But who was the actress behind the brilliant show? It was recently revealed that Carrie Coon has filled the shoes as Proxima Midnight. The casting news was shared by Infinity War directors Joe and Anthony Russo in an interview with British magazine Radio Times.

Coon too confirmed her association on Twitter. She said, "It's true! My voice and a dazzle of gifted animators have teamed up to play Proxima Midnight. To be fair my face is in there somewhere. #MoCapWhilePregnant."

The actress is best known for her role in FX's Fargo. She was nominated for an Emmy under the leading actress in a limited series or movie category for her role as Gloria Burgle Fargo's season 3.
