Gemma Chan Reveals Behind-the-Scenes Photos From Marvel’s ‘Eternals’

One of the biggest perks when it comes to social media is the connection that it can build between celebrities and their audiences. Gemma Chan has consistently been a fan favorite, whether she’s been in the high society of Singapore in ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ or taking the helm as a lead Celestial in the new ‘Eternals’ movie, and the English law-student-turned-actress has just shared some glimpses into life on set while filming the latter in the Canary Islands! Scroll down to see her character Sersi and the other ‘Eternals‘ in action!

While Gemma Chan and Scottish actor Richard Madden (who plays Ikaris in the movie, but who will be recognized by Disney fanatics for his previous role as the dreamy Prince Charming in Cinderella) supposedly only play lovers in ‘Eternals’, the pictures above definitely look like the pictures that a couple would take! Whether these two British actors are romantically involved in real life or not (and it’s definitely possible, although they’re longtime friends and Gemma is supposedly still dating actor Dominic Cooper), the fact that they make an attractive couple is undeniable.

Marvel fans already knew that Gemma Chan is basically a real-life Disney princess by seeing her stun in countless beautiful gowns on the ‘Eternals’ press tour’s red carpets, and her Disney princess beauty is only proved further by the fact that she looks gorgeous even while being soaking wet after filming an underwater scene.

While Kit Harington (who plays Dane Whitman, a very exciting Marvel character) steadfastly denied knowing if singer Harry Styles would be showing up in ‘Eternals’ when he was asked by talk show host Jimmy Fallon, we can see from the picture above that the English actor was clearly lying! See one of the videos in this article about his ‘Eternals’ character and gauge for yourself how well Kit dodged the truth!

While we can’t be certain what the papers on Gemma’s face are, we’re guessing that they’re blotting papers used to cut down on shine when someone is on-camera. The amount of skincare and no-makeup makeup that is involved to make an actor look ‘natural’ will surprise many viewers!

Check out the looks that they donned for their Halloween party on location in the Canary Islands (which was thrown by their iconic co-star Angelina Jolie)!
