New Delhi [India], Sept. 27 (ANI): After enthralling her fans with her killer action in American thriller series 'Quantico', Priyanka Chopra is all set to show her dark side in her Hollywood debut 'Baywatch'.

Looking all excited to turn into a baddie and talking about her character Victoria in the film, PeeCee said "She is extremely feminine, very evil, extremely delectable, manipulative and patronizing, which is not at all Alex (her character from Quantico). These are completely different people," reports Interview Magazine

"Victoria is strong because she has minions. She has people do her dirty work. She doesn't look at how to get results, she just gets them. She doesn't have morality. But also ... it's a comedy," added the 34-year-old actress.

Speaking about the experience of portraying a negative character, the 'Mary Kom' star said, "It was so much fun to be able to create Victoria in Baywatch. It was awesome to bring that black evilness into their positive, beautiful world."

Talking about how it was working with director Seth Gordon, she said, "It was so much fun. Seth Gordon, the director, is huge a collaborator, and same with Josh Safran, for that matter, on Quantico-I've been very fortunate that the people I've worked with have been such collaborators when it comes to my characters."

Adding, "It wasn't ever difficult being Victoria, it was just creating. And the joy of creating is the truest joy. I don't enjoy being told what to do, I'm not that kind of actor, I'm a thinking actor. I need to work with people who have the ability to do that. Both Seth and Josh really have a sense of belief in what I bring to the table. I'm very grateful that they have that in me."

On a related note, ' Baywatch,' alongside Dwayne Johnson and will hit the cinemas on May 19. (ANI)
