What did Alexandra Daniels say about portraying Captain Marvel?

Daniels opened up to her fans during a Twitch stream about getting the part in Marvel's animated series.

She went on to tell fans that the role was a surprise but she was excited about joining the character's legacy.

“When I auditioned they were looking for a Brie Larson voice double,... Daniels explained to fans.

...So they sent a clip of Brie Larson from the movie and I was like cool, I can do that and I did it and like a month later they were like you booked it. And that was my first voice over job ever.

...I thought I was going to just be like Brie Larson’s voice double, I’m not going to get any credit, they’re going to say it was her,... she continued. ...Until the day the first episode came out and it had my name, my agents were like you can’t talk about it, you can’t say anything, you cant promote yourself, you can’t do anything until we see it’s you or Brie Larson....

She then went on to talk about the filming process and being surrounded by some of Marvel's most iconic actors.

...And there I was with the likes of Samuel L. Jackson and Mark Ruffalo and I was like OK this is cool, this is not a thing I expected for my life,... Daniels explained.

...Because it’s Disney, they don’t give you the episodes, they just give you your lines, well, my scenes '… ' and then you’re in a big room, a giant sound studio, and it’s just you standing there and they hadn’t done any of the animation yet so you’re like thinking about what it was gonna look like in your brain, imagining how they wanted it to be and wingin’ it.”
