Chatting with Michael Rooker while on the Set of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 | #GotGVol2Event #GotGVol2

While on the set of Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2, one of the actors I was able to interview was Michael Rooker, who reprises his role of Yondu in the sequel. Michael is one of my favorite actors – I absolutely loved him in The Walking Dead as Merle – and as Yondu in the first Guardians movie. To me, he always seemed like he is an off the wall and fun type of guy. And boy was I right! The first thing he did when he walked in the interview room was look all of us ladies right in the face. He said “let me look at you – y’all are purty”. Not many actors take the time to look at you – really look at you – when you are interviewing them. He even asked us several questions throughout the interview, like where we were from and how many kids we each have. It was like he truly wanted to know about us as individuals. I think we all appreciated this, I know I did.

Dave Bautista Talks About His Role as #Drax on the Set of #GotGVol2! | #GOTGVol2Event

I think we can all agree that Dave Bautista seems like an intimidating man. I will tell you that he is bigger in person – but much less intimidating. As he walked in to the interview room on the set of Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 last May – in full Drax costume and makeup – I was a little bit speechless. What a force walking through that door – what an incredible sight! I am a giant Guardians of the Galaxy fan and to see Drax sitting in front of me was pretty amazing. But Dave is probably one of the sweetest, soft-spoken, and down-to-Earth guys I have ever met. We had a great conversation about how he felt about coming back to the set, how long it takes for him to become Drax, and he what he loves about his character.

Zoe Saldana Shares Tips on Marriage, Fitness, & Empowering Women | #GotGVol2Event

While on the set of Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 last May, I had the amazing opportunity to sit down and talk with Zoe Saldana. This was a live set and because she was so busy filming, we only had a few moments with her (she was in full Gamora garb and looked AMAZING, by the way). Even though our time with her was short, my interview with her was one of the most inspirational few moments of my life. She stressed how important women’s health is and how we have to take care of ourselves, which is easy to forget when you are a busy mom. Ladies, we should come first!

Chris Pratt Confessed to Stealing from the Set of Guardians of the Galaxy

Last May I was totally blessed with the opportunity to check out the set of Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2. I was able to watch part of a scene being filmed, check out the wardrobe and props departments, and oh yeah, interview some of the amazing cast. So of course, I go to interview Mr. Chris Pratt, Star-Lord himself. I have been a fan of Chris’ for a long time – The O.C., Parks and Recreation, Delivery Man – and more recently Jurassic Park and Lego Movie. I follow him on Snapchat (and if you don’t, you should). He is hilarious – and an incredible actor.

That Time I Was on the Set of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 in Atlanta | #GOTGVol2Event

Back in May 2016, I got to take a super top secret trip to the set of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. It was an experience that I will never forget. While there, I got to check out the wardrobe trailer, the props department, and watch a scene of the movie being filmed (I also got to interview most of the cast – those interviews are coming soon!). I don’t think it actually hit me until I had to sign the non-disclosure (and basically my life away) as I entered Marvel Studios. All of a sudden I thought – wow, I am actually at Marvel Studios and am going to see so many behind the scenes stuff for GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Vol. 2! I could put 1,000 exclamation points after that and it still wouldn’t be enough to describe how I was feeling at that moment. As you all know, I am a huge Marvel fan – so this was a pretty amazing experience for me. I am so thrilled to FINALLY be able to tell you guys all about it!

Doctor Strange is Visually Stunning PLUS 4 More Reasons to Go See It Now! | #DoctorStrange

As a total comic book nerd and someone who loves all things Marvel, I had to check out Doctor Strange opening weekend. I know I have said it before but he isn’t my favorite character from the comic books. In the books he is a little boring (in my opinion) and I don’t get the whole magic thing. I am a fan of other super hero abilities – magic always seemed tooo powerful and no fun. Like with Superman, if noone can defeat him, then what is the point? I hope that makes sense. But I went in to the film with an open mind and an open heart. I was hoping to fall in love with Doctor Strange. I have loved what Marvel Films has been doing with the Marvel Cinematic Universe and I was ready to have my mind blown. And I did.

A Sneak Peak at Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (& I Have A BIG Secret) | #GotGVol2 #GotGVol2Event

I am a huge Marvel fan as most of you know, but what you may not know is that the Guardians of the Galaxy comic book series has been one of my favorites for years. So when Marvel announced they were making a movie, I freaked out. I was beyond excited. I couldn’t wait to see it. I loved it and have been itching for the second one since the moment I finished watching the first one on opening night.

Captain America: Civil War is the Best Marvel Movie Yet | #CaptainAmericaEvent #Marvel

While in LA last month, I got to be one of the first people to see Captain America: Civil War – almost a month before it hit theaters (which is today!). To say I was blown away is an understatement. Most of you know how big of a Marvel fan I am, so I have been looking forward to this film for a long time. I knew going in that it most likely would vary from the comic books, which is a good thing because I like to be surprised (and Joe Russo, one of the Directors, agrees with me), but I was surprised by just how much. It was like watching a whole new story and I loved the way they did it.

Exclusive Interview with Marvel Directors: Anthony & Joe Russo

I am a total Marvel Fan Girl, and if you haven’t figure that out yet, then you haven’t been paying a lot of attention to my site. So when I found out that one of my exclusive interviews in LA would be Anthony & Joe Russo, the directors of Captain America: Civil War (and Captain America: The Winter Soldier) I was beyond excited! These brothers will also be directing Avengers: Infinity War Parts I & II – which are movies I cannot wait for.
