London - Eva Green has "balls" in 300: Rise of an Empire.

The Casino Royale beauty plays feisty warrior Artemisia in the follow-up to 2007's hit movie 300, and has described her character - who helps lead Persian king Xerxes' army to war - as a "strong woman".

She said: "She has some balls, that's for sure. It's my first action movie. Artemisia's like an Amazon. She's a very, very strong woman."

300: Rise of an Empire sees Rodrigo Santoro reprise his role as the powerful Xerxes, while little-known filmmaker Noam Murro replaces 300 director Zack Snyder in the director's chair.

Green is set to play another fiery character in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For and reveals she took up an intense gym regime to prepare for the part.

She explained to Total Film magazine: "I had to work out like hell. I looked like G.I. Jane."

300: Rise of an Empire is due for release in August, while Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is set to hit the big screen later this year.
