LOVE AND MONSTERS Star Ariana Greenblatt Reveals Secrecy Surrounding AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Role - EXCLUSIVE
Ariana Greenblatt had a small, but memorable role in Avengers: Infinity War as the young Gamora, and the lengths Marvel Studios went to in order to keep her part a secret will definitely surprise you...
Love and Monsters premieres at home and in select theaters on October 16th from Paramount Pictures, and takes place seven years after the "Monsterpocalypse." Humanity has been forced to hide underground, but Joel (Dylan O'Brien) decides to embark on a dangerous mission to reunite with his high school girlfriend Aimee (Jessica Henwick) after reconnecting with her over the radio. However, with dangerous monsters standing in his way, their reunion isn't going to be an easy one.
We'll bring you the full interview tomorrow, but while we had the chance to speak to the actress, we had to ask about what it was like to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the 2018 Marvel Studios release. As you might expect, it was an incredibly secretive experience.
"I didn't know anything!" Greenblatt admitted. "For the auditions, they gave me fake sides so the names were all different, the scene structure and lines were all different too. We definitely knew the bare minimum, and on set, they were super, super secretive. We didn't get the script, and only got the sides I was on for the day which I found interesting. Every time I had to leave my dressing room, they had this huge black umbrella with curtains around it and I had to walk underneath that so no one would take a picture and see what I looked like. It was a crazy experience, but also super cool."
As for what it was like to work with Josh Brolin (Thanos) and Avengers: Infinity War directors Joe and Anthony Russo, Greenblatt had nothing but good things to say about all of them.
"Josh was amazing," she told us. "He's such a great person and behind the scenes, we would do pranks on random people which was so fun and now that's something we have. I really hope I can see him again. The Russo Brothers were so brilliant and have such a great vision for everything they do which was such an amazing opportunity to be a part of."
Despite having only a small role in the MCU, Greenblatt made a memorable impact, and her scenes resonated with fans in a huge way.
We'll have more from the actress later today, but in the meantime, you can check out an exclusive clip from the upcoming Love and Monsters below:
