Teyonah Parris plays Monica Rambeau in Disney+’s WandaVision. Playing the daughter of Maria Rambeau, who we saw in 2019’s Captain Marvel; we see Monica not only dealing with the death of her mother, but coming back after being “blipped out” for five years.
In a recent interview, Parris talked about Monica and her grief:
“Once Monica sees Wanda and realizes that she’s grieving, she recognizes their parallel experiences and that they’re both grieving loved ones. So I think that Monica is handling [her grief] in the best way she can. I’m not saying it’s the most effective and most therapeutic way, but I do feel like she is trying to reconcile with her own grief by helping Wanda with hers.”
As we approach the final few episodes of WandaVision, Parris also went into the “epic and incredibly sad ending” that fans should expect:
“Epic and incredibly sad. I mean, the whole show is incredibly sad to me, but I’m putting those words together.”
Parris also talked about Monica’s relationship with Captain Marvel, which seems to be a bit strained:
“What I can say is that we have a couple more episodes to go, and we also know that Monica will be in Captain Marvel II. So there’s quite a bit of real estate left for us to explore that relationship. I don’t want to ruin it for anyone so I’ll just leave it at that.”
Parris also talked about the scene when Monica came back from the Blip:
“Yes, the fact that you had the people who are physically present, the chaos of that, and then the imaginary people we had to see. They were also there, and I think they had to step in or something. It was very technical. The camera was a Steadicam so the camera operator was actually holding it and following you. So there was a dance to making sure I hit marks because visual effects needed this space so they could add a whole human being popping up later. So it definitely was an intricate dance, and also, the emotional state I had to be in was another layer of that. So that was a very particular setup and scene.”
