Aaliyah Talks about the sequels
Aaliyah was interviewed mostly about her new role as Akasha (the mother of all vampires) in 'Queen of the Damned.' She did have a few things to say about appearing in the 'Matrix' sequels:
It (playing Akasha) also was a physically demanding role, which the longtime dancer and swimmer can parlay soon when she returns to Australia to film the two simultaneously shot sequels to The Matrix. "Lips are sealed,"she says about the films' details, though she confesses she'll play a character named Zee.
She's game for more action, which is good because she's required to do her own stunts. "I love that because I want to do it all."
No word yet on whether she'll appear on her movies' soundtracks.
