In a new interview, Lashana as opened up about how she heard about her character’s death – and it was straight from the big boss, Kevin Feige.
“Kevin Feige, who is the nicest guy, personally emailed me way before, I want to say, over a year, year-and-a-half-plus, before WandaVision aired and explained what was happening, how it was going to happen, when it was going to happen,” she shared with ComicBook.com.
She added that he specifically said “that he didn’t want me to find out through anyone else. So there was a lot of care around that.”
Lashana added that while it was a sad reveal, and she did have an emotional reaction to it.
“It was sad to read, but also, because I think Maria had such a massive impact on Captain Marvel and everyone loved her and really related to her, I felt good with the work that I did there and felt good that they were able to now continue her legacy in her daughter, which is amazing,” she added. “And the introduction to her powers in WandaVision is also amazing, so I feel genuinely proud. I’m just happy I knew beforehand and didn’t find out online somewhere.”
