'Guardians of the Galaxy' Adds One More to Cast (Exclusive)
Ophelia Lovibond joins Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana in Marvel's sci-fi adventure movie.
Ophelia Lovibond has nabbed a supporting role in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
Galaxy is part of Marvel’s phase two of its superhero film slate and is directed by James Gunn.
The project is a space-set adventure movie and sees Chris Pratt playing Star Lord, who leads a group that includes Zoe Saldana (as a green-skinned assassin named Gamora) and WWE star Dave Bautista (as Drax the Destroyer).
Earlier this week, Michael Rooker joined the cast as a bow-and-arrow-loving alien named Yondu.
Details of Lovibond’s role are being kept in the farther reaches of deep space, home of Marvel's security bunker.
A June production start date is being readied, and Disney has set an Aug. 1, 2014, release date.
Lovibond is a British actress whose credits include movies such as 220.127.116.11. and Nowhere Boy and the TV series Titanic: Blood and Steel. She has appeared stateside in the Jim Carrey comedy Mr. Popper’s Penguins and No Strings Attached with Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher.
She is repped by ICM Partners, Principato Young Entertainment and London’s BWH Agency.
