'WandaVision' star Teyonah Parris on her wall-breaking stunt and Monica's potentially super future

In the WandaVision series, Teyonah Parris plays S.W.O.R.D. agent Monica Rambeau and in the pivotal fourth episode, is the recipient of Wanda Maximoff's superpowers blasting her through multiple walls. Parris recently spoke with Yahoo Entertainment about the action-packed scene, and more. "And so that scene, [Elizabeth Olsen] is very intense and I was very scared as the actor in a fun way," Parris said. "And then on a technical level, I've never been on wires before, man, that was uncomfortable." She added that the stunt harnesses provided a new challenge for her. "[You] still try to act and have reactions that are true to the moment at hand and not what you feel digging in your butt," she said. Watch more in the interview above.
