During the San Diego Comic-Con, it was revealed that Elizabeth Debicki is portraying the character of Ayesha – a.k.a. Her – in Marvel’s upcoming sequel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and during an interview with Collider, the actress has been discussing her role in the sequel.
“She is the leader of the Sovereign people, so they’re really kind of incredible race we haven’t seen before, I think. I’ve never seen anything like it. When I was being shown the graphic art for it I just thought this was going to look incredible on screen and it does. She enlists the help of the Guardians to fight an intergalactic battle, cause she doesn’t want to get her hands dirty basically. They’re this ragtag group of you know, they’ll clean up that mess in the universe and that mess in the in the universe. So she just gives them a call and they come over to her planet and clean up some mess and so that’s where the relationship with them starts, but it shifts very quickly into something different.”
