Dialogue: ‘Conan the Barbarian’ Star Rose McGowan Talks Marique’s Daddy Issues, Long Claws, Heavy Makeup and 'Red Sonja' (VIDEO)

Jul 25, 2011

She may be almost entirely unrecognizable, but yes, that is Rose McGowan rocking the porcelain skin, minimal leather outfit and, well, receding hairline in the trailer for Conan the Barbarian. She stars as the evil Marique, a powerful sorceress and the daughter of the ruthless Khalar Zym (Stephen Lang), Conan’s (Jason Momoa) archenemy.

With the film’s August 19th release on the horizon, McGowan hit San Diego Comic-Con to help spread the word. She dishes on all of the details including what it took to turn her into the character we see on screen, Marique’s weapon of choice, her daddy issues, as well as a moment between her and Lang that had to be cut from the film, for the fear of pushing a testy issue too far.

Before wrapping up, we revisit the much-discussed possibility of her playing Red Sonja on the big screen. The outlook’s been grim for quite a while and now McGowan 100% confirms it: She will not play Red Sonja. Hear all about that and, of course, McGowan’s experience working on Conan the Barbarian in the video interview below.
