AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Actress Dichen Lachman Would Love To Work On Another Comic Book Project (Exclusive)

Following memorable villainous turns on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Supergirl, it sounds like actress Dichen Lachman would be more than down to rejoin the comic book movie or TV space!

Interviews Opinion

On the heels of starring in Jurassic World: Dominion, the second-highest grossing film of the year, and featuring in Apple TV+'s Severance, one of the most acclaimed dramas of the year, we caught up with actress Dichen Lachman to talk about her roles in both projects, and also got a chance to ask her about a few of her previous parts. 

Lachman is probably best known to comic book movie fans for her villainous roles as Skye's evil mother Jiaying on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. or as Veronica Sinclair, a.k.a. Roulette, on The CW's Supergirl

When we pressed her on whether she's auditioned for any upcoming superhero movie or television projects, she admits that she hasn't - likely due to COVID and her commitments to Jurassic World: Dominion and Severance - but it sounds like she's more than ready to jump back into a comic book universe, be it Marvel or DC.  

"I have not auditioned for any superhero stuff," she tells us. "There was something I auditioned for that was sort of in that space, but the dates didn't work out. I would absolutely love to be more in the comic book space. Maybe this sounds weird to say, but I think I really fit into that world, and I'm just waiting for the phone to ring and be like, “Hey, they want you to audition for this superhero in a DC or Marvel thing.”

I know I played characters in the TV, like universe, but I feel like I'm pretty easy to transform, and I could absolutely come back in either of those worlds as a completely different character, with help from hair and makeup. I love playing in that space. I'm a huge fan myself of the genre, and so for me, it's like, yes! If there are fans reading this article, write to the people who make the decisions on Twitter or whatever, and tell them. Let's mobilize! 

Because I do, I love that space, and, it might not sound like I'm an artsy actor. I am, but I also just like having fun, and I love the fan world. I meet fans all the time. I have amazing conversations with them. Sometimes we're pen pals and we keep in touch with each other, I think we do it, well, I do it for the fans and because I'm a fan myself, not to say I don't like the artsy stuff, obviously I do, but I think that it's such a fun place to explore ideas about our society and question things and - but in a fun, adventurous way where you escape into another world."

In our review of Colin Trevorrow's franchise capper, we said "Jurassic World: Dominion is pure dinosaur mayhem at its finest, 100% fueled by nostalgia and amplified by epic dinosaur action, making it one of the more fun films of the summer. Due to a so-so story, enjoyment will likely heavily depend on your investment in the series, but if you’re looking for two hours of chaotic entertainment, then this is definitely the film for you."

The star-studded cast of the Jurassic World: Dominion features Jurassic alums Chris Pratt (Owen Grady), Bryce Dallas Howard (Claire Dearing), 3x Golden Globe-nominee Sam Neill (Alan Grant), Academy Award-winner Laura Dern (Ellie Sattler), Academy Award-nominee Jeff Goldblum (Ian Malcolm), BD Wong (Dr. Henry Wu), Omar Sy (Barry Sembane), Justice Smith (Franklin Webb), Daniella Pineda (Zia Rodriguez), and Isabella Sermon (Maisie Lockwood).

Newcomers to the franchise include DeWanda Wise (She's Gotta Have It) as Kayla Watts, Mamoudou Athie (Sorry for Your Loss) as Ramsay Cole, Campbell Scott (The Amazing Spider-Man) as Dr. Lewis Dodgson, Scott Haze (Venom) as Rainn Delacourt, Dichen Lachman (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) as Soyona Santos, Kristoffer Polaha (Wonder Woman 1984) as Wyatt Huntley, Elva Trill (Starstruck) as Charlotte Lockwood, Dimitri Thivalos in an undisclosed role, and Varada Sethu (Now You See Me 2) as Shira.

This summer, experience the epic conclusion to the Jurassic era as two generations unite for the first time. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are joined by Oscar®-winner Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum and Sam Neill in Jurassic World Dominion, a bold, timely and breathtaking new adventure that spans the globe. From Jurassic World architect and director Colin Trevorrow, Dominion takes place four years after Isla Nublar has been destroyed. Dinosaurs now live—and hunt—alongside humans all over the world. This fragile balance will reshape the future and determine, once and for all, whether human beings are to remain the apex predators on a planet they now share with history’s most fearsome creatures.
