Selene is a Vampire - a Death Dealer, sworn to hunt down and eradicate the remaining Lycan. From the blockbuster movie Underworld comes this incredibly.

Full character profile for Selene, Kate Beckinsale's character in the first Underworld movie. Photos, biography, skills, quotes, gear, characterisation, etc.
In the process, she ignores Kraven's orders to be present when Amelia's envoy arrives, angering him. Selene tracks down the human she believes the Lycans have an interest in Michael Corvin.
She kicks in his door and attacks him when he enters the apartment , demanding to know why the Lycans are searching for him. Before she can get her answers, Lycans attack the building and Michael runs off.
Selene shoots her way to the bottom floor, where she rescues Michael from an unknown Lycan. Unknown to Selene, the Lycan bites Michael, infecting him with the Lycanthropy virus.
The Lycan attacks Selene as she drives off, stabbing her in the shoulder and severing an artery. Selene refuses to listen to Michael when he tries to point out her large amount of blood loss, causing her to pass out and drive her car off a pier.
Michael saves Selene and performs CPR on her, clearing the water from her lungs. He then bandages her wound and passes out beside her.
When Selene awakens, she finds her wound has healed. There, Selene is berated by an enraged Kraven for staying out all day and for bringing Michael into the mansion.
As Kraven yells at her, he mentions a Lycan named Lucian in the present tense, making Selene suspicious. She begins to suspect that Kraven never really killed Lucian as he claims to have done, and breaks into the Coven's archives to find proof of her theory.
In one of the books, she sees a drawing of Lucian, which depicts him wearing the same necklace she saw on the Lycan who attacked her the previous night.
Selene realizes that Lucian is alive and well and that she saw him just the night before. Selene awakens Viktor, then flees the mansion with Michael, whom she learns has been bitten by Lucian.
The two hide in a Vampire safe house , but Selene abandons him there once dawn approaches. Before she leaves, she kisses him, then handcuffs him to a chair.
She gives him a gun with silver bullets to use in case he starts to turn. At the mansion, Viktor chastises Selene for awakening him a century ahead of schedule and orders her to be judged by the Vampire Council , which he and Selene both know will be a death sentence.
Kraven leads Selene back to her room, where he locks her in. After closing the door, Kraven tells one of his men to keep a close eye on Selene, as she is his "future queen".
Erika, who is desperately in love with Kraven, becomes angered by this. She uses the opportunity to shut down power to the mansion and to free Selene from her room.
As soon as she is released, Selene goes to Michael, but she is followed by a group of Lycans. The Lycans attack the pair and are able to kidnap Michael.
Selene finds one of the Lycans, Singe , still alive. She tortures him into confessing why the Lycans want Michael, then takes him back to the mansion to tell this to Viktor, clearing her name in the process.
Upon hearing the Lycan's story and learning Lucian is indeed still alive, Viktor apologizes to Selene for doubting her.
Before he leaves the room, he tells her that she must kill Michael. Conflicted, Selene joins a group of Death Dealers led by Kahn in an assault on the Lycan den, but quickly splits from the group to find Michael.
She releases Michael from his bonds and learns from him the truth of how the war between the Vampires and Lycans really started.
As the duo try to escape, they are confronted by Kraven. Enraged at the sight of Selene with Michael, Kraven shoots Michael with silver nitrate bullets.
Kraven then tells Selene that her place is by his side and offers her his hand, but she again refuses, looking longingly down at Michael.
Angered, Kraven tells Selene about how her family really died and how the war started. Selene initially doesn't believe him, but she begins to understand he is telling the truth.
On Lucian's advice, Selene bites Michael, infecting him with the Vampire virus. The combination of the two viruses makes Michael a Hybrid, a creature containing the strongest elements of both the Lycan and Vampire species.
Selene confronts Viktor about her family and his actions that started the war after he throws Michael through a wall.
Though he tries to explain his position, Selene clearly no longer trusts him. Viktor draws his sword and prepares to attack Michael, to which Selene cries out "No!
During Viktor's fight with Michael, Selene rushes to Michael's aid, killing Viktor's bodyguards in the process.
Upon seeing Viktor strangling Michael to death, Selene grabs Viktor's sword and uses it to cut his head in half, saving Michael and avenging her family at the same time.
Selene finds Sonja's pendant lying in the dirt and picks it up, recognizing that it is now a symbol of her love for Michael, as it had once symbolized the love between Sonja and Lucian.
However, her plan is foiled when she realizes Marcus has somehow become a Hybrid. At the same time, she hears gunshots and sees that Michael has caught the attention of human police officers, who are now shooting at him.
Selene quickly incapacitates the officers and saves a bullet-riddled Michael by feeding him her blood.
Immediately after, Selene is confronted by Marcus, who attacks her when she does not immediately give him the information he seeks, intending to drink her blood and gain her memories.
Michael intervenes, giving the pair time to escape. After narrowly escaping Marcus and the coming sunlight, Selene and Michael take refuge in a warehouse.
In the warehouse, Michael attempts to tend to Selene's burn wounds, only to discover they have already healed.
While hiding in the warehouse, the two finally act upon their feelings for each other. Later, Selene recognizes the medallion from her youth, horrifying her.
Wanting to find out why Marcus was after the pendant after all this time, Selene seeks out Andreas Tanis. Tanis initially tries to kill Selene and Michael upon seeing them but fails.
Instead, Selene attacks and easily kills Tanis's two lovers , then confronts Tanis himself. Tanis explains to her why Viktor killed her family, and also reveals that it was Marcus, not Viktor, who was the original Vampire.
Selene and Michael confront Alexander, asking him to help them to stop Marcus and his twin brother, William.
Alexander instead refuses to help and accuses Selene herself of being a monster, due to her role in the racial extermination of the Lycans.
Selene argues with him, but their argument is cut short by the sudden appearance of Marcus, who grabs Michael and lifts him through the top of the boat.
Selene is devastated by Michael's death and tries desperately to revive him with her blood while mourning his apparent loss.
Realizing that she cannot save him, Selene returns to Alexander's ship , intent on finding and killing Marcus. Before she does, she demands of Alexander's " Cleaner " soldiers that they take Michael's body with them to the fortress.
They arrive too late, however, and Selene is forced to fight Marcus. On the verge of being overwhelmed, she is saved by Michael, who has regenerated due to his Hybrid powers.
Selene fights Marcus once more, and the Elder drives his wing talon through her chest. After Marcus and William are killed, Selene discovers that she is able to stand in the sunlight due to the pure Corvinus Strain from Alexander Corvinus.
She embraces Michael with a passionate kiss while reflecting that despite the uncertain future, she is confident that she need not face it alone.
Selene narrates the beginning of Underworld: Rise of the Lycans. At the end of the film, she can be seen in a flashback of the opening scene of the first film, during which Kraven is heard telling her the truth about Viktor, her family, and Sonja, followed by Selene's response of "Lies".
Underworld: Awakening begins six months after the events of Underworld: Evolution. Humanity has become aware of the Vampire and Lycan populations and has taken drastic measures to exterminate them.
Selene and Michael plan to escape the city via boat before they themselves become victims of the Purge , but Selene is apprehended before they can reach safety and Michael is shot, falling into the water.
Selene jumps in after him, but he is unresponsive. She is then knocked unconscious by a grenade which separates them before either can reach the surface.
Twelve years later, Selene awakens to find herself locked in cryogenic suspension. After breaking free, she escapes the facility where she is being held captive.
She soon discovers that the corporation Antigen is working on an antidote for the virus that creates Vampires and Lycans and that they have held her captive in an induced coma for the past twelve years.
Selene begins to experience visions after her escape which she follows, believing them to be a newly formed link to Michael.
The visions lead her into a disused building where she meets David , a fellow Vampire. He is suspicious of her arrival, but their conversation is interrupted by another vision that Selene quickly chases down, as the person in question is cornered by Lycans.
Jacob Lane , director of Antigen, is revealed to be a Lycan alongside his son Quint ; the antidote is actually to make Lycans immune to the deadly effects of silver.
Selene tries to protect Eve, but they are once again separated when she comes face to face with Quint, who transforms into a gigantic "super Lycan", his body changed by injections using Eve's blood.
Selene is defeated and knocked unconscious, allowing Eve to be captured by the Lycans. She wakes up to find David mortally wounded and his father gave Eve over to the Lycans in exchange for a ceasefire.
Selene is furious and revives David using her Immortal blood, then leaves the Coven to rescue her daughter. Able to survive in sunlight, Selene enlists the help of Detective Sebastian , a human who has been trying to investigate Antigen.
He agrees to help save Eve, admitting he was married to a Vampire until she committed suicide during the Purge. Selene storms her way into Antigen's headquarters with explosives, forcing Dr.
Lane to move Eve out of the building to "harvest" the antidote. All of the Lycan workers in the facility morph and attack Selene.
During her escape, she stumbles upon Michael, cryogenically frozen in a laboratory marked as "Subject 0", and damages his cell to release him.
Selene then runs out to intercept Dr. Lane's van before he can escape the parking lot and causes it to crash.
Quint arrives, transforming into his super Lycan form, and fights Selene. He corners her and is forced to revert to his human form in order to reach her, only for Selene to thrust an activated silver-based grenade into Quint's body, causing him to explode.
Selene returns to Eve and Sebastian tells them he will redirect the authorities to give them time to escape. She leaves with Eve and David to find Michael but finds Michael's chamber already empty.
Able to see through her parents' eyes, Eve learns he is on the roof. Selene, Eve, and David run to the roof, only to find Michael has gone.
Selene concludes she will find Michael and take back the world from the humans and Lycans so the Vampires can rebuild themselves.
Following the events of the previous film, Selene has now become a pariah, hunted by Lycans and Vampires alike. Selene and her daughter Eve seemed to have had an argument for unknown reasons, causing Eve to go into hiding and demanding Selene to not look for her.
With the loss of both her daughter and Michael, and marked for death by the Vampire Council, who consider her a traitor, Selene has grown world-weary, wandering alone.
Selene is also hunted by the Lycan leader Marius , who seeks the location of Eve, not realizing that even Selene doesn't know where she is.
Selene is chased and cornered by several Lycans but is able to hold them off until David arrives and helps fight them off.
Selene spares one Lycan, Gregor , ordering him to take a message to Marius. She then takes David to a nearby safehouse to treat his wound - David having been shot with what is revealed to be a tracker.
She attacks them, assuming they are here to execute her until Alexia gives her and David a letter from his father, Thomas, who states that the Council have granted Selene clemency and want her to join the Eastern Coven to train Death Dealers in order to defeat Marius.
Selene initially refuses, distrusting the Council, but David convinces her to come, saying his father can be trusted and that defeating Marius is the only way to truly keep Eve safe.
Selene begins training the new Death Dealer recruits; however, while sparring with Varga , he slashes her hand with a knife imbued with nightshade , leaving her temporarily paralyzed.
Council member Semira , who had originally requested that Thomas bring Selene in, arrives and reveals this was a ruse; she actually wants Selene's blood to turn herself into a Vampire-Corvinus Strain Hybrid to seize control of the Coven, and also seeks to kill Selene in revenge for killing Viktor - whom Semira was once close to.
As Selene watches helplessly, Varga kills the recruits to prevent any witnesses and frames her for their deaths. After losing consciousness, Selene is secretly taken to Semira's private chambers, where she is attached to a device to drain her blood.
Before she can be completely drained, she is found and rescued by David and Thomas, who tells his son to take Selene north, where they will find sanctuary in Var-dohr, the Nordic Coven.
David is able to flee with the weakened Selene in broad daylight, preventing Semira from following them. David allows Selene to drink his blood to recover once she wakes.
From his memories, Selene learns about the Nordic Coven, as well as the death of Thomas, who sacrificed himself to buy her and David time to escape.
Selene expresses her sympathies to David over the death of his father and laments how terrible things seem to happen to everyone she cares about.
David comforts her and together, they set off by train to the north. After trekking across mountains and a frozen lake, Selene and David arrive at the Nordic Coven's stronghold, where they are welcomed by its leader, Vidar , and his daughter Lena , after she assures them she comes in peace.
When Vidar reveals he knew David's late mother and that the Coven's mourning for her lasted a long time, Selene realizes that this meant David's mother was an extremely high-ranking Vampire and deduces that she was the Elder Amelia.
She further deduces that this means David is the rightful heir to the leadership of the Eastern Coven. After a shocked David rejects this and storms off, Vidar gives Selene a small, spherical receptacle, containing a ring and several vials, each containing a sample of Amelia's blood.
Selene goes to comfort David. She acknowledges that he wants to be alone right now, but insists he takes Amelia's ring, saying that drinking some of his mother's blood and thus gaining access to her memories may help him come to terms with the revelation, which is later proved correct.
Selene finds Lena preparing a Vampire for a special cocooning process that takes them to the 'Sacred World', allowing the Vampire to gain additional knowledge and powers.
Selene appears skeptical until Lena reveals several facts about Selene she could not possibly have known by 'reading' her.
Driven to tears and seeking guidance, Selene asks Lena if she knows what the future holds for her and if she can reach the 'sacred place'.
Lena informs her that water shows the way and also warns her that she must go "further than she has ever gone before" to defeat her enemies and find the peace she seeks.
Shortly after, the Coven is attacked by Lycans, they having tracked Selene and David. Selene stays to fight the Lycans and battles Marius himself.
Despite her efforts, Marius overpowers Selene, who quickly realizes he is no ordinary Lycan. Selene briefly gains the upper hand, only to be stabbed in the back by Alexia, who is revealed to be Marius's lover.
Outnumbered and gravely injured, Selene is left to the mercy of Marius and Alexia. Marius asks where he can find Eve, saying she is the key to ending the war and promising he will not harm her.
Selene, however, does not trust him and informs him she doesn't know where her daughter is. Marius has Alexia drink some of Selene's blood to see her memories and discovers she is telling the truth.
Enraged, Marius repeatedly shoots Selene, who believes her time is up and accepts her fate calmly. Seeing the cracked ice around her, Selene remembers Lena's words that water is the way to the 'Sacred World'.
She uses the last of her strength to lift the ice and slips into the freezing water. Her body is retrieved by David and she is wrapped and submerged in freezing water by Lena.
The cocooning process revives Selene, healing her injuries and granting her additional powers, making her stronger and deadlier than ever.
Once she has recovered, Selene leads the Nordic Coven's warriors to the Eastern Coven, to aid them in their battle against Marius and his Lycan army.
Selene, now wearing a Nordic coat and with white highlights in her hair, uses her newly-enhanced speed to rush through the battle and kill several Lycans to the shock of everyone who had thought her to be dead.
Once again, Selene fights Marius, and with her new abilities, she gains a significant edge. Marius is still more than a match for her though, and things become even direr after Selene tastes a drop of Marius's blood and sees through his memories that he had met her long-lost lover, Michael.
Selene manages to cut Marius with a knife and, retreating to the sparring cage, drinks a sip of his blood - this time, to her horror and grief, she sees that Marius captured Michael after his escape from Antigen, killed him and has been using his blood to gain his enhanced abilities.
Selene's grief over Michael's sudden loss leaves her vulnerable, with Marius overpowering her and repeatedly beating her.
However, Selene's thoughts of her and Michael's daughter gives her the strength to fight back. She dodges around Marius using her enhanced speed and, before he can attack her again, punches through his back and tears out his spinal column with her bare hand, killing him and avenging Michael's death.
David arrives moments later and uses Marius' severed head to get the Lycan army to retreat without a further fight.
Afterwards, Selene is fully accepted by the Coven again. She is then named one of three new Vampire Elders , along with David and Lena, achieving the ultimate honour and status among the Covens.
Selene apparently remains at the Nordic Coven after this and at the end of the film, is shown finally being reunited with Eve.
Selene is the protagonist of the minute anime, Underworld: Endless War , which chronicles events during three different periods of time.
In the first section, Selene is hunting a trio of Lycan brothers who are in control of a mansion that Kraven desires.
Selene attacks the brothers in a sewer system beneath the mansion, killing the eldest brother, Darius , when he puts himself between her and his brothers.
Seventy years later, Selene is dispatched back to Paris to protect a powerful Vampire known as Lord Clovis , the leader of the Paris branch of the Old World Coven, who are preparing to perform a traditional ceremony.
She arrives in time to see the two remaining Lycan brothers, Vregis and Krandrill , attacking the ceremony, killing Lord Clovis. Against the sacred laws of The Vampire Covenant , she and Michael, who was infected with the lycanthropy virus, fell in love.
She awakens Viktor from his deep slumber torpor , believing that only he has the power to deal with the conspiracy between Kraven and Lucian.
She then leads a mass assault on the Lycans' underground bunker. After Michael was shot with silver nitrate by Kraven, Selene was forced to infect Michael with her vampire strain in order to save his life, thus making him the first hybrid, a Lycan dominant hybrid.
She also learned the truth about the identity of her family's killer from Kraven; she struck Viktor down while the Elder was preoccupied fighting Michael.
She then retrieved Sonja's pendant, carrying-on her legacy. They were confronted by Markus , the last surviving Vampire Elder.
He was now a Vampire-Dominant Hybrid, due to his ingesting the blood of Lycan scientist Singe, which had seeped into his chamber.
As Markus attacks her, Michael intervenes and battles him to protect her. After narrowly escaping Markus and the sunlight, Selene and Michael take refuge in a warehouse and begin a sexual relationship.
Selene also finds that she has seen the pendant that Markus was trying to get, when she was a child. In order to find out why Markus was after the pendant, she sought out Andreas Tanis.
Tanis told her the truth about her family's slaughter, they were killed after Lucian began his revolution to keep William from being freed, and revealed to her that, contrary to popular belief, Markus, not Viktor, is the original vampire.
He then set up a meeting for her and Michael with Alexander Corvinus , Markus's father and the first true immortal.
Selene was angered at Alexander for not removing the threat his sons, Markus and William , posed long ago.
Alexander retorted by asking her if she would murder her own son. An interruption by Markus, in which Michael is seemingly killed, also results in Selene's memories of the fortress to be revealed to Markus through her blood.
Alexander, dying from his son's attack, told Selene that the only way to defeat Markus and William would be to drink his legendary immortal blood, adding that she would become "The Future".
Selene gained greater strength and new powers from Alexander's blood. She and a squad of Alexander's Cleaners, who, like Michael, are Alexander's descendants through his third son, invaded William's dungeon, trying to stop the threat.
They arrived too late, however, and Selene was forced to fight Markus. Markus was shocked at the smell of his father's blood coursing through Selene's veins.
Locking Markus in William's dungeon, Selene discovered that William had infected all surviving members of the six Cleaners escorting her, all of which have become Lycans themselves.
When it crashed, the rotors continued to spin dangerously close to those in the fray. Selene fought Markus once more, and the Elder drove his wing talon through Selene's chest.
Selene, empowered by Alexander's ancient and pure blood, tore away the talon and drove it upwards through Markus's skull before throwing him into the moving rotor blades and killing him.
After Selene defeats Markus and Michael defeats William, sunlight lands on Selene's arm, revealing that Alexander's blood has purged the vampiric weakness to sunlight.
Selene briefly appears at the end of Underworld: Rise of the Lycans , which was also the opening scene of the first Underworld , with the audio from the scene where Kraven tells Selene that it was Viktor who murdered her family, rather than the Lycans, and that Viktor spared her because she reminded him of the daughter he condemned to death; Selene replies to Kraven, "Lies".
In Underworld: Awakening , Selene escapes imprisonment to find herself in a world where humans have discovered the existence of both Vampire and Lycan clans, and are conducting an all-out war to eradicate both immortal species.
Despite their never having met or become acquainted with one another since Eve's birth, Selene ultimately bonds with her daughter. Selene battles to rescue Eve and Michael, facing a 'Super Lycan', with abilities similar to her own including incredible healing rate and an immunity to silver.
Eventually Selene kills the Super Lycan, and rescues Eve, who kills the Lycan doctor in charge, but when they go to rescue Michael whom Selene had found and weakened the cryogenic tank of earlier , they find that he has already escaped and are unable to locate him, but Selene knows he will be hunted like Eve was.
Earlier in the film David offers her the opportunity to return to the vampire coven, in hopes she will consent to train a new generation of Death Dealers in response to both the human and Lycan threats, as many of their numbers are either in hiding from their enemies or dead.
Following the events of Awakening , Selene sends Eve away for her own safety with not even Selene knowing where she is. Selene keeps a lock of Eve's hair in remembrance and is hunted by the Lycans for Eve's location and the Vampires as a traitor for killing the Vampire Elder Viktor.
In response to the threat posed by new Lycan leader Marius, the Vampire Council agrees to grant Selene clemency in exchange for Selene training their Death Dealers to fight this new threat.
David eventually convinces Selene to take the offer, but she is betrayed by Council member Semira and her lover Death Dealer Varga as Semira desires revenge for Viktor's death and mostly covets Selene's power for herself.
With the help of David and Thomas, Selene escapes, but not before at least a litre of her blood is drained and Thomas killed.
Selene meets Nordic warrior, Lena, who shows her the Nordic Coven's cocooning process, a process that enables them to access the "special place" between worlds and enhance their abilities.
Shortly afterwards, Marius and his Lycans attack the Coven and Selene is defeated. Marius learns from Selene's blood memories that she truly does not know where Eve is and remembering that Lena told her the cocooning process starts with the Vampire submerging themselves in water, Selene submerges herself in a frozen lake.
She is later retrieved by David and Lena and cocooned properly. During the Lycan attack on the Eastern Coven, Selene returns with her powers enhanced by the cocooning, wearing the coat of a member of the Nordic Coven and with her hair having turned partially white.
Selene leads the Nordic Vampires to the aid of the Eastern Coven and battles Marius, learning from his blood memories that he murdered her lover Michael and is using his blood to temporarily increase his own abilities believing that Eve's blood will make this permanent.
Selene uses her new speed to get behind Marius and rip out his spine, killing him. David is then able to use Marius' head to get the remaining Lycans to retreat.
Following the battle, Selene helps to treat the injured Vampires wounds and is elected one of the new Vampire Elders, alongside David and Lena, making Selene one of the three new leaders of the entire Vampire race.
In a flash forward, it is revealed that Selene was reunited with Eve while at the Nordic Coven. Selene is proficient with many weapons, medieval and modern.
She is well versed with both projectile and melee weapons. Modern firearms that she uses include the Walther P99 and a variety of fully automatic machine pistols.
Selene is also an expert in unarmed combat. In Blood Wars , Selene's combat skills are stated to be "second to none.
As a vampire, Selene frequently demonstrates superior physical abilities. After absorbing the Corvinus strain directly from Alexander Corvinus, Selene's powers were greatly upgraded.
Following her use of the Nordic Coven's sacred ritual, Selene's already incredible powers were greatly enhanced. Selene is stated to be "the Purest Vampire" due to having Alexander Corvinus' blood and is one of the most powerful, if not the most powerful Vampire at the time of Blood Wars.
Selene appears in the video game Underworld: The Eternal War. Selene is the third-person shooter throughout the missions.
In 's Underworld , Kate Beckinsale became known as an actor and stated that it was markedly different from her previous work and Beckinsale has said she was grateful for the change of pace after appearing in "a bunch of period stuff and then a bunch of romantic comedies.
In September , shortly after the release of Underworld , production companies Screen Gems and Lakeshore planned to release a prequel as the third film following Underworld ' s sequel, Underworld: Evolution.
Kate Beckinsale, who portrayed Selene in Underworld , expressed interest in reprising her role for the sequel and the prequel. In , Beckinsale reprised her role as Selene in the successful vampire sequel Underworld: Evolution , directed by her husband.
We both envisaged a situation where it would be kind of like trying to get her into a snow suit. She suddenly became highly professional In a June interview, When asked if Kate Beckinsale would reprise her role as Selene in the prequel, Wiseman said, "It will be in the time period before, but it will overlap into the creation of her as well.
We're in the process of seeing how far we go with that. In the actual film, Selene appears briefly at the end.
Beckinsale did not film new footage, a scene from Underworld was used to bookend the film. Beckinsale also provided a monologue for the beginning of the film.
Beckinsale returned to the role of Selene for the fourth installment of the vampire franchise Underworld: Awakening.
Otherwise, it really is just lots of explosions and people running around in tight clothes. Selene is responsible for the death of renegade Lycan Leyba, tracking her down after Leyba's forces attack a Lycan weapons deal and are responsible for the deaths of both the Lycans and another member of Selene's team.
During the confrontation with Leyba, Leyba briefly reflects that Selene's eyes are like 'hers' Sonja's , but Selene never learns the meaning of this comment before she kills Leyba.
Leyba's goals remain a mystery to Selene. Selene is portrayed as having the same characterization as seen in the film.
Selene also appears in the sequel novelization series for Underworld: Evolution. The only novelization series of Underworld she hasn't appear in is the novelization for Underworld: Rise of the Lycans.
Though the first film received generally negative reviews from critics, several elements were praised by audiences and a number of reviewers, including the "icy English composure" in Kate Beckinsale 's performance as Selene.
A few scenes of Underworld: Evolution were shown in a panel at Comic-Con in San Diego , in July ; however, these scenes did not contain any plot spoilers of the new script, with attendees only being informed about the new hybrids by production designer Patrick Tatopoulos.
The previewing was well-received as hundreds of fans waited hours to see a clip of the film as well as Kate Beckinsale and the other stars of the movie.
In a review for Underworld: Awakening , a top critic from Variety said "Once again, Beckinsale brings an impressive physicality and subzero cool to her portrayal of Selene".
Due to the impact of the films, action figures for Selene were created, all designed by Mezco.
They all come with display base and accessories. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For other uses, see Selene disambiguation.
