MCU fans are likely aware by now that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse Of Madness featured some much-discussed special appearances. When Strange and America Chavez found themselves on Earth-838, the pair came face-to-face with the Illuminati, a group of powerful superheroes who convene to decide the fate of their world.
The Fantastic Four’s Reed Richards was there, as was the Inhuman King Black Bolt. But perhaps the most recognizable face on the team was Professor Charles Xavier, played once again by fan-favorite Sir Patrick Stewart.
Patrick Stewart Gave Kind Advice to Xochitl Gomez
Speaking to SYFY, Xochitl Gomez, star of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, revealed the thoughtful “important” guidance given to her by Sir Patrick Stewart, who played Professor Xavier in the movie.
Given his decades in the business, any actor just starting out would be wise to hang on Patrick Stewart’s every word, and it seems as though that’s exactly what Xochitl Gomez did.
Especially important are his thoughts about paying it forward and being a welcoming, approachable person. Stewart is a regular on the convention circuit, often participating in Q&A panels and meeting fans, and he always has a genuine, kind, and gentlemanly air to him.
Hopefully, this sense of openness to new ideas from their talent is a trend that continues for Marvel. The MCU has been going for so long now that many new actors that it brings in for its characters are going to have some level of fandom for these shows and movies, making what they have to say especially valuable.
