We were joined on the Popternative show by Kaylee Hottle who returns as Jia in Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire, out now in theaters. A follow-up to 2021’s film Godzilla vs. Kong, Godzilla x Kong finds Godzilla and Kong facing a threat hidden deep in the planet, challenging their very existence and the human race.

The cast also includes Rebecca Hall (Godzilla vs. Kong, The Night House), Brian Tyree Henry (Godzilla vs. Kong, Bullet Train), Dan Stevens (Gaslit, Legion), Alex Ferns (The Batman, Chernobyl), and Fala Chen (Irma Vep, Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings).

“Being back, it was very nice to develop an even stronger part of Jia, so that was great for the second go around,” Kaylee says on getting to play Jia again. “I was nervous, but I was so excited to meet the cast and the director again, it kind of felt like old times again, they’re so nice and friendly. Being back felt great. Three months went by very fast,” she adds.
