Kate Mara is looking back on that itty bitty role she played in Iron Man 2.
During a new episode of Collider Ladies Night, the 37-year-old actress spoke about the small part and how Marvel teased her about how it could’ve become something bigger, but didn’t in the long run.
If you didn’t know, Kate played a US Marshal who serves Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) a subpoena.
“I had a meeting with Jon Favreau for that and they had said to me, ‘It’s a very, very small part, but it’s with Robert Downey and Jon, and it’ll be really fun. And a lot of times they bring these characters back into bigger more substantial roles,’” Kate explained. “It wasn’t a promise, but it was definitely something that was hinted at to me.”
She adds “that’s the reason why I even took the meeting was because I thought, ‘Well, if there’s a chance of it, why not spend an evening working with Robert Downey Jr. and Jon Favreau? Great. I love them both. They’re amazing. It’ll be a good experience.’”
“That’s exactly what it ended up being,” Kate shared. “It ended up being nothing more than that, but it really was fun. And we were shooting until like four in the morning. But yeah, it’s a weird cameo that turned into really nothing. But I don’t mind!”
Kate has been looking back on a few other of her memorable roles, like her part in Fantastic Four, which wasn’t the best experience for her.
