Melburnian Elizabeth Debicki, whose film credits include "The Great Gatsby" and "Macbeth", would play Ayesha in "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2". It wasn't hard to notice her, as she was the golden high priestess who made the lives of the Guardians so miserable after Rocket stole valuable batteries, which the gang retrieved from Abilisk, an inter-dimensional monster. (The audience wouldn't pay attention to this hideous thing, as they should be hooked to Baby Groot's first dance steps.) Ayesha was a super powerful being, who had the ability to manipulate cosmic energy for a variety of effects. Expect Debicki to appear in the next "Guardians of the Sequel" sequel. If Marvel Studios should be planning to introduce more characters from the other parts of the galaxy, then Ayesha may give Rocket and Groot a galaxy-sized problem in their own movie.

Debicki was the right actress to play this superheroine, even if the sequel depicted her as a villain. The 26 year old, who was born in Paris, would be very tall. She's also a luminous beauty, a feature uncommon in other actresses. In case you're doing a head count, Debicki is the fourth Aussie actor to be cast in the Marvel Cinematic Universe; Hugo Weaving played the Red Skull ("Captain America: The First Avenger") while Guy Pearce was Aldrich Killian (in "Iron Man 3'). The latest trailer of "Thor: Ragnarok", which will be out in November 3, features Cate Blanchett playing supervillainness Hela. Kiwi filmmaker Taika Waititi will be making his Hollywood debut, and as the trailer suggests, this third (and possibly final) installment in the Thor trilogy is very different from the first two. It's something to look forward to.

There's no reason to worry about talent drain, as Australian actors have been lured to Hollywood these past decades. Mel Gibson may be considered the first to make a crossover, but it wasn't until the 1990s when it was really felt in the Australian film industry. It happened that Australian Cinema achieved a Golden Age, where films like "Muriel's Wedding" became acclaimed in foreign shores. In fairness to the likes of Toni Collette, these actors went back home (and do a film) after finding success in America. In Debicki's case, Baz Luhrmann liked her earlier works. He had her traveled to Los Angeles for auditions. The rest would be history. Debicki's upcoming projects include "God Particle", the third installment in the Cloverfield franchise. Locals fans would be looking out for the animated version of "Peter Rabbit", where Rose Byrne and Margot Robbie round up the stellar cast. And Steve McQueen is currently filming "Widows", his next project after "12 Years a Slave". Debicki joins Viola Davis, Colin Farrell, and Liam Neeson.

Don't be surprised if Hollywood falls in love with Debicki sooner than you think. She has all the physical attributes that will guarantee a longevity in showbiz. It has nothing to do with being white, yet she's still young in the business. The sky is the limit for her.
