Rachel McAdams returned as Christine Palmer in Doctor Strange 2. It is a movie that deals with the concept of the multiverse of Marvel. And Christine Palmer is the love interest of Doctor Strange. Though the character of Rachel McAdams was off the screen despite the fact other casts of Doctor Strange were in other MCU movies. But now she is coming back. Also, there were very low expectations that she would return to the sequel. But when Sam Raimi took the director’s chair, she was a part of the movie.
Rachel McAdams reveals Sam Raimi’s reaction to her being pregnant
In the interview with Variety, she told the reason that sealed the deal for her. She said, “Well, I mean, to get to work with Sam.” But then she revealed the director’s reaction when she told him that she was pregnant. She told, “He was like, ‘This is great. Let’s do it.’ And I’ve got lots of exciting ideas for Christine and her evolution. He took me through the whole journey and it just sounded really fun and thoughtful and I was excited to come back.”
Now, Christine Palmer is back and the actress really enjoyed that action. She even played another variant of the character in the movie. She also shared her experience like that. She said, “I love action. I love being physical. As an actor, I always feel like it gets me out of my head, and fun surprises come out of getting to just move. It was great to get to do that in this one a little bit more. And to wear a cool outfit. I was in scrubs last time — which were super comfortable; I’m not complaining at all. And I did miss them, but it was fun to be really just decked out. I got new hair and I get to wear really hot pink lipstick. All those things that I love, as an actress, to get to do in my job.”
Rachel McAdams also talked about Christine Palmer’s future
There is not much known about the future of Christine in MCU but the actress did talk about it in the interview. Also, with another variant of the character being a part of the movie, there could be more to the character. She even revealed in an old interview that there was another variant in the movie. But it was written off from the script.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is in theatres now.
