“She’s amazing. It’s actually jaw-dropping. I was just watching, just on a day-to-day level. Sometimes dialogue lands, just on that level, it lands in a morning. Her ability to absorb and then perform was quite remarkable. And she’s funny. One of the signs of a good actor is their ability to-, her comedic touch and she has it in spades.”Tim Roth on She-Hulk
He also talks about how remarkable the performance truly was shows that we’re truly in for something special with the series.
“And with Mark, Mark’s hilarious. The actual on the set visuals with him in his cg costume is something I will cherish. He is incredibly funny, he does not take it seriously. [Mark] takes the job seriously, he doesn’t take himself seriously. He has a wit and a gentleness and the two of them together were very funny and we could improvise, depending on who we were working with on the particular day. Some of the directors were open to improv. So the idea of improvising with those characters was unusual to say the least. it was quite fun.”Tim Roth on She-Hulk
