Teyonah Parris Plays Geraldine on 'WandaVision,' But We Know She's Really [Spoiler]

Teyonah Parris is introduced in WandaVision‘s second episode as a woman named Geraldine, but fans who have been paying attention to the show’s development know that she’s really someone else.

It was announced back in July 2019 that Teyonah was cast as the adult version of Monica Rambeau and that the events in WandaVision take place after the events in Avengers: Endgame.

For now, the first two episodes of WandaVision have us trapped in a sitcom starring Elizabeth Olsen‘s Wanda Maximoff and Paul Bettany‘s Vision. It seems there is more to the story and we’ll have to wait and see what’s really going on!

On her role in the series, Teyonah told ComicBook.com, “I can say that you do meet Geraldine, in the first couple of episodes. And so trying to figure out how this connects to Wanda and Vision, and yes, is part of the fun of the show. And is that Monica or is, she said her name’s Geraldine? Who is this? I think that’s part of the excitement that you’ll get to try to figure out as you watch the show.”

The role of Monica Rambeau was introduced as a young girl in Captain Marvel, which took place in 1995.

“You meet young Monica in Captain Marvel and I definitely went back to that film to see how Akira Akbar has portrayed her and the things she was,” she said. “And obviously we’re meeting Monica Rambeau now, very grown and just trying to map out and imagine what her growth and what her life has been since we last saw her has been a lot of the fun part. And then also going back to the comic books and the source material of ‘Who is Monica Rambeau?’ And using my own ideas and also those from the creatives from Matt [Shakman], Jac [Shaeffer], and Mary [Livanos] and kind of melding them together. They’ve been really open and welcoming and collaborative with that process and allowing me to really feel and take ownership of who Monica Rambeau is today, as a grownup.”
