Why Minn-Erva From Captain Marvel Looks So Familiar
In true Marvel fashion, Captain Marvel's cast is packed with fan-favorite actors. Alongside them is up-and-coming star Gemma Chan, playing Starforce member Minn-Erva. Chan has risen through the ranks of British television and film before appearing in a few worldwide blockbusters. Here's where you've spotted her over the years.
In 2009, Chan scored her first major credit by appearing in a special episode of Doctor Who alongside the popular Tenth Doctor, played by David Tennant . "The Waters of Mars," which won a Hugo Award, is set on the red planet in 2059, where the Doctor encounters a human colony which is endangered by his presence. Chan plays Mia Bennett, a geologist, who survives the Doctor's unintentional meddling with the structure of time. Chan didn't have a lot of screentime, but the episode, which was one of Tennant's final outings as the Doctor, was well-received, setting her up for more roles in the future.
