As disaster films go, the ground-shaking San Andreas is as much family drama as it is spectacle. Carla Gugino (Watchmen, Sin City) plays Emma, the estranged wife of search and rescue helicopter pilot, Ray (Dwayne Johnson) who survive a massive earthquake in Los Angeles. When it becomes apparent that the quake has triggered a shockwave that travels up the San Andreas fault line, the pair team up to rescue their only daughter, Blake (Alexandra Daddario - the Percy Jackson films) in San Francisco.
DIY sat down with on-screen mother and daughter, Carla Gugino and Alexandra Daddario to chat about stunts, capable female characters and family bonding.
San Andreas is out in cinemas now.
