London: Actor Florence Pugh says the most terrifying aspect of starring in the upcoming superhero film “Black Widow” was doing the Russian accent.
In the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s stand-alone film, the Oscar-nominated actor plays Yelena Belova, a sister-figure to Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff/ the titular Black Widow who was trained in the Red Room.
“I was scared because my Russian accent was going to be out there and I didn’t know what it sounded like.
“I’m also playing a character who no-one’s seen before but they’ve read about her. I didn’t know whether people were going to hate me!” Pugh told ELLE UK for its June issue.
The 24-year-old actor also said the idea of joining the MCU itself was quite “daunting”.
“When you think of Marvel, it’s big and daunting. Especially being a relatively small actor to look at it and go, ‘Oh! I’m going to be a part of this’, that’s a big decision,” she said.
“Black Widow”, which was scheduled to hit the theatres on May 1, will now release on November 6 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Directed by Cate Shortland, the film also stars David Harbour and Rachel Weisz. (PTI)
