Sophia Di Martino, who plays the part of Sylvie in Loki, quite recently spoke about her auditioning process for the critically acclaimed MCU spinoff Disney+ Show. As per a report on Comicbook, Sophia Di Martino was sent a fake scene by the director of the series, Kate Herron, which stated that the name of the characters was "Bob & Sarah". In addition to the same, the star even revealed that the only thing that she knew about the project was that Kate Herron, who also directed the first two seasons of Netflix's Sex Education, is helming it. Read on to know more.

Sophia Di Martino on the super-secret "Loki" audition process:

While conversing with the officials at Comicbook, Di Martino revealed that at first, she didn't know anything about the show. Adding to the same, the Loki cast member revealed that she was told it was just an unknown project. Later on, she revealed that she and Herron had worked on a short film in the past, which is how she knew her. Adding to that, Martino said that Herron messaged her to say, 'I'm working on this project,', which, in her opinion, was "really vague".

Herron, as per Di Martino, further said that she would like to see what does the actor do with the character and her agent will be in touch. Finally, Di Martino said that she received a  "very short scene" between "Bob and Sarah", for which she just gave a single take. She was then quoted reiterating that she had no clue what it was for. As per a report on ScreenRant, it is only after being cast as the character, she learned about the other elements of Loki, such as the TVA, Miss Minutes, and the Time Keepers, amongst others.

Over the years, Marvel has developed a reputation for conducting auditions in such a fashion, where the actor trying for the part is given very few, or sometimes no details about their part and is seldom given a scene. As reported earlier, Black Panther and Without Remorse star Michael B. Jordan had to go through a similar ordeal while doing a screen test for Kylo Ren, the part that eventually went to Marriage Story star Adam Driver. It is believed that the aforementioned "Bob & Sarah" scene is reminiscent of one of the banter sequences between the two Loki variants that is a part of the third episode of the limited series.
