Brie Larson’s rise from struggling actress to Oscar award-winning actress hasn’t been an easy one.

She knew she wanted to be an actress at a young age. When she wasn’t being homeschooled, she was writing and directing her own movies with a cast consisting of her cousins. At six years old, she auditioned and was admitted into a training program at the American Conservatory Theater making her the youngest student ever to be admitted.

Once her parents divorced a year later, her mother moved them to Los Angeles so Brie could pursue her acting dreams. Like most starting actresses, she was broke. Her family lived in a small one-bedroom apartment with a Murphy bed, a bed that came out of the wall, and only three articles of clothing per person.

Brie booked her first role on an episode of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in a parody commercial for Barbie. Brie’s character was named “Malibu Mudslide Barbie.” After she booked guest roles on several tv shows from Touched by an Angel to Popular.

Her first major role that aired on television was in a sitcom called Raising Dad with Bob Saget. Sadly, it only aired for one season. It’s a good thing we have Full House reruns to fill the void. She booked two other pilots. One never made it to air while the other replaced Brie and the rest of the cast before it was on television.

Side note: did anyone else know Brie was in Sleepover with Alexa PenaVega?! We spent a large portion of our teens watching that movie and we had no idea. It’s time to go back and watch it. Brie was also in another iconic film, 13 Going on 30.

While she was being booked for a few roles on and off, she began getting into music, thus Brie Larson the pop star was born. When she was sixteen, she released her debut album. She was an opener on Jessie McCartney’s Beautiful tour and his mall tour. Sadly, the album was not considered a success.

Struggling Times

After Larson’s movie Hoot received poor reviews, she lost out on the lead roles in Thirteen and Juno. In her late teens/early twenties, she struggled to get roles and thought about giving up acting for something more stable. After all, she had been in the entertainment business for over a decade and she still didn’t have financial stability.

In an interview with People Larson said, “I’ve been broke a dozen times. When you look at it, it kind of makes sense, or my IMDb maybe looks consistent, but there’s large gaps of time with three auditions a day – still.”

In order to support herself, she worked at a club as a DJ.

years later, her career started to turn around. She played Kate Gregson in United States of Tara. She was in Scott Pilgrim vs the World, 21 Jump Street, Community, The Spectacular Now, The Gambler, and Trainwreck starring alongside Amy Schumer.

In 2015, she starred in the hit movie Room. When the film was getting Oscar buzz, Brie still didn’t feel like she had made it.

“Even before Room came out, I was stressing about money,” she added in the same People interview. Luckily her performance in Room earned her a Golden Globe and an Oscar.

Captain Marvel

It wasn’t until she booked Carol Danvers, Captain Marvel that she finally felt secure. Once a Marvel character gets their own origin story film, two more films are bound to follow.

There’s also a one hundred percent chance of their character joining the Avengers resulting in several more films. Oh, and there’s cameo potential to be in other fellow Avengers’ franchises. Essentially, if you are lucky enough to enter the Marvel cinematic universe, you’ll be there for at least a decade. Book one Marvel movie and in reality, you’ll have booked ten.

Carol Danvers is the strongest Avenger. Now that Steve Rogers, Black Widow, and Iron Man are gone (RIP), the Avengers will need a new leader. Who is going to lead them? Rocket? No way. He’d make the team go all over the galaxy to get random body parts. Even if they still have the Time Infinity stone, the Avengers don’t have time for that nonsense.

Captain Marvel is the best candidate for the job. She’s the strongest, bravest, smartest, and she has experience saving the world not only on Earth, but in space too. We can’t wait for her to lead the team in the next phase of Marvel. We’ve honestly lost track of what phase of Marvel we are on. Phase 10? Phase 55? Doesn’t matter, we want Brie Larson and Captain Marvel in all of them.
