The actress told that her character’s name is Tyla and the character is quite different from the previous one. She also mentioned that her character also has some “spiciness” hence, it was easy for her to tap into it.
“I don’t know who I play, her name is Tyla, that’s what I can give you, but I actually saw a little bit of it in ADR and it looks incredible, so that is all I can say,” Reid revealed. “I don’t want to get in trouble but I am super excited to be a part of it.”
“It’s a fun one, it’s different from the first one but I think it’s going to take people on a ride and there are a lot of twists and turns and surprises and as far as my character goes. She’s a little spicy, so you guys can expect a little bit of spiciness from her,” Reid teased. “…I feel like it’s something I can tap into because she’s just a little sassy and has a little bit of swag, so I feel like she kind of related to me a little bit.”
Idris Elba is an “incredible” actor
Reid also mentioned his on-screen father Idris Elba during the interview. She told that he was an “incredible” person and he is “the nicest person to work with.” She was also amazed by his acting skills and although Idris Elba kept her on her toes they had a great time while shooting the movie.
“He is incredible, he’s the nicest person to work with but also so focused,” Reid explained. “It’s so crazy how he can, like, go in and out. He would be his character, and his character is, like, serious and then they would call cut and he would just go back into conversation and laugh and talk and I’m like, this guy is incredible. So he definitely kept me on my toes but we had a great time.”
