In addition to replicating the Osama bin Laden raid on the big screen, the big challenge in making "Zero Dark Thirty (2012)" was impersonating the real-life characters who were involved in the great hunt to the movie. Jessica Chastain opened up that she must tackle a very difficult task after getting cast as Maya, the strong female character who led the hunt of the al Qaeda leader.

"I had three months before we started shooting that I went to 'school' for it I guess," Chastain recalled. "I nicknamed [screenwriter] Mark [Boal] 'The Professor,' and I'd sit with him and go through the screenplay and ask a lot of questions about the character I was playing, about the CIA. I did some reading. Two books I found particularly helpful were 'The Looming Towers' and Michael Scheuer's book on Osama bin Laden."
