Kat Dennings brings comic relief to the dark and emotional "Thor: The Dark World."
In the film, in theaters on Nov. 8, 2013, Dennings portrays Darcy Lewis, assistant to Natalie Portman's character Jane Foster, Thor's scientist girlfriend. "Thor: The Dark World" reunites Portman with Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Anthony Hopkins as Thor's father, Odin, and Tom Hiddleston as Thor's evil brother, Loki.
OTRC.com recently sat down with Dennings, where she talked about filming scenes with co-stars Portman and Stellan Skarsgard, bringing comic relief to the film and having her character be embraced by fans of the comic book.
Check out OTRC.com's interview with Kat Dennings above, as well as clips from the movie, and check out three questions from the interview below.
1. Were you surprised by all the comedy that happened in this film?
"Actually yeah. I mean, I knew my part of it but watching it there were so many laughs and someone said you kind of missed lines because there was so much laughter and it was really, it wasn't unexpected but it did kind of take me by surprise because the movie is so epic and there are dark moments and emotional moments. So all of the sudden, the funniest thing you've ever seen happens and it breaks it up, it's great."
2. What was it like teaming up again with Stellan and Natalie?
"So awesome! I love Stellan so much. He is the sweetest, best, funniest guy in the world. I worship him. And Natalie I have known for a long time and she is just the best." "[Stellan] had to hear a lot of girl talk, poor guy. I mean, he has like 25 kids so he knows how it is but Natalie and I were just like, 'blah blah blah blah blah,' and he would just be sitting like this all day. He is one of the girls."
3. What do you think about this character, that wasn't in the comic books, and having it be so embraced by fans?
"It's so nice and I recognize how important that is because people are really protective of the comic and so am I. I'm a really big comic book fan so, inventing a new character is kind of rough territory and I've just been really lucky that people like her so much because I love her and I like watching her and I'm really happy to be that little comedy relief through the movie."
