Actress Lashana Lynch who played the character of Maria Rambeau in Captain Marvel shared that she has auditioned for several roles in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Captain Maria Rambeau is a single mother and a former United States Air Force pilot. She is the best friend of Carol Danvers. Maria played an important role in Danvers’ journey and provided a connection to her life on Earth.
Lashana Rasheda Lynch is a British actress known for her role in the period drama series Still Star-Crossed as Rosaline on ABC. Later she appeared in Captain Marvel. Lynch started her career in acting with the drama film Fast Girls in 2012. She also co-starred in the TV film The 7.39 on the BBC. The actress worked in many TV projects, including BBC comedy Crims, Death in Paradise, and Silent Witness. Fans will also witness the great actress as Nomi in the James Bond movie No Time to Die, scheduled for April 2021.
The British actress has become a star right now. However, she got her breakthrough role in Marvel as Rosaline Capulet. Lynch has come far from where she has started. Currently, she is collaborating with some big-budget projects and nailing all the roles with her fantastic performance. During an interview with Britain’s GQ, the actress talked about her role and shared her journey to Captain Marvel. She said that she had been giving auditions and making self tape for years. The casting director Sarah Finn knew her from her audition tape. She has recorded many audition videos for big and small characters for Black Panther. However, she did not disclose the character’s name as she has friends in the project.
Lynch’s co-star Brie Larson has faced similar audition history in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Larson also shared that she had auditioned for many MCU films, including Thor and Iron Man 2. However, the two actresses might not share any overlap, but it is hard to know for which part Lynch was up for. In the movie Black Panther, there are three essential characters around Lynch’s age group: Shuri (played by actress Letitia Wright), Okoye (played by Danai Gurira), and Nakia (played by Lupita Nyong’o). It is possible that the actress might have auditioned for these roles. The actress might also have shared her self-tape for other minor roles for the project. Lynch revealed that she has tried to get a role in Avengers and Venom.
Lynch is an amazing actress, and MCU might have taken a little extra time to cast the talented actress, but fans are glad she did the remarkable character of Maria Rambeau. No one can now imagine the role other than Lynch’s face. The audience is glad the actress did not stop auditioning after so many setbacks. Lynch shared she never doubted herself when she missed out on the previous opportunities in the MCU. The incredible woman taught a lesson through her journey to every aspiring actor. Fans are impatiently waiting for her next projects.
