Question: What appealed to you about the character of Mantis?
Pom Klementieff: “I love the character so much. When I had the audition, I had no idea how big the character would be. I didn't know it would be that big, but I think it's a really moving and special character.
Question: Marvel’s Kevin Feige has said that there is a relationship of sorts that builds between Mantis and Drax…
Pom Klementieff: “She develops a friendship with him and I think they get along, because they have a weird sense of things and they don't really have the same sense of humor, you know, than everyone else, so they just get along. Yeah. I think what is interesting is that they become friends because of that.”
Question: What was it like working with Kurt Russell?
Pom Klementieff: “He's amazing. He's really funny and generous, down to earth, and really easy to work with. We had a great time. It's amazing to work with a legend.”
Question: Same thing regarding writer/director James Gunn.
Pom Klementieff: “You know, I saw the first movie and I loved it so much. I thought it was so funny, and so moving. When I knew that he wrote the second movie and that he was directing it, it was like, "Okay, just trust him." The atmosphere on set was just really, really calm and you just do your work and you feel confident and he pushes you just the right amount.”
