Thor: Ragnarok will expand the God of Thunder’s world and transport audiences to the planet Sakaar, where the titular will meet the Grandmaster and Topaz. In an interview with ScreenRant, actress Rachel House discussed Topaz’s relationship with the Grandmaster and explained why she will not be fond of Valkyrie.
House revealed that Topaz’s rivalry with Valkyrie will be based on the Grandmaster’s fondness for the Asgardian warrior:
“Well I see her as the Grandmaster’s bodyguard. She’s very protective and doesn’t like when he shows affection towards other people. Yeah. Particularly Valkyrie. She doesn’t like Valkyrie.”
House also elaborated on Topaz’s role in the film and her relationship with the Grandmaster:
“Well I just feel that he has all the power in the whole universe, so he’s very effervescent and he’s old and he stores a whole lot of energy. So I think when you’ve been around that long and you have total authority, what can you do but be happy? And I mean that is Topaz’s role as well is to just calm him down with her standard grumpy miserableness.”
