Wunmi Mosaku has a graceful but steely demeanour: qualities she deploys when bombarded with questions about the eagerly awaited Disney+ TV series Loki, in which she plays Hunter B-15, who, from what I can gather, is the Marvel god of mischief’s nemesis.

Am I right? Mosaku smiled, shook her head, and repeated her mantra: ‘I can tell you nothing.’

The actress became an MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) fan after she saw Black Panther. 

Her Hunter B-15 (a ‘badass’, she would at least reveal) is an officer of the TVA (Time Variance Authority).

And because tricky Loki (Tom Hiddleston) has tampered with time, he’s apprehended by her. Mosaku did stunt training pre-production, because B-15 is ‘ready for battle’.

Now living in Los Angeles with her African-American husband, the Nigerian-born actress told me she misses her family in Manchester (she hasn’t seen them since December 2019) ‘and going to the theatre’.

She also misses crumpets. So much so that she made some herself. She likes them with butter, raspberry jam and …Cheddar cheese. In response to my reaction, she laughed and said: ‘Sometimes I have them with marmalade. And Cheddar!’

She is now filming Call Jane in Connecticut with Sigourney Weaver, Kate Mara and Elizabeth Banks. I’m pretty sure crumpets, jam and cheese are not on the film set menu. 

Loki runs on Disney+ from June 9.
