Zazie Beetz is on her way to becoming a household name. She stars as Van in the critically acclaimed series, Atlanta, and is set to make her theatrical debut as Domino in Deadpool 2.
But, the price of higher profile roles comes with fame, which can be a downside for some creatives.
Last month, Beetz told Essence about how her newfound fame with the success of Atlanta is causing her to be more self-conscious in public.
"I love to dance at Afropunk and express myself and then I saw people whipping out their phones to take pictures of me," she said. "It was the first time I felt like I have to dampen myself so I don't feel so exposed."
Now, in an interview with GQ, she relayed her concerns about it with Deadpool 2.
"I really wonder what that's all gonna be like. I'll find out soon enough. Maybe it won't be that bad at all, maybe it'll be totally fine. There are enough famous people who lead very lovely lives."
As for playing the kickass comic book character, Beetz admits that she's "more of a drama girl," but she's still hype to portray the mercenary.
"It's pretty cool! To have, like, the super suit," she said. "For me, costumes are always a big thing. I like costumes. It always gets me into a role, especially something like that, which is so specific. I don't know, I never thought I'd do something like that! It's surreal, I don't know it's completely sunk in yet."
Deadpool 2 is set to premiere in theaters on May 18.
