Ezra Miller has been making headlines in the past several months due to reports of allegations and disorderly conduct that happened in various places around the world. The actor's behavior ended up putting The Flash's release in jeopardy and, since then, they released an apology and promised that they will seek treatment for their mental health issues.
Now, one of their co-stars from The Flash, Saoirse-Monica Jackson, has expressed her support for the actor in a recent interview with Vanity Fair and praised them for their performance in playing the iconic DC hero.
"Honestly, it was so amazing for me to see that level of production and that level of creative freedom and scope. A lot of our scenes were improvised, and I think that it was a really supportive and creative environment," the actress said.
"And what a remarkable talent, and I think what a brilliant Flash. It’s just the perfect casting for The Flash. When the world sees that performance, they’ll be completely blown away. I had an amazing time on that job and I think that it definitely made me a better actor."
When asked about the character that she is playing in the film, Jackson remained mum on the details of her role although she described it as a "fun interesting character" and different from the other roles she played in the past.
"I’m so scared of Warner Bros. I’m just so delighted that I got the part that I’m so scared to even speak about it in case I get fired" she said. "So I can’t tell you anything at the moment, but I’m really delighted about playing her. She’s a really fun, interesting character and a very different character from things I’ve played in the past. I’ve worked with some amazing people and I just loved the experience."
So far, Warner Bros. is still committed to releasing The Flash in theaters next year despite the controversies surrounding its main actor. It is unknown yet how the studio will tackle its marketing campaign and whether Miller will be involved in the press tour. It is also unknown yet if the actor will remain in the role after the upcoming film.
