WATCH: Brie Larson reveals on her new YouTube channel she auditioned for ‘Hunger Games’, ‘Star Wars’
After conquering the big screen, “Captain Marvel” star Brie Larson is ready to explore a different medium as she launched her own channel on YouTube.
As a newbie, Larson sought advice from more experienced content creators about the direction of her channel, as seen in her first video, uploaded yesterday, July 2. Larson revealed in her vlog that she had auditioned for “Star Wars,” “Hunger Games” and “Terminator: Dark Fate.”
The topic was brought up after her fellow YouTuber Swoozie said that he had auditioned for “Solo: A Star Wars Story.” Larson enlisted the films that she had auditioned for but did not get the parts. Swoozie said that it was one of the topics that the actress might consider exploring since viewers wanted to know about it.
Unlike her Marvel superhero role, Larson was shy, “scared,” but eager to learn more about creating content on the platform. The 21-minute video titled “So, I made a decision….” showed a different side of the actress, involving a lot of bloopers of how to record video conference calls.
“I’m reaching out to some YouTube creators that have been able to do, what I think are really interesting, creative, and humane, empathetic things on the platform,” she said.
Larson also joked about her “evil plan” to have the “most popular YouTube channel on Earth.”
The actress got some tips from her mom and her grandmother on what to put up on her channel. They recommended cooking and covering a “cousin’s soccer game.” Larson’s grandmother also promised to text her more ideas as soon as she came up with them.
Other ideas that Larson got from her virtual guests were exploring her hobbies like gaming, gardening and showing her workout routine. Larson shared that she is currently playing “Animal Crossing: New Horizons” on Nintendo Switch. Her fellow YouTubers also suggested giving the viewers a peek at what happens in an actor’s mind while shooting a big movie.
Larson asked them how she could use the platform to highlight her advocacies and to talk about “real issues” while balancing it with more comedic content. The actress included the link to the social media pages of Black artists and activists fighting for racial justice through the Black Lives Matter movement on her video’s description tab. /ra
