Mark Ruffalo and Tatiana Maslany had a remarkable connection while filming She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.
During a TCA panel discussion for Disney+'s superhero show, the executive producers, Kat Coiro and Jessica Gao, shared how they believed Ruffalo, 54, had served as somewhat of a mentor to leading character Maslany, 36, during filming.
While discussing the topic with the actress and the audience, Coiro said Ruffalo, 54, had "been playing this role for a decade. Hulk has been Hulk for a long time; you [Maslany] were new to it."
"But then he came in and was so open to this new genre, and so, you know, deferential to you because you've been doing it and there were all these little life imitating art moments that I think helped your guys' relationships as actors but also really informed the characters," Coiro explained. "You and Mark had so many little connections."
Aaron Paul is spotted filming scenes for Black Mirror series six
Aaron Paul, 42, was spotted filming scenes for series six of Black Mirror on the streets of Rye in East Sussex this week. The actor, 42, was spotted on location with Kate Mara, 39, who signed up for the new season earlier this month along with fellow actor Josh Hartnett, 44.Screen star Aaron was seen dressed in a brown jacket and a shirt with black trousers as he walked through the typical British town, which is located near the South Coast of England.
Agreeing with the statement, Gao, 38, added: "I really mirrored what was happening in the script, the dynamic, but also I have to say, I mean, it really is a testament to how present you and Mark were like, every minute of it."
"Because to have all the accouterment there and having a camera dangling in front of your face, but still just being very real and with each other," the TV writer said. "And when we watched you guys, it really felt like, 'Oh, these two are cousins who have been bickering for years at every family reunion.' Together."
"And to the point where you two inspired additions to the script," noted Coiro. "I remember the first day you guys were together and playing off each other and we were like, 'Oh, we need to see more of this.' And it led to building out the montage that is in the trailer a lot ... that was really based on your guys' chemistry and your energy."

During the chat, Maslany also shared her own experience filming with Ruffalo, noting that their characters as She-Hulk and Hulk "sort of feel like outsiders."
"They do kind of feel like they don't fit in the world," she elaborated. "You know like we're sort of in these little gray suits with a camera in front of our faces. And there's something that informs the character through that we're not in like, super cool super-suits."
"We don't feel cool. So there's something about that feels okay to me," she added.

"And talking to her about it, too," added Maslany. "She's an actor and it's it's much harder for a woman who's six-foot-seven to to be cast because their limited view of what an actor is supposed to look like, or how tall they're supposed to be... it was it was really great. I mean, she was amazing. She was awesome."
