Gugu Mbatha-Raw Confirms ‘LOKI’ Has Resumed Production
A new interview with Gugu Mbatha-Raw with Forbes.com confirms filming on the Loki series has resumed after being put on pause last March.
Life is starting to return to somewhere near normal for Mbatha-Raw, who is now back at work filming the upcoming Marvel TV series, Loki, for Disney+ in Atlanta, Georgia.
“I was in the middle of filming when the pandemic happened, so I had a real break, I’ve been painting and reading. Like so many others, I was at home for a long time,” she said. “Not to make light of the suffering going on, but in some ways, it has been an opportunity for me to get a fresh perspective on things. It is downtime that perhaps I might not have had, and now I’m thankful to be back to work. It’s been a journey for everyone, but it’s all for a greater reason and the greater good.”
Typical of MCU actors, Mbatha-Raw isn’t giving up any details on the production, however it’s more welcome news for Marvel fans eager to see what the God of Mischief gets up to next.
“I’m obviously sworn to secrecy about everything to do with Loki, but it feels great to be back. Everyone is trying to do it as safely as possible under the circumstances, and it feels good. I’m excited. It’s a lot of fun, and I can’t wait to see it.”
Editing to add a quick additional quote from another new interview with Vulture where Mbatha-Raw is a bit more specific about when they resumed filming. Previous reports were they would begin on September 14.
