The Bourne Supremacy: A recent interview with About.com has actress Julia Stiles talking about her role in The Bourne Supremacy, which serves as the seqeul to 2002's The Bourne Identity...
Do you have a bigger role in The Bourne Supremacy? I do. I mean, it couldn't really get any smaller than the first one. How does the secretary come back? I thought that I'd gotten out of the world of the CIA after almost being killed in the first one and Joan Allen is sort of heading the operation to find him again and she drags me off of the street and against my will kind of makes me help her find him because they think that I have more information. I was the last person to see Jason Bourne alive and they think that I have a lot more information and they make me sort of spy on him. Did you do the first one knowing you might have a bigger role in the second? It crossed my mind, but I didn't hang my hat on it. They're still constantly rewriting the script and so, who knows. Years ago, of course, I had no way of predicting what would happen in the second one. Are you in any action sequences? Actually, I'm really happy that I don't have any action scenes. Most of my stuff are more psychologically driven scenes. Matt does a lot of the action stuff. Are you working with Matt Damon in the film? Yeah. I have a really great scene with him in the movie where he catches me sort of spying on him, and at the risk of giving too much away, he remembers that I was the last person who saw him and so, he also wants to help me fill him in on his past, but he wants to do it without the CIA sort of observing us or having me wired. So, he drags me into the subway and is interrogating me and even holds a gun to my head and things like that. I don't want to give it all away.
