Los Angeles, Jan 9 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Actress Kate Beckinsale has indicated that she does not enjoy playing characters that are instantly liked by viewers. The star’s latest project is Underworld Awakening where she plays the role of Selene, a vampire hunter.

Speaking to Manhattan Magazine, Kate revealed that, “I’m not attracted to characters who are instantly likeable, nor am I that interested in making them likeable.
