The photos from the Hobbs and Shaw set continue with the first look at the Vanessa Kirby character, Hattie Shaw, in the anticipated August 2, 2019 release. Dwayne Johnson posted the photo in color, while Kirby shared a black and white version of the same pic. Johnson described the character as follows:
In our Fast & Furious spin-off, HOBBS & SHAW, I have a new friend.
Meet “Hattie Shaw” played by my homegirl, Vanessa Kirby.
Hattie loves the following/
Longs walks on the beach.
Being a bad ass MI6 Operative.
Drinking tequila with Hobbs.
And not in that order.
Hattie also happens to be the sister of Deckard Shaw, who’s played by Jason Statham.
It tortures him that his sister Hattie is kickin’ it with Hobbs.
His pain ? makes me very happy.
But what makes me happier is welcoming this crazy talented actress and cool chick to our movie.
Havin’ a blast together.
Building out the franchise step by step.
