Michelle Rodriguez and Ming-Na Wen among the strong group of women being honored at this year’s Artemis Women In Action Film Awards in Beverly Hills.
BREAKAWAY DAILY: Can you talk a bit about this year’s kick-ass honorees?
MELANIE: We are over the moon to recognize actress Michelle Rodriguez (Fast and Furious franchise, Avatar, Battle: Los Angeles) at this edition with the Artemis Action Revolutionary Award. Her first film was starring as Fight Girl. She has lived up to that name playing role after role of dynamic characters and refusing to take on roles of victim or understanding wife. In terms of demanding and getting unique roles in Hollywood, she truly is a revolutionary.
