Los Angeles, Nov 14, 2016: Actress Rachel McAdams liked to meditate on the set of “Doctor Strange” by practicing medical stitches.

“My mum was a nursee and I just don’t posess that gene so I was always fascinated. It’s a job that takes so much guts. I shadowed a really great female neurosurgeon in Toronto and one in London, who taught me how to do stitches. It was very meditative, like knitting,” McAdams, who plays Christine Palmer — a doctor — in the film, told LOOK magazine.

She added: “When I was bored on set, I would just pull out my… stitching wire. I don’t even know what it’s called, some doctor I am. But I would practise and it was great to jump into another world.”

One of the actress’ favourite things about her career is getting a chance to take a glimpse at others’ lives and careers in her research for her characters, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

“I think it’s the thing I love most about my job, that you get to live so many lives in one lifetime. I have a bit of ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) when it comes to things, so variety is the spice of life for me,” she said.

But the actress also enjoyed the “weird” experience of working with so much special effects and computer generated imagery.

“When I read one of the scenes, I was simultaneously daunted and excited because it was like nothing I’d ever seen before. It was fresh and different and weird. It was like choreographing a dance. And Benedict was actually there for a lot of it, up on wires, flying around the room for hours on end,” she said. (IANS)

Known for featuring in several social issue-based movies like “Parched” and “Padman”, and for voicing her opinion on issues like menstrual hygiene and women safety, actress Radhika Apte says ultimately it is the story of a film which grabs her attention.

“I did ‘Padman’ not only because of its social message. I did it because it was a good story. I run after good stories. If I did not like the story of ‘Padman’, and if it was imparting the same message, I probably would not have done it.

“I am not here to do films with just social messages. I am an actor. I want to be a part of stories,” Radhika Apte told IANS here.

After riding high on the success of a web show like “Sacred Games” and “Lust Stories”, and a movie like “AndhaDhun”, the 33-year-old actress, who has broken the stereotypical image of Indian heroines by portraying unconventional and bold roles on the big screen, has featured in a mainstream and glamorous role in Gauravv K. Chawla’s just-released “Baazaar”.

In the film, she plays an ambitious city girl who can do anything to achieve success and fame.

“I have not done such mainstream role before this. It was challenging for me as a lot of efforts were put into the glamour portion and style, and it was tough to keep the drama real,” she explained.

Radhika’s versatile performances in her more than a decade-long career has made her stand out.

She said she likes to be surprised and is open to all genres as long as “work is good and challenging”.
