‘Deadpool 2’ Star Brianna Hildebrand Talks Playing First Big Screen LGBTQ Superhero

Deadpool 2 star Brianna Hildebrand “felt a lot of responsibility” in portraying Negasonic Teenage Warhead for a second time — this time as the genre’s first openly gay superhero on the big screen.

“[Star and co-writer Ryan Reynolds] sent me an email about it while they were in the writing process asking if I would mind if they gave Negasonic a girlfriend, and I was like, ‘Mind? I’m ecstatic about that,’” Hildebrand told Red Carpet News TV.

“I just asked him to not make it — which I knew he wouldn’t, obviously, and the writers [Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick] — but I just felt it would be more impactful maybe if it was just kind of mentioned, if it wasn’t just like, ‘Negasonic’s gay now, and now that’s what we’re gonna focus on.’ So yeah, I think he and the writers did it beautifully and it definitely worked out the way I had wanted it to.”
