Ophelia Lovibond joins cast of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ as an ‘aide to The Collector’

The Hollywood Reporter reports Monday that Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy movie recently added English actress Ophelia Lovibond as a “supporting character.”

Her character in the James Gunn-directed adaptation will “play an aide to a being called The Collector, who gathers artifacts and beings in the hopes of saving them from a foretold galactic annihilation.”

The Collector, aka Taneleer Tivan, is known as one of the Elders of the Universe and, in the Marvel Comics, didn’t have ties to the Guardians of the Galaxy, but interacted with The Avengers and supervillain Thanos, whose inclusion in Guardians has been all but confirmed, when the Mad Titan posed a threat to the Elders.

Ophelia Lovibond, 27, starred in Nowhere Boy, No Strings Attached, Mr. Popper’s Penguins, a few British sitcoms and recently appeared alongside Sam Rockwell in A Single Shot thriller.

The cast already includes Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana and Michael Rooker.

Guardians of the Galaxy comes to theaters August 1, 2014.
