Teyonah Parris, best known for appearing on the TV series Mad Men and Spike Lee’s Chi-Raq, recently made her debut with WandaVision in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. She plays the role of the adult Monica Rambeau. The character was played by Akira Akbar as a child in Captain Marvel.
It’s not yet clear how Monica fits into WandaVision, a mix of MCU and classic sitcoms. Monica in Comics was the second Captain Marvel after the original, and has also taken on other roles such as Photon and Pulsar.
In this exclusive chat with socialmediagossips.com, Teyonah Parris talks about the cast in WandaVision, her character and working with Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany.
Excerpts from the conversation:
Question: How did you react when you were cast in the role? Did you immediately agree?
I didn’t know what to audition for. I knew it was for Marvel, but I had no idea what character it was for. So I found out I got the part before I knew what the part was. So I was definitely like, okay, good, great. I got the part. What’s the part? And then I found out it was Monica Rambeau. I said, “Oh my god, I definitely want to tell this story.”
Question: What did you see in this particular character that made you investigate that role?
What I love about Monica Rambeau is how brave she is, how ambitious she is, how apologetic she is to take up space and be herself. And so I really wanted to be able to follow in the footsteps of someone who moves through the world this way.
Question: May you talk a little about how Monica fits into WandaVision? Where was she all this time?
I can say that WandaVision will fill some of the void that has appeared since we last saw Monica as a kid. As the show progresses, you will learn what happened to her. You will learn how it has grown and where it is now in your life.
Question: What’s next for Monica? I hope she becomes the next Captain Marvel like in the comics when Carol finally retires.
I don’t know what’s going to happen. Monica has held the title of Captain Marvel in the comics. In fact, she was the first woman to do this. The MCU is a separate organism. Who knows what’s gonna happen But I can say that Monica will team up with Captain Marvel and Mrs. Marvel. So that’s going to happen in Captain Marvel 2, so we can look forward to it.
Question: How was the experience with Elizabeth and Paul?
Paul and Elizabeth were so amazing. I feel really blessed to have been able to join the MCU alongside these two very experienced vets who were generally just very open and friendly socialmediagossips. I learned a lot from them. And it was just nice to be with them. I’m really glad socialmediagossips will see them. This show allows them to take a bit of the reins, go deep and explore their love story and relationship.
