Tessa Thompson Landed “Creed II” after Sylvester Stallone Saw Her on BET

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”.
