- Janeshia Adams-Ginyard’s Marvel character received a name in “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.”
- The “Black Panther” actor told Insider that she wasn’t told about the name before it was revealed.
- She said she found out through fans sending screenshots of the name in the show’s end credits.
“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” actor Janeshia Adams-Ginyard said that she had to find out her character’s name through her fans.
The latest Marvel movie is Adams-Ginyard’s third appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the Dora Milaje warrior, Nomble. However, Adams-Ginyard’s character did not receive her name until her second appearance in “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” Disney+ series.
The Dora Milaje actor told Insider that she wasn’t aware of her character’s name, and only found out because fans sent her screenshots of the name from the credits of episode four.
“I didn’t even know, which is the crazy part,” she said. “So, ‘The Falcon and The Winter Soldier’ would come out on Fridays, but I think there was an early release on Thursday because I was getting screenshots from fans and I was like, ‘What are you talking about?'”
The actor continued: “I said, ‘Oh, I got a name!’ Next thing you know, I have my name and my picture, and the fans already had a Nomble Wiki fan Marvel page set up that told me what tribe I came from. And I’m like, ‘Okay, thank you.'”
Nomble appears briefly in episode four of “Falcon and Winter Soldier” as one of the Dora Milaje warriors sent to capture Baron Zemo (Daniel Brühl) after he was set free by Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) and Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan).
In order to get Zemo, Nomble, Ayo (Florence Kasumba) and Yama (Zola Williams) swiftly defeat the aforementioned superheroes as well as the government-appointed Captain America John Walker (Wyatt Russell) and his sidekick Lamar (Cle Bennett).
Adams-Ginyard told Insider that she enjoyed her time on “The Falcon and The Winter Soldier” set.
“Anthony Mackie’s cracking jokes all the time,” she said. “He’s having fun with Sebastian, and you can’t help but laugh. He is making the entire cast and crew laugh.”
“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” is in theaters now.
