LOS ANGELES, Colo., June 13 (UPI) -- Actress Sela Ward, who plays Dr. Lucy Hall in the U.S. movie "The Day After Tomorrow," calls the film "scary."

"It's scary because it's based on reality, rather than something pure science-fiction," the former star of the television series' "Once and Again" and "Sisters" told the Ladies' Home Journal.

The special-effects thriller shows New York City streets and landmarks being flooded and is considered by many as the most dramatic warning about global warming.

Said ward: "The details are possible: The Antarctic Ice Shield breaks up because of global warming, which starts a chain reaction on the entire climate system, I think it will make everyone pause and say, 'Wow, I'm so happy it was just a movie.' And then, 'Okay, what are we going to do to protect the planet?' "
