Chukwudi Iwuji Talks Playing The High Evolutionary In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

Fans of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy franchise should brace themselves for one final thrill ride.

Chukwudi Iwuji, who plays ‘The High Evolutionary,’ the lead villain in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,’ discusses how much he enjoys playing a Marvel character who is the polar opposite of himself and mastering character development for this role.

Iwuji goes on to discuss the depths of training that non-actors looking into the entertainment industry may underestimate in terms of what it takes to truly prepare for and be consumed by a role. He advises any young actor or actress who has a similar dream of possibly starring in a major film or Marvel franchise, saying, “Don’t start at the end, start at the beginning.”

He never expected to be a Marvel actor, but he attributes his success to his craft and product of study. Studying the script and doing your homework for any production is an important aspect that will distinguish between actors and actresses who are truly hungry for the grind.

Iwuji confirmed that it was his craft that drew Marvel’s attention and gave him the opportunity to further flesh out his character. One of the most important aspects of acting is seeing one’s imagination come to life through the work of an artist.

Not only will this final installment of the Marvel franchise be received as a proper and official farewell by fans, but Iwuji is also confident that fans will be satisfied with how it all ends. Fans can expect any cliffhangers and unanswered questions from the previous films to be resolved in the final installment of the epic series.
