She-Hulk's Titania Actor Talks Embracing Her Accent And Influencer Behavior – Screen Rant

She-Hulk’s Titania actor talks embracing her accent and influencer behavior, and discusses the concept of someone like her being a Marvel villain.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law star, Jameela Jamil, discusses embracing her character Titania's Los Angeles accent and influencer behavior. The show, based on the popular Marvel Comics character She-Hulk, premiered on Disney+ back in August and explores a different area within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, focusing on law firm GLK&H and their division specializing in cases of superpowered beings. She-Hulk: Attorney at Law follows attorney Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany) and her complicated life as she turns into the eponymous hero after getting cross-contaminated with the blood of her cousin, Bruce Banner. In addition to Jamil and Maslany, the series stars Ginger Gonzaga, Josh Segarra, Steve Coulter, and Mark Ruffalo.
Fans of the comics are familiar with the character of Mary MacPherran, or Titania, a constant rival of She-Hulk's who seeks fame through the use of her abilities. Following a brief appearance early in the series, Titania, now portrayed as a social media influencer, returned to create problems for Walters in episode 5, titled "Mean, Green, and Straight Poured into These Jeans." Trademarking the name "She-Hulk," Titania filed a lawsuit against Walters and turned the label into a line of beauty products. Through their interactions at Titania's popup event, as well as the courtroom, audiences got their first real look at Jamil's character, whose accent and demeanor have made her a hilarious favorite.

In speaking with TV Insider, Jameela Jamil explained some of the creative decisions surrounding Titania, including her L.A. accent and identity as an influencer within She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. The actor said that her voice was one of the things that helped bring the character to life, and that the way she looks and acts added to the show's satire, as well as reflected on the idea of an influencer being a villain in the MCU. See what Jamil shared below:
"It’s a very influencer accent. It definitely helped bring her to life. We wanted her to be quite cartoonish in her appearance and in her portrayal. And there’s a lot of brilliant spoof and satire in She-Hulk. So we were satirizing the idea of the absolute worst kind of influencer. What some influencers put out into the world is genuinely a bit evil and the lies they tell and the way they make people feel. So it felt quite fitting to have an influencer play a supervillain."
Jamil also spoke on Titania's ability to get inside Walters' head, calling her character "petty" and adding that she enjoys that quality of hers. Building up to the release of She-Hulk, The Good Place alum had teased that Titania would be an "annoying" villain, but fans of the show appear to enjoy her thus far. Her "She-Hulk" ad campaign, as well as her interactions with fans and posing outside the courthouse for them to take pictures of her, represents a heightened version of many pop culture figures and adds to the hilarity.
Jameela Jamil continues to keep audiences excited for more Titania through her own social media posts, and knowing she will return in future She-Hulk: Attorney at Law episodes, it will be interesting to see what tactics she tries next. While Titania may be portrayed differently from the comics, her powers remain the same, so viewers should expect more fighting between her and the titular heroine. With the season already passing its halfway mark, audiences will have to keep their eyes peeled for where Titania may pop up next with new episodes of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law airing Thursdays on Disney+.
