The Prince Of Persia star will be shooting Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters in Berlin, where she plays the titular female character, alongside Jeremy Renner as her on-screen sibling, and she predicts she may miss home comforts.

"I'm going to be there for three months, so I'm worried I'll get homesick - this will be the first time I'm away from home for a long time," she told the Evening Standard.

However, she's not fussed about fitting into German life, despite not being fluent in the language.

"I don't speak German but I get the gist of what they're saying. It was always my favourite language in school," she added.

In the modern-day comedy-action adaptation of the Brothers Grimm's fairytale, set for release in 2012, the siblings have turned into bounty hunters who hunt down witches.
