Depart a Remark
There are quite a lot of totally different trajectories to take should you’re making an attempt to determine a profession in Hollywood.

Whereas it wasn’t precisely a star-making flip, the actress advised Collider that she took the half for a few totally different causes:
I had a gathering with Jon Favreau for that and so they had mentioned to me, ‘It’s a really, very small half, but it surely’s with Robert Downey and Jon, and it’ll be actually enjoyable. And quite a lot of instances they bring about these characters again into larger extra substantial roles.’ It wasn’t a promise, but it surely was undoubtedly one thing that was hinted at to me. In order that’s the rationale why I even took the assembly was as a result of I assumed, ‘Properly, if there’s an opportunity of it, why not spend a night working with Robert Downey Jr. and Jon Favreau? Nice. I really like them each. They’re wonderful. It’ll be a very good expertise.’ And that’s precisely what it ended up being. It ended up being nothing greater than that, but it surely actually was enjoyable. And we had been capturing till like 4 within the morning. However yeah, it’s a bizarre cameo that become actually nothing. However I don’t thoughts!
Whereas her function in Iron Man 2 didn’t find yourself translating into an even bigger half within the MCU, it wasn’t a complete loss. Kate Mara made it clear that she nonetheless valued the expertise — and her profession nonetheless managed to take off, albeit in a special path.
