Jessica Alba was shocked when she got asked to star in the 'Sin City' sequel.

The brunette beauty has reprised her role as stripper Nancy Callahan in new movie 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' - a follow up to the 2005 original - and while she was surprised that the call finally came, she was always hopeful a sequel would be made.

Speaking to Loaded magazine, she said: ''I know that a lot of the fans had given up hope of it ever happening but I never did.

''Even so, I was still surprised when I got the call that it was all set.

''I just think it's incredible what Robert [Rodriguez, director] and Frank [Miller, comic book artist] do - it's just genius. To go from those drawings by Frank to these movies is amazing to see.''

The star is also glad she has been able to explore her character in greater detail in the follow up movie.

Jessica added: ''I was just a kid when we did the first one. That was what really launched my career so it will always be very special to me.

''But with this one, I felt like I was able to really make a contribution, to be more a part of the whole artistic experience.

''It was fascinating to play this whole other side to a character that I thought I knew.''
