While promoting Season 3 of Halt and Catch Fire, Mackenzie Davis, who plays Cameron Howe in the AMC period drama, chats about appearing in the upcoming Blade Runner sequel and rumors that she is up for the role of Domino in the Deadpool sequel.
So, is there any truth to the rumor that she'll be playing the mutant with the power of probability manipulation? "No! [laughs] It's very interesting," Davis told GQ. People keep sending me printouts being like, 'This is so cool!' And I'm like, 'Right? I also think it's cool! But it's not true!'
"I mean. I'd love to keep the ruse going. It's sort of cool that people think I'm doing Deadpool. But no! I don't have any news to share. I wish I did!"
As for the Blade Runner sequel, can she share any details about her role?
"I… cannot do that! [laughs] But it's a whole rarefied world of talented people that I am extremely geeked to be in the presence of," she offered. "I've only shot with Ryan [Gosling] and Ana de Armas, but Ana is lovely, Ryan is kind and cool, and Denis Villeneuve, the director, is truly a special human being."
Was she a fan of the 1982 original?
"Yes! It's my favorite movie," the 29-year-old actress shared. "It's the craziest thing in the world—it's something I've thought about since I was in college. I remember being like, Goddammit, I want to be in this. And then I said to my agent sort of from the beginning: 'Hey, just FYI, if they ever make a Blade Runner sequel… keep me in mind.' Wow, maybe that should be a secret. Fuck."
The Blade Runner sequel is to be released on October 6, 2017.
