Los Angeles, Dec 2 (IANS) Actress Jessica Chastain read books on the covert operation to kill Osama bin Laden to prepare for her role in a controversial new film "Zero Dark Thirty".

The actress plays CIA agent Jen, who had a crucial role in tracking bin Laden to a compound in Abottabad, Pakistan, where he was killed on May 2nd, 2011.

"We did extensive research. Books upon books. I read Lawrence Wright's 'The Looming Towers', I read Michael Scheuer's book on Osama bin Laden. I got to know my subject inside out," contactmusic.com quotes Chastain as saying.

Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow's movie has been shrouded in secrecy, with those involved, including the film's stars, director and writer Mark Boal.
