To take advantage of the next release of the fifth edition of "Underworld," Latin Times spoke to Kate Beckinsale, main actress of the saga, and she confessed herself about all these years with the franchise.  Kate took some time out of her busy schedule to tell us about how happy she feels with "Underworld: Blood Wars" and the kind of acting career she has cultivated.

For Kate, the new film has been one of the most challenging for her character, "Selene." This time, she’s more on point than ever physically, as the action is more intense and demands more from her.

"Compared to the last movies my character is going to blow in terms of determination and it’ll be more than wars between vampires and lycans. The action is really intense and very exciting. The world of 'Underworld' is very opened up so it really goes back to the first 'Underworld' but in bigger scale," the actress told Latin Times.

On the fifth film, originally uncertainly titled "Underworld: Next Generation," after hiding her daughter, Selene, David (Theo James) and his father Thomas (Charles Dance), attempt to end the eternal war between Lycans and Vampires, though Selene must take a risk that may cost her life. This time, the film’s director is Anna Foerster who’s been working with Roland Emmerich on different movies like "Independence Day." She is the first woman to direct "Underworld" ever.

"This franchise loves mixing up directors and welcomes aboard new ones who are very passionate about their job. It’s very appropriate to have a woman in the movie," Beckinsale said.

Despite actors who reject working on long time productions, Kate has been working since 2003 with the saga and seems to enjoy every edition of it.

"I really like my career being balanced. I feel very lucky that we’re releasing the fifth 'Underworld' and I’m still able to work here and do another things at the same time, it challenges me. To be in a production like this, makes me physically confident as an actor and it has been very helpful. I didn’t go to Drama School, I didn’t spend three years pretending, this practice keeps me active and I love the experience," she added.

The actress also admitted she’s never ready to say goodbye to the series of movies since from the first one she wasn’t expecting to continue with the same picture for all these years. "Blood Wars" will be released on January 6, 2017.  Another version of the movie hasn’t been confirmed.
