Lauren Ridloff confirms that reshoots on Marvel’s Eternals have already taken place earlier this year.
Due to the wild, cosmic nature of the Eternals, the film has quickly become one of the most interesting upcoming projects from Marvel Studios. Directed by Chloe Zhao, the delayed movie features an extensive cast including Richard Madden, Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek and Lauren Ridloff. Ridloff recently spoke to HeyUGuys about working on the Marvel film and opened up what it was like to work with Jolie.
“Well, Angie, I have to say, she is both gentle and strong. I was so grateful and appreciative to have her there with us because I feel like she really is very aware of what our needs might be. She’s always thinking about the cast. She would ask questions that a lot of us were wondering and she’s the one who stepped forward and asked those questions.”
The Eternals star also discussed when she discovered that she’d been nominated for a BAFTA in the Breakthrough category. The actress recalled that she was working on the second day of the Eternals reshoots earlier in the year when she got the news about her nomination.
