Lucy immediately accepted a role in the film after learning that Helen had signed on!
As for how she bonded with Helen, who plays her supervillain sister, Liu shared, “We found a really intimate friendship, all of us. We went shopping together, we celebrated Helen’s birthday, and there was just this immediate camaraderie between us.”
Levi buffed up for his role as Shazam by “eating way too much food” and “going to the gym.”

She also shared her take on the newly released trailer for “Game of Thrones” spin-off “House of the Dragon.” Along with expressing her love for her “GOT” character Brienne of Tarth, she commented, “I think it’ll be great for people to see what feels like a continuation of the ‘Game of Thrones’ story. It was so beloved and still is now.”
