It turns out Gugu actually went to drama school with her co-stars Tom Hiddleston and Wunmi Mosaku.

Sarina asked what it was like reuniting with them for a massive Marvel Studios project.

"Yeah, it's lovely, I have to say. I mean, I'm really proud of everyone," she responded.

Gugu added, "I think there's just an immense pride of sort of seeing your generation rise."

"And I think there's a sort of natural rapport and comradery, especially during the pandemic, was really comforting."

"It also helped us be more playful."

She elaborated, "When you know people really well you can sort of play a bit harder."

"You can push people's buttons and just invest in the characters. You don't have to be too polite."

"It sort of takes away any of that sort of having to get to know you kind of thing, which is really lovely."

In the same interview, Gugu shared how she got the part in the highly anticipated Marvel series.

She also spoke about the projects she's working on next.
