‘Ms. Marvel’ Star Iman Vellani Reveals the MCU Actor That Gave Her the Most Advice
With the highly-anticipated series arriving at the Disney exclusive streaming platform in just a few weeks, Ms. Marvel herself, Iman Vellani, spoke about the MCU actor that gave her the most advice.
To imagine the pressure that must come from entering the Marvel Cinematic Universe as an actor is nearly unfathomable; imagining that same pressure as a young person is even more terrifying.
That is the exact predicament that the MCU’s newest young star finds themselves in, as Iman Vellani has entered the Marvel Universe in this lauded and tremendous Phase Four.
Not only does the young actor find herself now inheriting a role in the massive and ever-expanding universe, but she also does so while playing one of the most beloved characters in the entire Marvel Comics Universe, Kamala Khan
Kamala is a character whose popularity and adoration have only grown in recent years, while quickly becoming a fan favorite hero for this generation of Marvel fans.
With the daunting task of joining the MCU, the young Iman Vellani recently spoke to the MCU Actor who gave her the most advice.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Vellani stated, ” Brie’s held my hand throughout this process, Teyonah has been so wonderful,” while Star-Lord himself, Chris Pratt, “made himself so available” to the young actor.
Vellani noted, “I shot him an email asking about press and stuff and he sent me this juggernaut of an email with so much advice and has gotten him through this.”
It is interesting to consider the trajectory of Chris Pratt’s immensely successful career, which first set the course because of his casting in the original Guardians of the Galaxy film.
If anyone understands the astronomical change that success in the film industry can bring it’s Pratt, and thinking that he bestowed a lot of that knowledge and advice to the young performer is just incredible.
We cannot wait to see Vellani finally embrace her role as Kamala Khan; as she seems primed to be one of the MCU’s most beloved new additions.
