What’s your char­ac­ter’s re­la­tion­ship with Stephen Strange? i play an er trauma doc­tor who spe­cialises in tho­racic surgery, at the metropoli­tan Hos­pi­tal in New york City. stephen is a very fa­mous, suc­cess­ful neu­ro­sur­geon at the same hos­pi­tal that she works at. they are for­mer boyfriend and girl­friend when we pick up in the story. so we start at the end of their re­la­tion­ship, which is a lit­tle bit dif­fer­ent. it’s not a clas­sic love story, which i thought was re­ally clever.

Did you re­search your char­ac­ter in the comic books? i read a few of the comics. scott Der­rick­son, the di­rec­tor, pointed me to­wards “the Oath” in par­tic­u­lar. He thought that would be the most help­ful for my char­ac­ter. she’s not re­ally in the su­per­hero world yet in this one. she’s very much in the real world, in the hos­pi­tal and in doc­tor land. For me it was in­ter­est­ing to get to know strange in terms of the comics and see where my char­ac­ter might po­ten­tially be headed.

What does a cast like this do for a Mar­vel project? it just el­e­vates ev­ery­thing and be­ing able to work with all those amaz­ing ac­tors raises the bar and al­lows the au­di­ence to buy into things more and sus­pend their dis­be­lief. tilda looks in­cred­i­ble as the an­cient One. she’s re­ally ex­traor­di­nary. you can’t take your eyes off of her and the same with Bene­dict. His trans­for­ma­tion into strange is re­ally ex­traor­di­nary.
