Highlights from Hollywood at Home featuring Travina Springer: 

On her character, Kylie, on “The Irrational”: “Kylie feels like the person that I would want to hang out with. She is the life of the party, and she makes a lot of irrational decisions. In a lot of ways, I’m more responsible than her…but she’s almost a heightened version of myself…I just use my lived experiences as a queer black woman.”

Taking on a Marvel role is a lot of pressure: “I felt a lot of pressure because this is an established character that means a lot to people. The whole [Marvel] world is very important…you have to have tough skin and buckle up if you’re going to do anything Marvel, because the fans are going to let you know.”

On working with Clint: “I was directed by Clint Eastwood and I did a scene with him, so it was like a double whammy…He was so nice…really charming and I was like, ‘Okay, I get it. I absolutely understand.’ And I was also told ahead of time that Clint Eastwood only does about one take or two. He keeps things moving…but when we got to set, he was like, ‘Let’s just improvise.’” 

On being a sign language interpreter: “I have been a sign language interpreter for a while. That was my day job. I was interpreting and doing that in between gigs. It just came very naturally for me and I enjoyed it, and so I continued some of it in college, and eventually did an interpreter training program. I would volunteer with the deaf community, and do things like that in order to hone my skills and get a better understanding of the culture.” 

On interpreting Jamie Foxx through sign language: “Every take, [Foxx] would say another joke, another line, and I’m having to interpret this nonsense coming out of his mouth…It was my first gig actually out here.”
