Behind the scenes
- Miller was unhappy with Hasbro's first pass at her action figure, and had Hasbro re-do a part of the likeness. The part? The figure's behind.
- Rachel Nichols burned herself, and Miller sprained her wrist, while shooting a fight scene between Scarlett and the Baroness.
- To prepare for her role as the Baroness, Sienna Miller spent four months in weight training and boxing, and learned to fire live ammunition.
- Miller took the role of the Baroness because it did not involve "having a breakdown, or addicted to heroin, or dying at the end; it was something that was just maybe really great fun."
