Jada Pinkett Smith originally auditioned for role of Trinity in The Matrix

Apart from being “in a warehouse of pain” from all the wirework and flips and such, Jada Pinkett Smith said that her character Niobi “hangs with Trinity.” In fact, Smith had auditioned quite a bit to try and snag the role of Trinity in the first film, she says, back when Val Kilmer was set to play Morpheus.
