Actress Nicole Kidman says she said yes to the offer of playing Queen Atlanta in Aquaman because she wanted to work with James Wan. The 49-year-old star says the filmmaker is her good friend and she could not say no the offer of playing a mermaid warrior, reported Entertainment Weekly.

“The reason why I love (Aquaman) is James Wan is an Australian, and I’ve followed his career since he started. He’s a really good friend of mine, and he offered to let me play Queen Atlanta. As soon as he said I could wear mother-of-pearl and be a mermaid warrior, I said I’m done. Please. If there is one thing I have to do in my life, I have to be that. Because, you’ve got to have some fun,” Kidman says.
