Laura Haddock Talks Playing Star-Lord's Mother In GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

Along with new minor cast additions surrounding her character, hit the jump and check out what Captain America: The First Avenger actress Laura Haddock has to say about Guardians of the Galaxy.



Though she appeared briefly in Captain America: The First Avenger begging for Cap's autograph, British actress Laura Haddock is set to play Meredith Quill, mother of Chris Pratt's Peter Quill, in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy next year. Speaking with Diabolique Magazine during New York Comic-Con, Haddock gleamed when she was asked about her role in the James Gunn-directed movie. “Yes, I got an opportunity to go in and do a part in that movie,” she gushed. “It was amazing working with James Gunn and Chris Pratt. It was one of the most brilliant jobs because it's huge! My part is very personal, very important to the story, but quite a small part. But [still] very important certainly to [Star-Lord's] journey. I don't know much I can say it's very different to anything I've ever done. It's a complete opposite of anything I've ever done.”

According to producer Kevin Feige, Peter Quill will leave earth in the mid 1980s before “we meet back up with him” in space where he's very much a citizen of the universe. And with only 5% of Guardians of the Galaxy taking place on earth, it's almost safe to say we'll see Laura Haddock's Meredith Quill in a period-setting flashback or prologue (maybe playing the same Captain America groupie? Probably not). But anyhow, it's worth noting that we'll also see Meredith's own mother, sister and best friend in Guardians as three unknown UK actresses - Janis Ahern, Marianna Dean, and Lindsay Morton - have all filled those minor roles via Casting Call Pro. 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. The all-star cast includes Chris Pratt as Peter Quill aka Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, Michael Rooker as Yondu, Karen Gillan as Nebula, two-time Academy Award nominee Djimon Hounsou as Korath, Academy Award® winner Benicio del Toro as The Collector, Academy Award nominee John C. Reilly as Rhomann Dey, and six-time Academy Award nominee Glenn Close as Nova Prime, with Vin Diesal as Groot and Academy Award nominee Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon. Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” is scheduled for release August 1, 2014!
