Emilia Clarke recently entered the billion-dollar MCU franchise. The actress, who rose to fame after starring in Game of Thrones, made her debut in Marvel through Secret Invasion. Marvel was under the radar as people and some fellow actors claimed that people who act in front of a green screen are not acting.

The freshly entered star in the franchise dismissed these claims and the people talking nasty about the MCU. She shared her experience while shooting for the Disney+ series. The Me Before You actress who has experience working on films where cast members have interacted with green screens, shared her perspective on the misunderstanding. She said,

“The stigma is that people don’t do any acting in these shows. And then you’re like, ‘Well, then why are they asking all these great actors to do it, and why are they saying yes?”

The 36-year-old shed light on the fact that Marvel is still able to attract big-name actors for its numerous films and TV episodes even though it is well-known that they employ green screens.

Emilia Clarke’s comment comes years after Marvel stars like Anthony Hopkins, who played Odin in the first three Thor movies, and Christian Bale, who played Gorr the God Butcher in Thor: Love and Thunder, made controversial comments on green screen acting.
