Marvel Studios’ Loki introduced plenty of new characters into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The most popular, however, was easily the addition of Tara Strong‘s Miss Minutes. As a character created specifically for the television series, fans were uncertain what to expect from the cartoon clock. However, by the season’s end, she quickly became a fan favorite.
During a recent appearance at Fan Expo Canada, Strong briefly talked about her role as Miss Minutes and how she didn’t know what she was auditioning for in the beginning. It wasn’t until she was on a Zoom call with director Kate Herron and the Marvel Cinematic Universe team that she had an idea as to what she was auditioning for. “I actually didn’t know what I was auditioning for when I first read for Loki,” she said. “So I recorded one a little more like Siri, and then one a little bit less like that, and the one with the accent. And I didn’t even know exactly what it was until I was on the Zoom with Kate Herron and the rest of the MCU team.”
Despite her excitement over the role, Strong admitted she didn’t think Miss Minutes would become as big of a deal as she has among fans. “I didn’t know was gonna be that big, and I honestly think it’s my favorite Marvel TV series ever,” she stated. “Like, here’s this animated character, we don’t know her backstory, she’s jumping into a very beloved universe, and people were like ‘oh my God, we love her!’ right away. So I’m so happy and it’s like this gift that keeps on giving that I didn’t know I ordered.”
As to whether or not she’ll be returning for Season 2 of Loki? Strong is not willing to answer that just yet. “I actually can’t tell you, cause then I’d have to prune you!”
The first season of Marvel Studios’ Loki is streaming now on Disney+.
