October 30th, 2018 by Marc Comments

The Fast & Furious spinoff, Hobbs & Shaw has just added another pretty damned cool cast member.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson shared and image of new character Hattie Shaw who will be played by Mission Impossible: Fallout star Vanessa Kirby and, in Mission: Impossible she was related to one of the franchise’s first villains and here, to, she is related to a character from the franchise.

Hattie is the sister, as the name suggests, of Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw and also Luke Evans’ Owen Shaw. and Fast and the Furious 6 villain, Owen Shaw (Luke Evans). Oh, yes and she’d be Magdalene Shaw’s daughter (continues after video):

Johnson wrote of Shaw: “Hattie loves the following/ Longs walks on the beach. Being a bad ass MI6 Operative. Drinking tequila with Hobbs. And not in that order. Hattie also happens to be the sister of Deckard Shaw, who’s played by @jasonstatham. It tortures him that his sister Hattie is kickin’ it with Hobbs. His pain makes me very happy. But what makes me happier is welcoming this crazy talented actress and cool chick to our movie. Havin’ a blast together. Building out the franchise step by step. #HattieShaw #MI6BadAss #TequilaDrinkerWithHobbs HOBBS & SHAW ”

We loved her in Fallout and, yes, Netflix’s The Crown, so we’re really excited for her in this.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
