Hollywood’s love of superhero movies continues with the launch of Paramount + Secret headquarters. Momona Tamada Play as Maya, a young girl who discovers the headquarters of the world’s most powerful superhero hidden beneath her friend Charlie’s house. Maya, Charlie and their friends must protect headquarters and save the world. HollywoodLife spoke EXCLUSIVELY with Momona about her brand new role.
“Maya is known to be a military kid. She’s used to moving around different bases, so she’ll be a bit more self-contained, I would say,” Momona said. HollywoodLife. “She definitely built a bit of a wall around her, but I think throughout the movie we get to see her mature and really open up to these new friends. It’s really cool. She has a bit of history with some of the characters, so getting to see the whole journey is really fun. “
Momona starred with Walker Scobell, Keith L. Williams, Abby James Witherspoonand Kezii Curtis. The young actress revealed that she and her co-stars “click very quickly. They actually brought us in two weeks early for group bonding and all that. So we were able to really get comfortable with each other before filming. I’m really grateful to say that my co-stars from Secret Headquarters are definitely some of my best friends. “
Momona and the cast have to do a lot of their own stunts in the action movie. During the film’s press conference, Momona admitted that she accidentally kicked Keith in the face while filming a scene. Keith admitted that his face was “directly by her shoe”, and that’s how Momona’s foot touched Keith’s face.
Secret headquarters couldn’t be more different with Momona’s breakout role as Claudia on Babysitter Club. “They are like opposing characters,” admitted Momona. “The process of auditioning and taking on this new role is a completely different thing for me. It’s a bit of a challenge. Claudia is easygoing and fun. Maya is very kind and a lot more laid back and feels cold, so that’s definitely a different dynamic altogether. “
Owen Wilson also plays the role of Charlie’s father and the most powerful superhero in the world. Momona said HollywoodLife that it was “wonderful” to work with Owen. “He is a kind person in real life. He’s just a great guy. He would talk to us and make sure we were all comfortable during the shoot. Working with someone like that is definitely really inspiring, especially since he’s so experienced in this industry,” she said.
With superhero movies, there’s always talk of a sequel. Momona revealed that she would “absolutely enjoy” doing a second Secret headquarters movie. “I think it definitely depends on how the movie is done, but I would love to revisit these characters. I love all the actors, so working together again and being in the same environment together would be such a dream,” she noted.
Fans were shocked again in March 2022 when Netflix canceled its important baby Babysitter Club after two seasons. There was an overwhelming response to the cancellation of the show.
Momona said, “I think for all of us, it’s great to see everyone’s love for the show. “Honestly, it was a bittersweet thing for us to let go of that. I hope we can bring some light into some people’s lives. I think the cancellation almost brought everyone together. I think that was the first time I really realized the impact Babysitter Club done on everyone. I think it sucks that we don’t get another look at the characters, but it’s really fun as it lasts. I hope it has brought some happiness or comfort to people when they watch the show. “
