Ophelia Lovibond Confirms Having Role In GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
We're still left to speculate on who she's playing, but Mr. Popper's Penguins British actress Ophelia Lovibond has confirmed that her "first go at sci-fi" will indeed be in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy.
A couple months before Benicio Del Toro signed on to play The Collector, we first learned that his character was in Guardians of the Galaxy with the April casting of Ophelia Lovibond. The British actress was said to be playing an "aide" to Del Toro's Collector, but since Lovibond was excluded from Marvel's Comic-Con panel & filming announcement, her own inclusion has been up in the air.
Fret not! Ophelia Lovibond has confirmed to InStyle UK magazine that her "first go at sci-fi" will be in Guardians of the Galaxy. "I'm not really allowed to talk about it as it's such a top-secret project," said the Mr. Popper's Penguins actress. "But I'm incredibly excited and I'm still kind of pinching myself." It's speculated that Lovibond's playing The Collector's daughter, Carina Walters. Or, perhaps, Death, the embodiment of the end of life in the Marvel Universe. What do you think?
“Guardians of the Galaxy,” the next epic adventure from Marvel Studios, is directed by James Gunn from his screenplay, with a story by Nicole Perlman and Gunn, and the film will introduce audiences to a whole new side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Reilly as Rhomann Dey, and six-time Academy Award nominee Glenn Close as Nova Prime. Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” is slated for August 1, 2014!
