Hollywood star Angelina Jolie, who tries out the role of Thena in Chloe Zhao’s superhero film Eternals, describes her character as someone who isn’t very comfortable in times of peace and this trait emanates from the moral wound of the character.
Due to her special ability to manipulate cosmic energy to increase her life force which grants her virtual invulnerability and immortality, Thena is known to be a social misfit. Commenting on this, Angelina says, “Thena is like a soldier who is affected by memories of battle and has PTSD or a moral injury to live with. Thena just assumes a fight awaits her rather than attention and kindness.
Speaking about the complexities of her character, Angelina Jolie says, “So she’s pretty hard-wired, and a lot of her struggle is just hanging on to her spirit and her center and her peace. I understand her and I understand how she feels.
Angelina Jolie further adds: “Thena is not comfortable in times of peace. She does not know how to exist as a civilian, nor as a lover, nor as a friend, but she knows war. “She knows who she is in battle. But she doesn’t know how to go to a party or socialize. She just doesn’t have those skills.”
Eternals, which features an ensemble cast from Salma Hayek, Kit Harington, Gemma Chan, Richard Madden and Kumail Nanjiani, is available to stream on Disney+ Hotstar in English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam.
