Famke Janssen is no stranger to the genre, landing on the horror map in ’95 with Clive Barker’s Lord of Illusions (that same year she made a splash with her turn in the James Bond film Goldeneye). Now, many years and movies later, audiences will find her playing a big, bad witch in Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters starring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton.
The AV Club spoke to the actress about her career and got her to touch on the film which opens in theaters January 25th. Beyond admitting she is “excited, but yet nervous to see what it’ll turn out to be,” Janssen talked about the challenges of her role.

Directed by Tommy Wirkola (Dead Snow), Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters takes place 15 years after the siblings’ incident at the gingerbread house. The two are now specialized bounty hunters looking to put down the cackling black-hat set.
