Nichols will be playing Tamara, a beautiful and studious girl who has lived her life at a monastery. All that book learning and praying hasn't stopped her from becoming a master of martial arts, and bodyguard to an endangered queen. After Singh storms their hiding place and separates the Queen from her bodyguards, Tamara is determined to find and rescue her. Luckily, she meets a fellow who has exactly the same goal, and who is happy to align weapons with her. If you're thinking "I bet they align something else too, ha ha!", well, you'd be right.
Every Conan story needs a badass warrior chick, so I'm glad they've got one. Nichols certainly fired up the fanboys as Scarlett in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra so I'm sure a few will pop in to see her in action. I imagine she'll be wearing something tight and midriff-baring just for that purpose. No one needs body armor in Conan's world.
