Episode 3 of Loki featured the owner Marvel Cinematic Universe villain form a dangerous dangerous alliance with her alternate timeline counterpart Sylvie, and sparks flew as the two cheaters tried to escape a doomed moon. it was ours first real look at Sylvie . who is determined to take down the omniscient Keepers of Time – and her left fans excited for the fourth episode, which hit Disney Plus on Wednesday.

The character is portrayed with mischievous energy of the actor Sofia Di Martino, who appeared in precedence in The Beatles 2019 by Danny Boylele celebration Yesterday, post- apocalyptic martial arts show In the Badlands and an array of British drama series.

Loki is Di Martino Martino first MCU role, so I was excited to chat with her over Zoom in on his whirlwind audition process, how she made Sylvie feels different from Tom Hiddleston’s iconic Loki and episode 3 moment of LGBTQI representation.

Here is a transcript of our conversation, slightly modified for clarity.

D: I love how you are playing Sylvie is such an intriguing character so far. can you tell me how you came to get involved in Loki?
Di Martino: Thanks. I would do it already worked with [director] Kate Herron and I got a script to audition. It was a very short scene; I think the characters their names were Bob and Sarah. And that’s it – the shortest audition process I’ve ever had to go through. I couldn’t do auditions, recalls or anything else because I was very pregnant in that moment.

I also could not travel and Tom was in New York, so we couldn’t physically meet and me found myself on FaceTime with Tom. Then, shortly after, I was chosen. I’m still having trouble wrapping mine head around it. It’s crazy.

I remember the interviews with Marvel actors who say they were sent big fleece of comics to read as they prepared for the roles. Has this happened to you?
To be honest, I didn’t have time. It all happened like this in hurry. There was no time to read a big stack of comics. Kate sent me some, but I don’t remember which ones without going home and control.

Have you watched any non-Marvels? movies prepare?
One of the movies we watched for references to aerobatics were atomic blond – the fight scenes in that I am great. Charlize Theron is super-strong and fights like a man. We wanted Sylvie for being a brawler; we didn’t want her for being too elegant in the way she fights because that’s Loki’s thing. It’s so ballet in the way than him moves, but Sylvie is more of a street fighter.

What was your precedent? experience with wonder moved Loki Lo in particular?
I had looked at some of them of the movies and I liked them a lot. But to be honest, I didn’t know much for nothing. Tom taught me a lot through his “Loki Lecture” [which the actor uses to help new actors catch up] ee just being around him – he knows so much. If I have a question about something, I can just ask Tom and most of the time it will do know the answer.

Given the apparent relationship between your character and Tom’s, he made his own performance how does Loki inspire yours?
I think it was important for me to make Sylvie her character. So I didn’t want make an impression of Tom or try to copy his Loki – I’m terrible with impressions. I must know who Loki was and he did research around that, but I started from zero really.

There are similarities, but many of that comes from the script and their energy. she is also mischievous and anarchist in his way – that kind of chaotic energy passes through. But I also wanted her to be his own person.

Does this make sense. Based on episode 3, it seemed like these are two people who have had very different life experiences.
Of course they did. Loki has grown up up like a prince and Sylvie no.

“Must they have been would-be princesses or maybe another prince?” That episode 3 line got a big reaction. And I know Kate Herron said recognizing Loki is bisexual was one of the objectives of the show. Did he put you on? more weight on the line? His hard to say.
I knew it was a really important representation for the show and that the comics have talked about it for a long time with mythology of Loki, so it was super important. But I just played the line for the line; I didn’t think you got that much attention while filming. Which is good; I would have ruined it up.
