The upcoming Disney+ series Ms. Marvel has added a young actress to the cast. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Laurel Marsden has been cast as Zoe Zimmer.
For those unfamiliar with her, Zimmer was a high school classmate of Kamala Khan (aka Ms. Marvel) in the comics. After Kamala acquired her powers, Zimmer was actually the first person she ever saved.
Marsden is relatively new to Hollywood. The only other known project she’s appeared in was the short-lived Quibi show called Survive. Needless to say, this would by far be her biggest role to date.
Ms. Marvel will star Iman Vellani as Khan. It has been in production in Atlanta since November. The show will have four different directors, including Bad Boys for Life’s Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah. Look for it to hit the Disney streaming service in late 2021.
