"- How do you feel now about "Sex and Lucia"? It was quite provocative.

- I feel good, it was at the beginning of my career, and I remember that movie had something very strong, very natural. The director was great and the movie had an international reputation. Because it was my first big movie, even people from Japan sometimes know me because of that film."
Vega didn't speak English when James L. Brooks cast her in the role of Flor Moreno in Spanglish. She not only had to study the English for the film, she needed a language coach in order to achieve a convincing Mexican accent.
"- My family and my friends say, Paz is in Hollywood, and they are very proud. People here are very charming and warm, they always say beautiful things. It's something I can feel -- when people talk to you they say, how is Hollywood? I feel really, really good because I love Seville, I love my people, my family. We have a lot of artists, a lot of great people here, but Hollywood is so far and people enjoy that. A little piece of Seville went to Hollywood!"
I had a chance to talk with the beautiful Paz Vega who stars alongside other lovely ladies in Frank Miller’s The Spirit, which opens Christmas Day (2008).
- "I don't want to play only Latin women. I want to have roles in English. "
- "I am only an actress when they say, 'action' and I stop being an actress when they say, 'cut'. I am a normal person outside of acting. "

Adapted from the legendary graphic novels, Will Eisner's The Spirit is a classic action-adventure-romance told by genre-twister Frank Miller (creator of 300 and Sin City). It is the story of a former rookie-cop who returns mysteriously from the dead as The Spirit (Gabriel Macht) to fight crime from the shadows of Central City. His arch-enemy, The Octopus (Samuel L. Jackson) has a different mission: he's going to wipe out Spirit's beloved city as he pursues his own version of immortality. The Spirit tracks this cold-hearted killer from Central City's rundown warehouses, to the damp catacombs, to the windswept waterfront ... all the while facing a bevy of beautiful women who either want to seduce, love or kill our masked crusader. Surrounding him at every turn are Ellen Dolan, the whip-smart girl-next-door; Sand Saref (Eva Mendes), the jewel thief with dangerous curves; Silken Floss (Scarlett Johansson), a punk secretary and frigid vixen; Plaster of Paris, a murderous French nightclub dancer; Lorelai, a phantom siren; and Morganstern, a sexy young cop. In the vein of Batman Begins and Sin City, The Spirit takes us on a sinister, gut-wrenching ride with a hero who is born, murdered and born again.

The Spirit is a fictional American masked crime-fighter, created by writer-artist Will Eisner in 1940. The Spirit chronicled the adventures of a masked vigilante who fought crime with the blessing of the city's police commissioner Dolan, an old friend. Despite the Spirit's origin as a detective named Denny Colt, his real identity was virtually unmentioned again and for all intents and purposes he was simply "The Spirit". The stories ranged through a wide variety of styles, from straightforward crime drama and noir to lighthearted adventure, from mystery and horror to comedy and love stories, often with hybrid elements that twisted genre and expectations.
