Actress Emmy Rossum is known for playing sweet characters, from Laura Chapman in "The Day After Tomorrow" to Christine Daaé in "Phantom of the Opera." But for her upcoming movie "Beautiful Creatures" -- adapted from the "Caster Chronicles" series by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl -- she takes a darker turn, portraying the destructive Siren, Ridley. While fans of the books may be disappointed that Ridley is not the blond punk princess described in the original material, Rossum is confident they'll love the more glamorous version on screen. She spoke to Moviefone about playing a villain for the first time, how she drew inspiration from an ancient goddess for the role and one key scene in the movie that wasn't in the book (and that she couldn't help practicing over and over in her hotel room). Moviefone: It looks like you had a lot of fun playing a Siren. Emmy Rossum: I did! »
