However, she added that the change didn’t matter to her. “I am just honored to be a part of it, whether it was altered or not … Even if he would have shaved my head and put Bill Clinton as my voice, I still would have done it.”Despite the voice alteration, whether audiences buy the Mallory/Gina separation remains to be seen — especially with all the fight scenes she’s involved with (one of which, you can check out here).”Haywire” hits theaters on January 20.[via TMZ]
