In Creed II, Tessa Thompson, plays Adonis Creed’s wife (Bianca). In an exclusive interview with Hollywoodlife.com, Thompson revealed that Sylvester Stallone was responsible for her landing such a pivotal role by watching her on BET.
“Ryan Coogler discovered me. He had seen me in a film called “Dear White People” and we met at the Sundance Film Festival and then Ryan was excited about me potentially. So, I came to meet with Mike [Michael B. Jordan], we had a chemistry test that went well, I guess. But Sly happened to see me on BET. I don’t know why he was watching, but I’m glad he was because he immediately called Ryan Coogler and said, ‘She’s our girl! I think it’s got to be her!’ I’m so lucky that little extra push I think sealed the deal”.
