Exclusive : Samara Weaving on her “bucket list” role as Scarlett in Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins!

The Australian actress stars alongside Henry Weaving in the G.I. Joe spinoff, available now on digital.

In celebration of the release of Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins on digital platforms, we’ve got an exclusive look into Shana O’Hara / Scarlett from the actress herself, Samara Weaving!

Originally played by Rachel Nichols in 2009’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, the mantel of Scarlett has now been taken up by the Aussie star who’s taken Hollywood by storm in recent years, with major roles in films like Ready or Not, Guns Akimbo and Bill & Ted Face the Music.

In the clip, Weaving explores Scarlett’s relationship to Henry Golding’s Snake Eyes, who leads this origin story for the infamous G.I. Joe character, as well as the nostalgia behind her decision to join the hop aboard the franchise.


Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins stars Henry Golding as Snake Eyes, a tenacious loner who is welcomed into an ancient Japanese clan called the Arashikage after saving the life of their heir apparent. Upon arrival in Japan, the Arashikage teach Snake Eyes the ways of the ninja warrior while also providing something he’s been longing for: a home. But, when secrets from his past are revealed, Snake Eyes’ honor and allegiance will be tested – even if that means losing the trust of those closest to him. Based on the iconic G.I. Joe character, Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins also stars Andrew Koji as Storm Shadow, Úrsula Corberó as Baroness, Samara Weaving as Scarlett, Haruka Abe as Akiko, Takehiro Hira as Kenta and Iko Uwais as Hard Master.
