Actress Sophia Di Martino says she had a good time engaged on her character Sylvie within the net sequence Loki. She says probably the most attention-grabbing factor for her was how damaged her character was, including that she finds it attention-grabbing to play characters which are broken.
The actress additionally opened up about how she approached the character and the analysis she did to get into the pores and skin of Sylvie. Read on to know all of the Loki actress needed to say.
Talking about Sylvie, Sophia Di Martino mentioned, “The most interesting thing for me is how broken she is and I find it interesting to do characters who are damaged and who sort of wear a lot of armour but they also get a chance to share their vulnerability, and within that I find that there’s fun stuff to play. She’s also really funny and she gets all the funny lines, which is always fun.”
Talking about her method for Loki’s Sylvie, Sophia Di Martino mentioned, “So, I watched all of the Tom (Hiddleston) stuff and I watched the films and then I sort of tried to forget about it because I really didn’t want to just do an impression of Tom’s Loki. That would have been really bad because I am terrible at impressions, so I just wanted to make it my own and a lot of it started with fighting style and one of the first things we did in prep was to start working with stunt team and work on the fight scenes, so there was a lot to learn.”
Di Martino says that her character isn’t skilled in martial arts and that’s the reason the makers had been eager on making the position being tough. “We were very keen on Sylvie being rough with her fighting style because she’s a street fighter, she’s a brawler; she’s not trained in martial arts or anything like that. She just uses her strength and her bravery to get through each fight,” the Loki actress added.
Sophia Di Martino added, “She enjoys fighting, she enjoys the adrenaline of it, the rush of it and she gets a kick out of the fight and that told me a lot about her character. She’s this sort of feral cat almost, she knows she’ll win and if not win then she’ll survive.”
