Elizabeth Olsen Was “Very Patient” Says Kathryn Hahn During Her 40-Minute Pee Breaks on ‘WandaVision’ Set

Kathryn Hahn’s co-star on WandaVision, Elizabeth Olsen, is a real friend. The Emmy Award nominee, 49, spoke about their friendship and introduced Olsen, 33, at Variety’s Power of Women event on Wednesday in Los Angeles. She said Olsen is “truly an inspiration” to her.

“First of all, she was my intro to the Marvel family and she very generously walked me through blasts and wires and stunts and finding truth on an X on a green screen. I was used to talking to other people,” Hahn said, before joking, “She was so patient with all of my questions: Who was Ultron? What is that glove with all the gems on it?”

She proceeded: “But she was very patient with me as it took me like a solid 40 minutes to 10-one which… is to urinate in the movie business. I have a lot of costume on and a very small bladder.”

Hahn made her Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) debut in Disney+’s WandaVision last year. She played the powerful and manipulative witch Agatha Harkness, who was Wanda Maximoff’s enemy. When filming for the show stopped in March 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the actors still looked out for each other.

“In the heart of lockdown, she brought worms from her garden over to us to compost,” she recalled. “And my husband, for some reason, it was really important for him to make sure that she knew that they’re thriving. So Lizzie, just know that they’re alive and well.”

“And did I hand her a loaf of bread in return that was clearly store-bought? Yes. She graciously accepted. And did she and her husband write and record a song for me as my wrap gift for WandaVision? Yes. And is it as perfectly strange and hilarious and singular as I ever dreamed of it being? Absolutely,” Hahn added.

When asked last April if she would play Agatha in another movie in the series, Hahn told PEOPLE, “Of course I would! I’d be happy to. Yes, without a doubt.”

Even though she said she has “no idea” if the chance will come up and that Marvel “runs a really tight ship,” a dark comedy spinoff of Agatha was reportedly in the works at Disney+ as of October 2022.
