Italia Ricci talks Siobhan Smythe was able to talk with Italia Ricci about her new role, Siobhan (Cinnabun) Smythe, debuting tonight! For those that don't know, Siobhan Smythe is from the DC comics. She has an alter ego as well, the incredibly dangerous and fueled by magic, Silver Banshee. Here are a few exerpts from the interview:

Silver Banshee has super sonic screams and yells … how was filming that?

It’s fun. I wanted to try and see if I could get a pitch that would be uncomfortable for people … and terrifying and forceful.

Did you actually have to scream?

I didn’t have to and I didn’t always scream or else I would’ve completely lost my voice. I wanted to try a few times to feel what my face is doing when I’m screaming as hard as I can. So I did a few times to get the blood pumping and the veins popping, all that good stuff.

What can you tease us about Monday’s episode?

You’re going to really get to know Siobhan before she becomes Banshee. You’re going to see why she’s popped into this world and what she’s looking to accomplish. You’ll see her throw a wrench in all these well-formed relationships. She wreaks havoc on everything.

What kind of training did you have to do for the role?

When I found out [I got the role] it was shooting right after Christmas, which was already terrible because I had ate all the rigatoni at my parents’ house! I was like, “Oh, no.”

I looked at pictures and was like that’s the tightest-looking outfit. So, I hired a trainer and started working out in the beginning of the year to try and tighten up. I was so scared of being in a super skintight latex suit. Thankfully, it has to be thick enough to withstand all of the stunts, so I got lucky.
