Erin Kellyman never hid the fact she was queer, as evidenced by the abundance of pics with her girlfriend Jordana O'Coy posted to their social media. But some fans only recently realized the talented young actor who portrays Karli Morganthau in Marvel's Falcon and the Winter Soldier series now appearing on Disney+ was out, and they provided a hilarious and affirming rainbow of responses to their discovery.
Kellyman, who previously starred in Solo: A Star Wars Story, plays Karli Morgenthau, a leader of the Flag Smashers group who are pushing for what they see as a more equitable world, by any means necessary.. The events take place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe six months after the conclusion of events in the 2019 film Avengers: Endgame. The character of Morganthau underwent a gender swap for the series, changing from Karl to Karli. Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan reprise their roles of Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes, and the cast also includes Don Cheadle, Wyatt Russell, and others.
"It's a beautiful, very moving kiss," Sleiman said of the superhero liplock last year. "Everyone cried on set."
The mixed-race Kellyman has never hidden the fact she is gay. She is currently dating Jordana O'Coy, and their social media profiles show the two together frequently. In one post, the pair can be seen celebrating at a Pride in 2019.
