Michelle Rodriguez Doesn't Want To Resurrect Her Avatar Character In Sequels.

Michelle Rodriguez has said she has no interest in coming back to reprise her Avatar character, Trudy, in a future film in the sci-fi series. Speaking to Vanity Fair, Rodriguez said director James Cameron told her that he was thinking about bringing Rodriguez back to the Avatar series, but she isn't down to play Trudy again.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, Rodriguez explained that Cameron had actually asked her to return to the franchise when it came time to work on the sequels.

"Dude, when I saw Jim Cameron recently, he was like, 'I was thinking, What if Michelle came back?' A lot of the other characters came back in 'The Way of Water'," she recalled.

It's a very good offer, but Rodriguez didn't want to spoil the legacy her character had left behind with her death in the original movie.

Responding to Cameron, Rodriguez said: "I was like, 'You can't do that - I died as a martyr.'"

As Rodriguez alluded to, The Way of Water already features the return of two other actors whose characters were killed off in the first film. Stephen Lang's Col. Quaritch is brought back as a Recombinant (a human-Na'vi hybrid), while Sigourney Weaver plays a Na'vi teenager via motion capture (after portraying a human scientist the first time around).

Rodriguez can next be seen as barbarian thief Holga Kilgore in Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, in theaters March 31. The movie also stars Chris Pine, Hugh Grant, Justice Smith, Sophia Lillis, and Regé-Jean Page.
