Lizzy Caplan is the latest addition to the four incredible magicians, collectively known as the Four Horsemen, in "Now You See Me 2" and she is sure that her role of Lula May adds more awesomeness to the fabulous cast.
The movie is a sequel to the 2013 film "Now You See Me," which narrates the story of four magicians who go on a secret mission by a mysterious group called the "Eye."
All the cast members from the original film have returned for the sequel, including Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson and Dave Franco, except for Isla Fisher, who has been replaced by Caplan.
Talking about her role in the movie, Caplan said that Lula has been a huge fan of the Four Horsemen and is pretty excited to be the new girl in the family. She also explained her character among the other magicians.
"Lula is a dexterous girl who has a very unique personality of her own. I had to work exhaustively to adapt to the role and make sure that Lula is recognisable among the already famous magicians in the group. Sometimes, I even had to practice during the filming," Caplan said.
Talking about her experience with the movie and other actors, Caplan said that it was an "interesting thing to fake being a magician." The combination of movie magic and real magic was what made it so beautiful. However, she added that it was no easy job and she often had to ask for guidance of three magicians on the set.
Caplan also said that she enjoyed working with the movie's crew.
"It was fun to work with the team. Though the work was hectic, it was very enjoying... Fun and party, every single day," she said.
The movie was mostly shot in London and partially in Macau. It was the first shoot in London that Caplan ever did and she is looking forward to returning to the city in future. She also liked her time in Macau and said that the place is a combination of Las Vegas and China with Portuguese influence.
"It was fascinating," Caplan said.
"Now You See Me 2" is scheduled to release in India on June 17.
