Kathryn Hahn, star of Disney+’s WandaVision, revealed how surprised she was by the number of award nominations the Marvel show racked up for the Emmys. The Emmy-designated actress turned into an instant fan-favorite when she appeared as Agatha Harkness on the MCU’s first TV show, despite the fact that the character is a relatively obscure Marvel Comics figure. On account of Hahn’s portrayal, the TV version of the character vaulted into the mainstream, as even her signature melody turned into a viral sensation in the days after its premiere.
In an interview with NYLON, Hahn reflects on the overwhelming recognition for WandaVision, saying she was driving at the hour of the nomination declarations. In any case, she knew about the enormous surge of congratulations coming in, however she didn’t have the foggiest idea how effective the show had been simply yet. After discovering, she promptly started messaging her co-stars Olsen and Bettany, director Matt Shakman, and producer Kevin Feige. She then, at that point returned home to a pleasant surprise from her daughter.
“It was only a blur. Then, at that point I got back here and I had the option to return home to a mixed drink. I had an Aperol Spritz and an easily overlooked detail of salted cashews sitting tight for me with a couple Post-It notes from my daughter simply saying “Congratulations,” which was really adorable. I was shaking, I was so energized. Not in a bazillion years would I have felt that this show would have gone that distance. No doubt about it we were all very, really past tickled and just so grateful for all that.”
The occasions of WandaVision will have a crucial influence in the impending Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022) film, in which Olsen will reprise her role as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch. While fans realize that Scarlet Witch’s storyline is still to proceed, the equivalent can’t be said for Hahn’s Agatha. In the last scene of WandaVision, Wanda crushed Agatha Harkness and trapped her in her persona of the intrusive neighbor, Agatha, apparently erasing her memory of her true character.
