Kristen Stewart Armored In 'Snow White And The Huntsman' Set Pics (PHOTOS)

"I wasn't initially jumping at the chance [to play Snow White]," Kristen Stewart told Comic-Con this summer. Then, she read the script for "Snow White and the Huntsman," and realized that this was no ordinary princess. Instead, she's a tough girl, bent on revenge. Another selling point, she said, was, "I get to have a sword and stuff."

She wasn't kidding.

Starring in a new take on the fairy tale that sees her team up with would be assassin-turned-mentor Chris Hemsworth to take down Evil Queen Charlize Theron, Stewart has been getting plenty of action-packed acting opportunities. Photos captured on the set of show Stewart in full armor, galloping on a horse along the beach alongside some serious looking soldiers.
