The Machine is a British Sci-Fi thriller directed by Caradog W. James. Just to refresh your memory, here is the synopsis of the Sci-Fi thriller The Machine:
"Set in the near future and with the world plunged into another cold war; Britain's Ministry of Defense is on the verge of developing a robotic soldier. This soldier, called The Machine, looks and sounds human, but has the strength, speed, and ruthlessness beyond that of any living person. The project is near completion when a bug in the programming, a side effect of it being too close to human coding, causes the prototype to destroy the lab and everyone in its path in spectacularly violent fashion. Undeterred by this setback, lead scientist Vincent McCarthy enlists the help of an artificial intelligence expert to help him harness the full potential of a truly conscious fighting machine."
And now the Canary Sings! Caity Lotz of WB's Arrow, sits down with thecelebritycafe.com to talk about her experience while filming The Machine. Here are some excerpts of the interview:
TheCelebrityCafe: Tell me a little bit about The Machine—what drew you to the role?
Caity Lotz: I play two different characters, which is something I've always wanted to do and one of the characters is Ava, the artificial intelligence scientist, and then the other is The Machine. And I guess what drew me to it was just the chance to play two different characters and the fact that one of them wasn't even human and so it would be pretty challenging, so I was excited about that.
TCC: What do you think audiences will like about the film?
CL: I think it's a really interesting sci-fi film. You don't see too many low budget sci-fi films, but this one, it's kind of amazing what they were able to achieve with the effects and all that. And I think it's a cool take on The Machine because instead of like a Terminator emotionless killing thing, it's a lot more complicated and emotional and really develops throughout the film.
