“I am a Marvel [fan] and I am a comic book fan and I’m a super fan of Guardians of the Galaxy,” Raven-Symoné says in this EXCLUSIVE behind-the-scenes of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout! She plays Valkyrie, the fierce Asgardian warrior, who comes and rescue the Guardians. “Valkyrie is a calm, cool, awesome chick,” Raven continues. She adds that Valkyrie and Gamora are “very competitive” in the episode. “Finding ways to just push each other’s buttons throughout the whole episode is kind of fun,” Raven notes.
“What I love about Guardians of the Galaxy is that it’s comedy, it’s action, it’s twists, it’s turns, and the characters are well-rounded,” Raven says. The actress has had a lot of roles over the years and she says that she looks for “strength” in the roles she takes and “how much fun it’s going to be.” Valkyrie is played by Tessa Thompson in the live-action Marvel Cinematic Universe movies.
