In case you have been under a rock, the Underworld movie series chronicles the mythological battle between lycans and vampires.
The saga primarily centers on the actions of a butt-kicking vampire, Selene (played by Kate Beckinsale), who finds herself caught up in a war between the two opposing factions while learning that her brethren may not be as righteous as she once thought.
Although additional Underworld films are anticipated, Beckinsale has suggested that she is no longer interested in reprising her role.
Although the movie franchise has its share of detractors and critics, I for one always find Beckinsale’s portrayal the best part of the film. She is a fierce character and easy to support.
Without Selene played by Beckinsale, theUnderworld is simply another unworthy world.
Unlike the franchise, Beckinsale does not need to be in the subsequent films. Since her casting inUnderworld in 2003, she has had roles in several action/sci-fi/horror films. Her decision may very well finally put an end to the 15 year vampire/werewolf battle once and for all.
