Nielsen who will be playing the character of the celebrated queen of the Amazons in Themyscira and the mother of Wonder Woman, Hippolyta, opened up about her role in an interview with Telegraph, where she said, "It was a lot of fun (smiles). We trained more than six hours a day. I did two hours of weight training, two hours of horseback riding, followed by two hours of sword fighting."
"There were some days when I couldn’t even turn in bed, it was that tough (laughs). And we did that for months together. But it was so spectacular, I loved every minute of it. They made me eat a lot, which I also loved! (Laughs) And then there was the camaraderie. We were 50 women on set together, all talented, incredible athletes and I got to learn so much from them."
