With director Tanya Wexler’s Jolt now streaming on Amazon Prime Video, I recently spoke to Kate Beckinsale about making the action-comedy. During the fun and wide-ranging interview, Beckinsale talked about why she wanted to make this movie, what people might be surprised to learn about the making of Jolt, how much fun she had working with Stanley Tucci, if she thinks he’ll invite her to be on Searching for Italy Season 2, Charlie Day’s directorial debut El Tonto, and her upcoming Paramount+ series Guilty Party. In addition, if you follow Beckinsale on Instagram, you’ve probably seen her cats and dog, which let me to asking about her pets and how one of her cats loves being dressed up. Finally, for some reason people search “is Kate Beckinsale in Lord in the Rings.” I asked her if she has any idea why.

If you haven’t seen the trailers, Jolt is about a woman (Beckinsale) with a lifelong, rare neurological disorder, who experiences sporadic rage-filled, murderous impulses that can only be stopped when she shocks herself with a special electrode device that she has to constantly wear. After finally finding a man she trusts, she’s heartbroken when he is killed the next day. As you can probably guess, she decides to embarks on a revenge-filled mission to find his killer. Jolt also stars Bobby Cannavale, Jai Courtney, Laverne Cox, David Bradley, Ori Pfeffer, Susan Sarandon, and Tucci.

Check out what she had to say in the player above and below is exactly what we talked about.
