The first images have been revealed of Glenn Close in full makeup and costume on the set of Guardians of the Galaxy.
Marvel’s intergalactic superhero ensemble has started filming in London, and Emmy award-winning actress Glenn Close has been pictured on set in full costume – and virtually unrecognisable.
Close plays Nova Prime, leader of the intergalactic military/police force the Nova Corps. She was recently quoted at the Nantucket Film Festival as saying;
“I just did two independent films this summer and I had an absolute ball with fantastic actors. But in August, I’m gonna go off and do the next generation of Marvel Comics/Disney and I get to be the chief police of the galaxy.
“But I’m doing that because it will then afford me to go do the other kind of movies that I really love, and hopefully I will have a great time [on Guardians of the Galaxy]. It’ll be a new experience for me, but practically speaking it will mean that I can do those smaller movies and it’ll be okay.”
Guardians of the Galaxy has a release date of August 1 2015.
