Angelina Jolie made a surprise appearance during Ma Dong Suk‘s interview.
Angelina Jolie came to support Ma Dong Suk with a surprise visit and said, “I can’t wait to meet Korean fans. Filming with him was like a dream. I’ve always been a big fan of him, and it was an exceptional honor to be part of this team.”
Ma Dong Suk also shared, “When we were filming, it was before COVID-19. We used to talk about how we both wanted to go to Korea to greet everyone and meet our Korean fans. It was unfortunate with (the virus) spreading all over the world for two years now, so when I told her I’m attending a Korean press conference, she came to support me. She’s so sweet.”
Ma Dong Seok then explained what made him join the Eternals, “After Train to Busan became well-known abroad, I began receiving lots of offers from Hollywood.” He continued, “But because I was working on a lot of projects in Korea, the timing never worked out.”
The actor added, “A few years ago, Marvel’s casting director offered me the role of Gilgamesh in Eternals, and I really appreciated it. After that, I talked to director Chloe Zhao and producer Nate Moore via video conference. When we talked, Chloe had already seen several of my films and finished analyzing them. I didn’t audition for the role.”
To close off, Ma Dong Suk shared key points to look out for in the film, saying, “This movie is about people of various colors finding one another to create a new family. The great thing about this movie is that it has a variety of stories of various people.”
