Olivia Wilde on Inspiration and Empowerment in ‘Tron: Legacy’

Before December 17, 2010, "Tron" was best known as an anachronistic science-fiction odyssey, and Olivia Wilde a budding starlet earning her career bona fides via supporting turns on TV and in smaller films. But after the release of "Tron: Legacy," both preconceptions are destined to change; the film is a sequel, companion piece, and franchise-starter all in one, while Wilde is its biggest scene-stealer, playing an ass-kicking heroine named Quorra who seems as likely to kill opponents with kindness as with a weapon. And it’s this pastiche of accomplishments (by the film and the actress herself) that seems likely to catapult Wilde’s visibility squarely into the mainstream, where she can continue kicking ass in an increasingly wider variety of roles.
