‘She-Hulk: Attorney at Law’ Star Tatiana Maslany Talks Mark Ruffalo, Being Mentoring, and More
As She-Hulk: Attorney at Law nears its release on Disney+ in less than a month, series star, Tatiana Maslany, has started doing some early press for the series. And one of her major talking points is how she’s been mentored by Hulk actor Mark Ruffalo – even before filming began on the new show.
In the new Disney+ show, the Orphan Black star plays the lead role of Jessica Walters – Bruce Banner’s lawyer cousin who ends up sharing his transformative abilities after he gives her a blood transfusion – and she’s revealed Marvel veteran Mark was on hand to help her.
“There’s something about Mark that’s just so open. When you’ve worked in this industry for long enough, it can be, probably, quite easy to be closed and to distrust and not to play because you get known for one thing, and so then you have to uphold some kind of legacy of work,” Maslany tells SFX magazine. “But with Mark, you’re meeting somebody who will just spill it all and give it.”
Mark’s character of Bruce Banner appears in the show as well and Tatiana admits their off-screen mentorship mirrored what was happening on screen as one Hulk advised the other.
“So much of the dynamic is (Bruce Banner) importing about being the Hulk and Jen sort of taking what I want and what I don’t want,” Maslany adds. “It hilariously mirrored what we were doing off-camera as well.”
She-Hulk executive producer/director Kat Cairo also weighed in on the actors’ work together – revealing the paid had a lot of fun.
“They came together and they just brought out the best in each other. And I think most importantly, they had fun. And especially when you’re doing comic book projects, you want to be having fun.” Cairo says.
