For all the Fast & Furious fans, the death of Letty’s character in the fourth installment (Fast & Furious in 2019) only made them sad! The film then led Dom (Vin Diesel) and Bryan (Paul Walker) to avenge his death to everyone’s delight. However, fans got a pleasant shock and surprise in the Fast Five post-credit scene.
It was nothing they could never have imagined when they saw Special Agent Fuentes (Eva Mendes), who was last seen in 2 Fast 2 Furious, handling a case for Agent. special Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson). Although this was a somewhat blurry photo, it was pretty clear who everyone was looking at – Letty.
With that, it turns out Letty wasn’t dead at all, and it was just as much of a surprise to the actress playing her as it was to everyone else.
In the weekly podcast with EW, Michelle Rodriguez explains that she had no idea they were bringing her character back and, with that, how Vin Diesel is a man of his word. “I had no idea. Originally when I said yes, I said yes except that they would test an alternate ending with me alive because I knew the audience didn’t want to. There was already a very low representation of women, period. And there are a lot of women who love racing cars all over the world. And to take that away from them with the one character that was really awesome, I didn’t think this was what people wanted, ”the actress said.
Michelle Rodriguez later adds how surprised she was when she learned of her character’s return. “And I only found out when I went to see Fast 5 and saw the tag end. I was in Paris. Vin Diesel didn’t even tell me. He said, ‘Don’t worry about that. I have that, ”she said.
