- William Fichtner comments on working with Milla on Ultraviolet: "Milla is unbelievable. She has an inner torque, she is a super hero. I don't think anyone could have played her part better than she did, she was unbelievable, just like in Joan of Arc. She has such a commitment. I play Garth, a super-techie guy who is taken with Milla's character, but she is one notch above the ladder for him. I play a good guy this time, and I think that no matter what other roles I ever might portray for Kurt Wimmer, he will always ask me to play good, underground guys." (full article)
