Even though Xochitl Gomez had learned a lot throughout all her years of acting, the role in Marvel’s second installment of Dr. Strange provided her with even more learning opportunities. While on the set of “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”, Gomez got to take notes from one of the franchise’s other heroines: Wanda Maximoff, played by actor Elizabeth Olsen.
During a press junket ahead of the film’s premiere, the young actor said she found herself watching Olsen between takes. As Gomez told Variety, “I did look at Lizzie, you know, especially while she was acting and getting ready to kind of do the scene. … She would get in that moment. And I realized that, ‘Oh, well, if she’s doing it, I should probably do it, too.'”
In an interview with Screenrant, Gomez reflected on some sound advice Olsen gave her while on set pertaining to her character: “She said to never hesitate to give Marvel an idea, or to just pitch in about your character.” She told the outlet that she took Olsen’s excellent advice, and it was a gratifying and exciting moment for her when some of her ideas made it into her scenes.
