Tell me about your role in Marvel.
The description of the role in the breakdown called for an “old school, tough, mistrustful, hot headed detective”.
What attracted you to the role?
The description!! I love playing this type of character. She’s real and authentic !
How did you prepare for it?
I studied my lines intensely and delivered them a million different ways to myself in a mirror just to get the words in my head and body so that it would come across as naturally as possible. Plus I thought about real life experiences I’ve had that made me act hotheaded and mistrustful and drew from those memories when I was performing.
What do you hope people like about it?
I hope people identify with a detective who is old school and appreciate her candor and find humor in her attitude.
What are some memorable moments from filming?
Learning how to draw a gun. Fake guns, of course. It’s very hard and a bit scary! I give officers lots of credit! But the trainers were patient and professional. It was a totally new experience and I’ll never forget it.
What was it like working with your cast/crew?
Amazing!! The entire team from the PAs to the directors to the stars were incredibly smart, humble, helpful and lots of fun!! I felt so blessed to have worked with such wonderful people.
