Actress Rose Mcgowan is thrilled to be back on a movie set after taking a two-year hiatus to mourn her father’s death and the end of her romance with moviemaker fiance Robert Rodriguez.
The Grindhouse star will play a villainness in the new Conan The Barbarian remake, and she admits its great to be back in the make-up chair after a couple of tough, emotional years.

She explains, “I took two years off because my father died. I pulled out of three films to deal with it.”

But she can’t wait for fans to see her big comeback in Conan: “I am so impressed by how insane and magnificent I look in the film. I was in prosthetics for five hours each day.

“The whole project was otherworldly and beautiful, and I really loved what was being created. It was nice to feel that way.”
