James Gunn Introduces ‘Ratcatcher’ Star Daniela Melchior To The World And Reveals How She Won The Role

James Gunn, the well-known director of the Marvel Cinematic Universe film series ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ shared a hilarious long Twitter thread and unveiled how the young actor, Daniela Melchior, captured the role of ‘Ratcatcher.’

On July 7, Gunn, who is now working on the next installment of ‘The Suicide Squad,’ jumped into his verified Instagram account and publicized the young actor to the fans of the superhero world; he added a two-photo-gallery in which Melchior is seen playing with a “real” rats on the set of the film, and added a message that reads:

“For Ratcatcher 2, we auditioned hundreds of actors from across the world. @itsdanielamelchior from Portugal ended up being one of 3 actresses to screen test – a test which of course included us making sure she was ok chilling with rats. Here she is on the day she won the role.”

As soon as the director had released the post, a great number of users of the platform jumped into the reply section and asked him about the friendship between the rat and the Portugal-based actor. Gunn referred to it with the following words:

“Rats have been domesticated for over a hundred years. They’re about as different from wild rats as dogs are from wolves. (Though the rats we used in the movie were as wild-looking as tame rats can be).”

The well-known filmmaker also told the world that there are two main rats to play ‘Sebastian,’ the animal character, in the film; he stated:

“The two primary rats who played Sebastian, Jaws and Crisp Ratt, are of course credited in the film, even though their primary job was the difficult task of snuggling with Daniela.”
