“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” actress Janecia Adams Guinyard said she had to find out her character’s name through her fans.
The latest Marvel movie is Adams-Ginyard’s third appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Dora Milaje’s warrior, Nomble. However, Adams-Ginyard’s character didn’t get his name until his second appearance in the Disney+ series “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.”
The Dora Milaje actress told that she was unaware of her character’s name, and only found out because fans sent her screenshots of the name from the credits for the fourth episode.
“I didn’t even know, which is the crazy part,” she said. So, ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ comes out on Fridays, but I think there was an early release on Thursday because I was getting screenshots from the fans and I was like, ‘What are you talking about? “
The actor continued, “I said, ‘Oh, you’ve got a name!'” Next thing you know, I have my name and picture, and the fans already had a Marvel fan page on the Nomble Wiki that told me which tribe I came from. And I’m like, “Okay, thank you.”
Numbel appears briefly in episode four of “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” as one of Dora Milaje’s warriors sent to capture Baron Zemo (Daniel Bruhl) after he was shot by Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) and Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan).
In order to get Zemo, Nomble, Ayo (Florence Kasumba) and Yama (Zola Williams), quickly defeat the aforementioned superheroes as well as the government-appointed Captain America John Walker (Wyatt Russell) and his sidekick Lamar (Clee Bennett).
Adams told Ginyard that she enjoyed her time on the set of “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.”
“Anthony Mackie cracking jokes all the time,” she said. “He’s having fun with Sebastian, and you can’t help but laugh. He makes the cast and crew laugh.”
