Last year we were fortunate enough to get in touch with the lovely, beautiful and talented actress, Emma Booth, who starred alongside Jason Statham in “Parker.” She kindly agreed to answer our questions about working with our favorite Brit and her life in the film business.
JStatham.com Team: What a pleasure to chat with you, Emma. We adored you in “Parker,” you did a wonderful job and your onscreen chemistry with Jason was electrifying. Can you tell us a bit more about the casting process and how you ended up with the role of Claire?
Emma Booth: I actually sent in an audition from Australia for Parker. I then got asked to fly myself over for a chemistry test with Jason. It was a lot of fun!!!
JS Team: What was it like working with Jason? Was he someone that made you feel comfortable right from the start?
EB: Jason is awesome to work with. He made me feel very comfortable and confident! He’s a great guy. He does what he does in front of a camera really well.

In August 2011, Hollywood made its way to St. Charles Parish Hospital in Luling, Louisiana, to film the infamous hospital scene with Jason Statham. Naturally, the hospital staff was more than excited to be in the presence of Hollywood’s Finest and took several souvenir photos, documenting how everything came together before it was shown on the big screen.

Below you can watch a short clip of the hospital scene as seen in the film.
We always love to go behind the scenes of a film production as it allows us to get a better understanding of how much work is involved to film just one scene, and it’s simply fascinating to watch Hollywood make film magic.

“Parker” starring Jason Statham is available now on Blu-ray/DVD and Movies on Demand on Cable. You can also rent and/or buy the Taylor Hackford-directed action film in HD on iTunes or order your copy via Amazon.
