Debicki, known for her roles in movies like The Great Gatsby and the mini-series The Night Manager, is playing a villain in the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel. She’s taking on the role of Ayesha, a gold-colored being sometimes simply known as “Her.”
It’s a bizarre world to find oneself in, and Elizabeth Debicki herself never expected it.
“I was someone who never thought they would be in a Marvel film,” she said. “Now so many incredible actors are signing up to do comic films.”
She even found herself in one room with her favorites. “Recently I was in a room with Tilda Swinton, Brie Larson and Benedict Cumberbatch at Comic-Con,” she added. “I feel actors understand there are really excellent characters to play in these films.”
