Carrie Coon, who plays Thanos’ lackey Proxima Midnight, has commented on her lonely experience shooting Avengers: Infinity War.
Coon shared with Entertainment Weekly what she called two “diametrically opposed experiences” whilst shooting Avengers: Infinity War and indie film Izzy Gets the F*ck Across Town:
“You couldn’t have two more diametrically opposed experiences. We shot Izzy in a little house with our own costumes with bad breakfast sandwiches for no money, and then you fly to Atlanta and there’s literally an entire studio system devoted to the Marvel franchise.”
Coon reveals that she struggled with the CGI-heavy production that made up shooting Avengers: Infinity War, as she shot most of her scenes completely alone unable to feed off the performance of her co-stars:
“The Avengers franchise is so enormous, it’s actually much lonelier, because you’re never acting with the actors in the room. Robert Downey Jr.’s come in six weeks ago and done this scene and now you’re coming in and putting yourself into it and he’s not there… You have to imagine the whole thing, as opposed to having a flesh-and-blood human being like Mackenzie Davis in front of you, in all of her beautiful emotional transparency.”
Proxima Midnight does not take up a lot of screen time in Avengers: Infinity War, which is unfortunate as audience members did not get to experience Coon’s completely fulfilled acting ability.
