The second star will play the warrior Thena and recently spoke to the Disney portal D23 Magazine, in which she explained what made her join the cast “Eternals”:

The real reason for joining this movie was because I could be part of such a diverse family. I wanted to play in it, no matter how big my role was. I was surprised at how down to earth Chloe was. When we met her, she was sitting on the floor with no shoes on. It quickly turned out that we are all nerds and geeks, so it was easy for us to make contact. These subtle differences and various tics have become our superpowers. Although our cast is very starry, there were no conflicts because we got on well and Chloe treated everyone the same. No favoritism.
