As Priyanka Chopra enthrals viewers yet again with Quantico Season 2, there is yet another role of hers that fans are eager to see. The versatile actress will be playing a negative character Victoria Leeds in her Hollywood debut, Baywatch.

In an a chat with Interview magazine, she revealed interesting details about her character in the film. She said:

She (Victoria) is extremely feminine, very evil, extremely delectable, manipulative and patronizing, which is not at all Alex (her character from Quantico). These are completely different people. Victoria is strong because she has minions. She has people who do her dirty work. She doesn’t look at how to get results, she just gets them. She doesn’t have morality. But also. . . it’s a comedy.

On playing a negative character, she said:

It was so much fun to be able to create Victoria in Baywatch. It was awesome to bring that black evilness into their positive, beautiful world.

And also added:

It wasn’t ever difficult being Victoria, it was just creating. And the joy of creating is the truest joy. I don’t enjoy being told what to do, I’m not that kind of actor, I’m a thinking actor. I need to work with people who have the ability to do that.

On her experience of working with Hollywood directors:

It was so much fun. Seth Gordon, the director, is huge a collaborator, and same with Josh Safran, for that matter, on Quantico. I’ve been very fortunate that the people I’ve worked with have been such collaborators when it comes to my characters.

I am really looking forward to see Priyanka ‘star’ Chopra in Baywatch. The film starring Dwayne Johnson is releasing on May 19.
