HollywoodLife has an EXCLUSIVE video of ‘Marvel Rising: Initiation’ star Kamil McFadden talking about his amazing character — Patriot! For Kamil, getting to play a superhero is a dream come true!
“Patriot, actually, doesn’t have any powers, but it doesn’t stop him from doing his job,” Kamil McFadden says in our EXCLUSIVE video. “He’s very by the book. He never gives up. He’s always persevering.” The K.C. Undercover alum also loves Patriot’s shield, because it’s also a glider that can shoot projectiles and says it’s “probably one of the coolest weapons in the project.” The role means a lot to Kamil. “I always said I wanted to be a superhero, and now that dreams coming true,” he continues.
