Fans across the world are eager to watch how the latest dazzling stunt sequences will surpass those in Fast and Furious 9, which is expected to be an explosive instalment in the overall scheme of the years-long saga.
We finally have confirmation as to who precisely Larson will be portraying in the newest (and apparently final) instalment of the action movie franchise, and how her Fast and Furious character ties into the illustrious history of the series.
In an interview with Total Film, Larson revealed what to anticipate from her character Tess as well as the unexpected connection to another Fast and Furious character.
“Tess is Mr Nobody’s daughter,” she reveals. “She is technically Agency, but she’s kind of a bridge, in a way. She doesn’t go along with the way that the Agency’s headed now that her father isn’t there. She believes in the legacy that her father set up, which is standing with Dom and standing with the Toretto family, and is fighting for that.”
“Dom knows that she has a strong mind and definitely respects that she’s gone out of her way to talk to him and wants to build trust,” she adds. “What he asks of Tess is a test. Like, if it’s an impossible task, and she can get it done, then that’s family for life.”
“I would say Tess is a little bit of a mystery,” Larson says. “She is part of the Agency, but she also goes rogue and edges more towards the family side, but that means she has a lot to prove. When Dom gives her an impossible task that’s going to require a lot of thought and effort and also is putting herself at risk, she doesn’t question it.”
“I think that shows who she is, that she’s willing to go to those lengths. She agrees to do it because she wants to show up for this family the way that her father did. She’s also really intelligent. Tess plays the game well. She’s not afraid of going on her own mission to do what she feels is right in her heart.”
