If you think pairing Lo with a professional fighter and a former WWE Heavyweight Champion would be a bit of miscasting, think again. Lo is a highly-trained martial arts expert with over 16 years of experience behind her, and she actually worked with fight choreographers on Scorpion King 3 in fleshing out even bigger and more ambitious fighting sequences than what was already planned out for her.
Dread Central spoke with Lo during the recent press day for Battle for Redemption and heard more from the British-born actress about integrating her martial arts expertise into her role in the sequel,

The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption continues the story of warrior Mathayus (originally played by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, then Michael Copon and now played by Victor Webster) who is now a deadly assassin… Despatched by the King of Egypt, Horus (Pearlman) to protect his ally King Ramusan, in return for his services Mathayus is offered Ramusan’s daughter Silda’s hand in marriage, as well as the legendary Eye of the Gods medallion which imparts extraordinary supernatural powers to its wearer. However, all is not so simple. In order to redeem his reward, Mathayus must show his strength and courage by rescuing Princess Silda who is being held captive by Horus’ scheming brother Talus (Billy Zane).
