The character poster parade for The Sorcerer’s Apprentice from Walt Disney Studios and Jerry Bruckheimer marches on this week, today presenting magical love interest Veronica (Monica Belluci) who eventually proves to be twice the woman she appears to be.
Veronica is a sorceress who has had the great fortune of being loved by Balthazar Blake—and the misfortune of being loved by Maxim Horvath. “Balthazar and Veronica are willing to do everything for their love,” says Bellucci, “and at the same time they’re two fighters. Horvath, who, like them, was a disciple of Merlin, also falls in love with Veronica. She rejects him for Balthazar, and because of that he betrays them by aligning himself with Morgana. It’s a beautiful and powerful story about love, jealousy and vengeance.”
