Tessa Thompson Jokes About Those 'Bodyguard' Remake Rumors with Chris Hemsworth

Tessa Thompson reflected on the various roles she’s played over the years.

“I got to work with Chris [Hemsworth] again which was really fun because we joke so much about all the different spaces that we could occupy together,” she told Elle.

“There was a soft pitch to re-do The Bodyguard, but he would be the singer and I would be the bodyguard. [laughs] That didn’t pan out. But I loved working with him and I grew up on these films, so getting to be in that universe was really a gift. Filming in London was also so fun,” Tessa said.

Tessa shared that she had such a positive experience filming Thor: Ragnarok. “Every day we just showed up to the set and were like, ‘Can we be so ridiculous that we feel like we’re never gonna get to make a movie again?’ And then the fact that it did so well and people really responded to it was so cool,” she said.

Tessa has seen herself grow through all of her roles, especially through three Creed films.

“These films have been such a pleasure to make,” she said. “[Michael B. Jordan] and I talk about this a lot, but there’s been so much personal growth inside of the growth of these characters. It’s very interesting to see that over the course of these three films. They’re postcards to me because I see my own growth inside of the span of these nine years. This third one is also Mike’s directorial debut, and I get to be a part of that as someone who loves him. We’ve been making these things for a long time so I just feel incredibly proud to be part of his journey, too,” Tessa said.

Last month, Tessa hit the red carpet together with Michael B. Jordan and Jonathan Majors hit the red carpet together at the L.A. premiere of Creed III.
