Samara spoke to Elle Australia during the Snake Eyes press day earlier this week, and they’ve now released a great new article summarizing what they discussed in her interview which you can read below. I’m unable to embed the accompanying video onto the site, so make sure to head over to Elle’s official site here to watch it!
Samara Weaving’s distinctive blonde hair is synonymous to her personal aesthetic. So when her character in 2021 film Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins was revealed, you couldn’t blame her fans for being a little taken aback.
Samara’s sun-bleached blonde tresses were transformed into a long, fiery red mane belonging to the kick-ass comic book character Scarlett.
Speaking to ELLE Australia ahead of the film’s release this week, Samara (who is now back to her familiar honey blonde), revealed she “loved” her stint as a red-head.
“It was so pretty, and long,” she described to us.
But don’t be fooled by those lush red locks seen in the film. Upon further investigation, Samara revealed the transformation was actually all down to a wig.
“I loved putting that wig on every day. I gonna try to hunt it down and wear it,” she said.
When asked if going red permanently was an option, Samara admitted upkeep would be a clincher.
“You’d have to dye it all the time, and that would be tricky,” she laughed.
Her red hair wasn’t the only thing she loved about her character’s look. While much of G.I. Joe squad member Scarlett’s wardrobe was pieced together to compliment her rather, um, action-filled lifestyle, there were several low-key scenes where we got a peek of the black-belted character’s personal style.
“[Scarlett] is very stylish when she’s not in her superhero suit. I want to steal all of it! I loved her leather coat, and there were some boots with snakes on the bottom, they were sick,” Samara said.
Samara is fast becoming one of Australia’s biggest Hollywood stars alongside the likes of Margot Robbie and Isla Fisher. Like Samara, both actresses got their start on popular local soaps, Neighbours and Home And Away.
Of course, Samara’s roles these days are a far cry from her gentle Home And Away character, Indi.
There’s marital artist Scarlett from G.I. Joe, and her depiction of revenge-seeking Grace from Ready Or Not was absolutely on-point. And who could forget the relentlessly terrifying Nix from Kiwi action comedy Guns Akimbo?
In addition, Samara has recently snapped up a leading role in blockbuster-bound The Valet, an English-language remake of the popular French film.
“I would never do the things that these characters did so it’s really fun to live out this fantasy of someone who just kicks ass and doesn’t care. It’s awesome,” Samara told us.
The Adelaide-born actress is keen to keep fuelling that female superhero fire in film, especially where representation has lacked in the past.
“I remember when I saw Wonder Woman, and there’s that opening scene where it’s all women fighting. I just started crying because I realised I hadn’t ever seen that before – an entirely female cast in an action.
“Having that representation makes us feel seen and validated. I realised I really haven’t really seen that other than in, like Charlie’s Angels or Kim Possible. So I’m really glad to be a part of that, I hope there’s more!”

Collider | With director Robert Schwentke’s Snakes Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins opening this weekend in theaters, I recently spoke with Samara Weaving about playing Scarlett in the Snake Eyes movie.. During the fun interview, Weaving talked about what people would be surprised to learn about the making of the film, why even though the costumes look awesome on screen they can be tough to work with, her thoughts on Snake Eyes and Scarlett having a relationship in a sequel, why she loves her stunt double (Jacqueline Lee Geurts), and more.
In addition, with Weaving currently filming Damien Chazelle’s next movie, Babylon, she talked about why she wanted to be part of the project and how she’s getting ready to film Chevalier de Saint-Georges with Kelvin Harrison Jr. in Prague soon. While not much is known about Babylon, it’s supposedly set in the late 1920s as the film industry shifts from silent films to talkies and the incredible cast is made up of Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt, Katherine Waterston, Max Minghella, Olivia Wilde, Tobey Maguire, Phoebe Tonkin, and filmmaker Spike Jonze.
If you haven’t seen the trailers, Snake Eyes tells the story of how Snake Eyes (Henry Golding) and Storm Shadow (Andrew Koji) met and how their brotherly relationship fell apart. The film also introduces Úrsula Corberó as The Baroness, Haruka Abe as Akiko, Tahehiro Hira as Kenta, Iko Uwais as Hard Master, and Peter Mensah as Blind Master.
