Disney Hiring Actors to Play “Eternals” Characters in Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure
While Marvel Studios Eternals doesn’t arrive until November 5, Disney is already making plans to feature the characters in Avengers Campus. According to The Orange County Register, Disney is looking to hire three actors to portray Eternals characters.
Online auditions are being accepted through August 7 for the roles of Kingo, Sersi, and Phastos. Each role calls for unique traits.
Kingo has superior strength, charisma, and wit, along with a dancer’s flair. Disney is seeking actors between 5′ 10″ and 6′ tall with an athletic build. In the film, Kingo is played by Kumail Nanjiani.
Sersi is described as empathetic and powerful. She also has a strong connection to humans. For this role, Disney is looking for an actor with a “slim to athletic build.” Gemma Chan plays Sersi in the Eternals film.
The third role is Phastos, who has superhuman strength, exceptional intellect, and strong will. The ideal actor will be between 6′ and 6′ 3″ tall. It also helps if the actor resembles Brian Tyree Henry, who stars as Phastos in the movie.
All three actors must have high energy and the ability to lift 30-pound objects. The characters will likely join other Marvel characters like Loki, Black Widow, and more this fall.
