Angourie Rice as Betty Brant in Spider-Man: Far From Home
Angourie Rice gave life to Betty Brant in the new Spider-Man movies. During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter the actress told how it had been her time at Marvel and the beginning of the shooting, which was interrupted by the pandemic in 2020. Rice received a courtesy call from the production company to put her on the sidelines about what Peter Parker‘s classmates meant in the story.
“The pandemic disrupted a lot of things and has affected everything in the world. And it also affected Spider-Man pre-production and all the movies that were being made after 2020. So it was that ‘We want Betty to be in that,’ and I wanted to be in that, of course. It’s been a big part of my life, and I really wanted to be a part of it. Then they said ‘We want you to be a part of it too,’ but obviously, it’s hard to travel. And, of course, with the story focusing on Peter’s larger scale journey, they address a lot of important existential questions about what it means to be a hero. So it was a lot of fun to come in, do my bit and work with people I know and like to work with. And then to see it on the big screen, it’s this big emotional and dramatic blockbuster”, she confessed.
The actress also made reference to the confidentiality that the production company handles regarding its releases. It is already public knowledge that the heads of Marvel Studios don’t like it when the slightest detail is leaked, which has been a problem with her co-star, Tom Holland, who is considered the least reliable when it comes to keeping a secret.
“The way that like Marvel protects the story is beyond anything I’ve ever experienced. It’s so secret. Shooting Spider-Man was like getting to go to a really cool theme park, but you couldn’t tell anyone because it’s the world’s most secret theme park. That was tricky. The good thing about the second film was that I had my mother and my sister there with me, the whole time, so they were in on it and I could talk to them about anything because they were there. They are super secretive about everything. After being a part of it and seeing how people speculate from photos online and single lines in previous films, the fans of Marvel do some really great guesswork, for sure, so I understand”, she said.
