Last weekend, the cast of Shazam! held an event that honored multicultural kids from across the nation for being their own superheroes and doing amazing things in their communities. Following the event, Geeks of Color took part in sit-down interviews with the cast.
I had the opportunity to interview Marta Milans. Marta plays Rosa Vasquez, the foster mother who takes in 14-year-old Billy Batson (Asher Angel). While being a hero in her own right, she is oblivious to Billy’s superhero alter ego, Shazam (Zachary Levi). Billy and his foster brother Freddy Freeman (Jack Dylan Grazer) work together to honor what it is to be a hero, all while still taking full advantage of all the wonderful things that come with having superpowers.
Besides starring in Shazam!, the Spanish actress co-stars in one of Spain’s highly-anticipated Netflix series, El Embarcadero (The Pier).
