Eiza González stars in Godzilla vs Kong, so let’s get to know the actress a little, considering her age, Instagram, previous roles and more.
For those who have been craving blockbuster thrills, Godzilla vs Kong has arrived to save 2021.
Like a number of other highly anticipated movies – Dune, Black Widow etc. – the film was originally set for a November 2020 release but was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Now, it has finally reached cinemas and HBO Max, screening from Wednesday, March 31st 2021.
It offers audiences a continuation of both Kong: Skull Island and Godzilla: King of the Monsters while serving as the fourth instalment of Legendary’s MonsterVerse. It was directed by Adam Wingard, who has previously helmed such efforts as You’re Next, The Guest and Blair Witch.
The likes of Alexander Skarsgård, Millie Bobby Brown, Rebecca Hall, Kyle Chandler and Brian Tyree Henry star, but let’s take a moment to highlight Godzilla vs Kong’s Eiza González…
Eiza González stars in Godzilla vs Kong
The 31-year-old Mexican actress stars as Maya Simmons, an Apex Cybernetics executive, and Walter Simmons’ (played by Demián Bichir) daughter.
In conversation with ScreenRant, she explained that she had good fun playing the part:
“… I didn’t want to make her what could technically fall into a stereotypical version of a villain. I didn’t want that to happen. It was really important to me for her to have something that made her redeeming and fun to watch. So, I really liked that I got the chance to play with comedy, because I hadn’t had the chance to do that before. It was fun, because I got to be silly sometimes.”
When asked about what she thinks attracts generations of audiences to Godzilla and Kong, she explained: “I didn’t really grow up with them, but I also know of them. But I think that now that I’ve gotten more educated, I feel like what happens is we love to believe in what it would be like to live in the world that we live in with Titans or dinosaurs walking around. I think that’s why Jurassic Park was so successful, as well.”
She added: “We like to believe in these things larger than life.”
Now, let’s consider where audiences may have seen her on screens before Godzilla vs Kong.
