The first trailer for ‘Wandavision’ premiered last night during the Emmys, but who does Debra Jo Rupp play in the upcoming Disney Plus series?
Just when we were thinking that 2020 couldn’t get any stranger, Marvel drops the first trailer for ‘Wandavision’, their upcoming television series on Disney Plus.
In a weird but intriguing domestic sitcom format, we see the Scarlet Witch and Vision living out a rather peaceful, if not slightly fantastical, life in rural America.
However, one particular character in the trailer has caught the eyes of many fans, the woman sat at the dinner table played by Debra Jo Rupp.
Who is Debra Jo Rupp?
Debra Jo Rupp is a famous American actress from Glendale, California who is best known for her roles in That 70’s Show as Kitty Forman and in Friends as Alice Knight-Buffay.
Rupp has featured in countless television shows, including The Ranch (2017-20) as Janice Phillips, Better with You (2010-11) as Vicky Putney, As the World Turns (2008) as Edna Winklemeyer and Teacher’s Pet as Miss Helperman.
The 69-year-old has also featured in episodes of Grey’s Anatomy, NCIS: Los Angeles, Elementary, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Robot Chicken, The Tracy Morgan Show and Seinfeld.
Rupp has also featured in more than 26 feature films, including Big (1988), Death Becomes Her (1992), Clockwatchers (1997), Garfield (2004), Air Buddies (2006), She’s Out of My League (2010) and She Wants Me (2012).
Debra Jo Rupp in Wandavision…
- Debra Jo Rupp will play ‘Mrs Heart’ in the upcoming Marvel television series Wandavision.
Whilst the character is not named in either the trailer or on Rupp’s Wikipedia page, the subtitles reveal that the pair sat around the dinner table with Wanda and Vision are called Mr and Mrs Heart.
Whilst unconfirmed, the most likely scenario would be that the Heart’s are Wanda and Vision’s new neighbours. However, not much more information on the characters can be discerned from the reveal trailer.
Interestingly, one fan theory from ‘Wico90’ on Reddit states that the couple could be “Wanda’s subconscious trying to get her to question things (if she didn’t create the world).” Another user called ‘Seabro310’ later added to the theory that “perhaps [the Hearts are] modelled after her parents. Debra Jo Rupp could easily play Olsen’s Mum.”
Hopefully, we get some more information about the character or at least another trailer featuring Mrs Heart within the next few weeks.
