Evangeline Lilly was all smiles as she walked into the interview room. Having seen Ant-Man and the Wasp and just how awesome her character, Hope van Dyne / The Wasp was, I was all smiles as well. I have said it before, but it is worth repeating, Evangeline is fierce (in person and as “the Wasp”). I can’t wait for you to see her in this role!
Here is what Evangeline Lilly had to say…
- Her partner is the stay-at-home dad in their relationship, she’s the bread winner.
- Growing up she used to fantasize about being Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman.
- Working with Michelle Pfeiffer was a dream for her. “…She’s perfect, like, there’s no flaws. She’s nice. She’s generous. She’s smart. She’s funny. She’s intelligent. She’s considerate. She’s talented, and of course, she is the hottest sixty-something or however old she is you’re ever gonna meet. And so playing her daughter was an incredible honor…”
Fun Fact: Having all of the women in the MCU in a movie together is just a rumor, but Evangeline would love for it to happen.
- Getting the chance to work with Michael Douglas in more depth this time around was something she was really excited about. “…He’s so good. He’s such a charismatic, present, powerful human being that when he starts to perform, he just changes the molecules of the room. You’re suddenly transported to the place you’re pretending to be…
Fun fact: Evangeline Lilly has a girl crush on Okoye, Danai Gurira
While in LA, we were also able to interview Michael Douglas (“Dr. Hank Pym”), Hannah John-Kamen (“Ghost”), Paul Rudd (“Scott Lang / Ant-Man”), Laurence Fishburne (“Dr. Bill Foster”) and Director Peyton Reed.
