Who Would Win In a Fight Between ‘Fast & Furious 6′ Stars Gina Carano and Luke Evans?
Fast & Furious 6 has much more than just cars and chicks — there’s fistfights, too.
In the latest installment of illustrious speed-addicted franchise, there’s two newcomers throwing down in the streets: Luke Evans’ tech-savvy baddie, Owen Shaw, and Gina Carano’s badass federal agent, Riley. But if the two actors were to tussle in real life, Evans has no doubt who would come out victorious.
Though she’s too humble to confess she could take Evans down, Carano’s career speaks for itself: the former MMA fighter held a 7-1 record before stepping out of the ring to try out acting. And even as a child, Carano had a natural penchant for putting her fists up.
“I definitely have these violent fantasies that happen when someone is rude,” Carano said. “I used to be sitting there in school and, oh man, if I didn’t like my teacher, I’d just be kicking them in my head and doing all sorts of awful things to them. I was like, ‘wow, this is a kind of a little psychotic.'”
While Carano shares Riley’s knack butt-kicking, Evans isn’t quite so similar to his character.
“He’s a 21st century villain. He’s not the quintessential British guy that you usually see playing a bad guy,” Evans explained. “He has a shaved head, he wears cool clothes, he has fast cars, he’s very, very rich. I loved playing him. I thought it was such a great role. I wish I were a bit more like him, to be honest. If I could just imbue some of his coolness.”
