‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ star Olli Haaskivi Talks Playing Dr. Wilfred Nagel

Olli Haaskivi appears in episode three Marvel’s The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, which is out today.  Olli plays the name on everyone’s lips this week, Dr. Wilfred Nagel. He is the doctor responsible for the super soldier serum having reverse engineered Dr. Abraham Erskine’s (Stanley Tucci’s character in the franchise) serum. This was a pivotal episode and character for the series as the hunt for the super solider serum is in full force, and Dr Nagel comes face-to-face with Anthony Mackie (Falcon), Daniel Brühl (Zemo), Emily VanCamp (Sharon Carter) and Sebastian Stan (Winter Soldier) in his lab who all want to know the truth.  

We had the opportunity to interview Olli about his role on the Marvel’s ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ and other upcoming projects he’s currently working on.

Olli is a chameleon who can truly play any role he feels passionately about (including teachers, a doctor, a villain, a waiter, etc. – you name it!) His film and TV credits include: “The Deuce”, “The Sinner”, “Manifest”, and “Oh Jerome, No”plus the films Motherless Brooklyn directed by Edward Norton, The Miseducation of Bindu directed by Prarthana Mohan, and Nancy directed by Christina Choe. Olli has appeared in the off-Broadway premieres of Bella: An American Tall Tale (Playwrights Horizons), Who’s Your Baghdaddy?
