Tessa Thompson, experience and new projects
Incredible!!, it is completely different to everything I had done before, of course a production with Thor: Ragnarok is already different, but I learned a lot, not only in the technical aspect but at the interpretive level. Jumping and brandishing a sword in front of a blue screen forces you to use your imagination. My colleagues with much more experience in these matters were very helpful.
But once this project is finished, Tessa focuses on the following: “I started working on the second season of Westworld (2016-), and this year it will be very fun because they will be able to see characters interact with others who have not they had done it, and there will also be new actors with new roles who will join us, and I also just finished a movie called Sorry to Bother You ”
