Speaking of her role, the star recently admitted she was shocked to have been given it despite turning 55.

The actress, who will star as the gender-swapped Ajak in the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe film, revealed how "grateful" she was to be cast, admitting that it fills her with "excitement" for the future.

"I was shocked to get that role in my 50s," she told AARP magazine.

"I felt a sense of gratitude and excitement, not only for this but for what it meant about the possibilities for the future."

Ajak is the "leader" of the Eternals, a character described as being full of wisdom and maternal to the others, a concept that Salma previously shared with Total Film magazine, admitting that they decided to "tackle the concept of leadership from the perspective of motherhood".

"Instead of just changing the gender, I proposed to [Chloe Zhao, the director] to really bring something that is very specific to womanhood."
