Some exciting Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 casting news has just emerged. Relative unknown French-Canadian actress, Pom Klementieff, has joined the smash-shit superhero sequel in what has been described as a “key-role.” Who exactly she’ll be playing, however, is being kept firmly under wraps for now.

Pom Klementieff Cast In Mystery ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy 2’ Role

The movie marks Klementieff’s first proper foray into blockbuster territory, having only one other major Hollywood credit to her name, Spike Lee‘s Oldboy, a remake of the South Korean film of the same name. The actress’ work up until that initial break had primarily been within the French film industry.

Born in Canada to a Korean mother and French-Russian father, Klementieff was selected for the mystery part after what The Hollywood Reporter reports was an extensive search for Asian actresses by Marvel.

The film is of course the follow-up to the 2014 megahit which earned over $774 million at the box office and starred Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and the voices of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel.
James Gunn is back for writing and directing duties and the Guardians are expected to crash land back into theaters May 5, 2017.
