This September, for the first time ever, we'll see the Inhuman Royal Family in live-action. Even though some of those involved in the show's productionhave said it will remain grounded, actress Serinda Swan explained how her powers worked on Inhumans on a recent set visit.
Swan plays Medusa, a character who ultimately has complete control over her hair, being able to control its size and movement. According to Swan, the hair powers are "a trip to work with."
"I didn't go to acting school, but if I would've, I would hope there would be a day on head movements. Like, 'You grab him by the neck, with your hair!'" Swan exclaimed.
On set, Swan said she envisioned her hair mimicking the movements her hands would make.
"You use the hand movements that you would do. That's what I do. I do it first how I would do it with my limbs and then from there, you mimic the same facial features that you would do because that's basically what it is for her," reflected Swan. "It's another appendage. So yes, there's definitely days and moments where I see things and it's like, 'Oh, I do that with my hair. Oh, it does that too. OK.'"
