Emily VanCamp joins Chris Evans in Captain America: The Winter Soldier
You might not know who ‘Revenge’ star Emily VanCamp is right now, but the young actress has been steadily proving herself in TV land for a couple of years, waiting for her big break in the movies. Well, it looks like she might have found it, landing the lead actress role opposite Chris Evans in CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER, beating out fellow young actresses Jessica Brown-Findlay, Alison Brie, Teresa Palmer, Emilia Clarke, Imogen Poots, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead. It was generally believed that one of those actresses would land the coveted gig, but VanCamp came out of nowhere and nabbed the part.
Of course, now the question is; what role will she play? The news didn’t reveal what character she’d be playing, but it did say that she’d be a romantic interest to Steve Rodgers. Fans of the comics can deduce that she’d be most likely be playing Sharon Carter, Peggy Carter’s niece. CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER stars Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Frank Grillo, Anthony Mackie, Scarlett Johansson, Toby Jones, Cobie Smulders and Samuel L. Jackson. The Russo brothers will direct the film that hits theaters everywhere on April 4th, 2014. (Deadline)
