Elsewhere in Chan’s diary, she’s back in the MCU this autumn as powerful member of The Eternals, Sersi, after playing Kree soldier Minn-Erva in Captain Marvel.

“Sersi’s not necessarily the best fighter, she doesn’t have the most obviously impressive powers. The main thing is she’s an empath,” she explained of her new character.

“She has a connection with humans, and with the world and the earth. That is her strength, so I leant into that.”

But how did she manage to jump from character to character within the same universe?

“I enjoyed [Captain Marvel] and I loved working with Brie [Larson], but my character dies in the film as well, so I thought there was no chance that I would really be coming back, which I was a bit bummed about.

“Then I encountered Kevin Feige during the awards circuit for Crazy Rich Asians and out of the blue, he just came up and said, ‘We’d love to have you back’,” recalled Chan.

She went on to say that she had no idea she would be re-entering the Marvel world so soon, but that she is thankful to them finding a project that she could join.

Eternals will be released in the US and the UK on November 5, 2021.
