Fans of the game have constantly asked when Claire Redfield’s brother Chris would be making an appearance in the movie franchise. Popular in the video game, Chris is depicted as a bad-ass, muscular warrior in fatigues. Wentworth Miller is taking on the role with gusto, despite some early fears that he couldn’t match up to the lore surrounding Chris’ character.

“The first thing I didn’t do is Google Chris Redfield,” says Wentworth. “But I did Google pictures of him, and went to a lot of different fansites. I remember thinking, ‘If what I’m seeing is an accurate representation, this guy is straight from the WWF!’ His arms were the size of tree trunks, and I only had 4 weeks to prepare for this movie! They say that ignorance is bliss – which I think in this case is a good thing. I went into filming a blank slate. I hadn’t seen the movies, never played the video games. But I quickly became aware of a rabid, huge fan base for the movies, the video games and this specific character. I wanted to proceed with respect.”

As for his interaction on-screen with Claire, the brother-sister dynamic is going to add another dimension to the film. “Chris and Claire together bring something particularly special and significant to ‘Resident Evil,'” says Wentworth. “They represent a familial bond, which is something everyone in the audience can invest in and relate to. The audience can therefore root for and understand these two.”

Onscreen sister Ali Larter agrees. “When the film opens, you’ll see that Claire has made it through on her survival instincts alone,” she says. “You’re also going to see her reunite with her brother, which I think viewers will enjoy. To bring depth and emotion into a sci-fi film is very important… It’s not some weepy reunion, but you get glimpses of humanity and relationships.”
