During an interview with EW, James Mangold opened up about Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny role. “She’s a daughter of a friend of Indy’s, who we will also meet in the movie,” Mangold told the site. “Helena’s gotten herself in a bit of trouble, and brings that to Indy’s doorstep. She’s a character who’s a wonderful set of contradictions — charming and brilliant, but also a lot of trouble.”
