'Fast & Furious 6' Brings Blonde to the Mix with Model Clara Paget
There haven't been very many roles for blondes in the Fast & Furious franchise with Jordana Brewster, Eva Mendes and Michelle Rodriguez taking the more prominent female roles. Hell, even Gina Carano is another brunette taking a prominent role in the new film. But the lack of blonde female fare changes with the sixth installment of the franchise, simply called Fast & Furious 6 for now, as Baz Bamigboye (via The Playlist) reveals that model Clara Paget has landed a role in the sequel as Vegh, who is described as "a gun-slinging action woman." It's sort of a sidekick role, and I'm betting it's with our fast-driving thieves too.
It would make sense since the law side of the equation has Ms. Carano bringing more bad ass flare to the series. Meanwhile, Luke Evans is taking the role of the villain in the film. Of course, the plot is still being kept under wraps, though we know the team is heading to Europe this time for some action, and apparently one scene involves blowing up an oil tanker in Piccadilly Circus (a replica of the real-life location has been built to allow this). This will be Paget's most high profile role to date as she previously appeared in Johnny English Reborn and One Day. Hopefully she's more than just a pretty face and chiseled body in this franchise, even though the series has proven the ability to act is not a prerequisite for joining the cast.
