Lauren Ridloff plays Makkari in Marvel’s “Eternals.”
The Deaf actress got her start in 2018’s Broadway revival of “Children Of A Lesser God.”
She later appeared on “The Walking Dead.”
The former Deaf education advocate had a lot of training to do.
Fortunately, she was already a runner to match Makkari’s superspeed.
Trainer David Higgins also added straight training and Pilates into her routine.
Ridloff, who was previously a vegan, now eats meat occasionally.
One of her favorite snacks is popcorn sprinkled with nutritional yeast.
Otherwise, cottage cheese and lots of vegetables make it into her daily menu.
