Meet the new Mummy! 

You probably know Sofia Boutella from her scene-stealing turns in both Kingsman: The Secret Service (2014) and Star Trek Beyond (2016). Now she's stepping into the shoes (and wrapping in the bandages) of one of cinema's most iconic monsters in The Mummy.

Interestingly enough, Sofia's performance was most influenced by Boris Karloff, who played the Mummy in the 1932 Universal classic. Sofia was impressed with the elegance, grace and sense of romance that Karloff brought to the role, which she was inspired to bring to her own incarnation.

Also, what's Sofia's all-time favorite monster? Find out in the interview below!
