Actors don't often get to play heroic, awe-inspiring characters, particularly ones that are based on actual people. However, in 'The Whistleblower,' Rachel Weisz was lucky enough to do just that.

In the film, the Oscar-winning actress plays Kathryn Bolkovac, a police officer hired by the UN for a peacekeeping mission in Bosnia, who ends up investigating an underground sex trade that the people on her side are actively participating in.

Weisz recently gave an interview with the Huffington Post, where she discussed her character, why she decided to take the role after initially turning it down and what it was like meeting the actual Kathryn Bolkovac.
