Although most of the action sequences in J2: J Retribusi are performed by leading man Zul Ariffin, model-actress Amelia Henderson still had to undergo physical training as part of the preparation process.

“My character doesn’t really have many action sequences in the film,” said Henderson during a virtual press conference.

In J Retribusi, Henderson plays hotel employee Amy, who is a bit of a perfectionist caught in the middle of chaos when a group of terrorists takes over the hotel.

“But I did do a little bit of action where I hit some people, which I found very fun.”

It is the physicality aspect of J Retribusi that made participating in the movie even more unforgettable for the 25-year-old, other than the fact that this is her first leading role in a Malaysian film.

“The whole experience was really fun because the team is really good. It was the first time ever that I got to film action scenes so it’s a very memorable project for me.”

J Retribusi is the sequel to the 2017 hit film J Revolusi featuring Zul’s character Jay Zulkarnain, an elite special force soldier.

Henderson’s character makes her first appearance in the the second movie that’s available on Disney+ Hotstar.
