Cardi B's Fast & Furious co-star, Vin Diesel, confirms that her character, Leysa, will be coming back and more will be revealed about her character in Fast & Furious 10. With the Fast & Furious 9 release right around the corner (June 25, 2021), it's exciting to see who her character will be and how the Fast & Furious franchise will develop her character for Fast & Furious 10.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Vin Diesel spoke highly of Cardi B, saying, "We are very much excited to evolve her character and to expand it to the finale, she made it just in time. She came in Fast 9 just in time." Director Justin Lin also had some nice things to say about her, "She showed up, and within a minute, she's part of the family, right? And I love how when I got together with her, her and Vin were talking about the character because she's actually really embedded into the overall universe. She's been around for a long time and this is just the first time we are seeing her, so I'm really excited to explore that character of her."
The franchise released a short interview with Cardi B about the film (you can watch it here), where they ask her about her character. Cardi B says, "I like the fact that I'm representing such a powerful, strong woman." We do, too.
On top of her debut in the film franchise this weekend, Cardi B has been nominated for 5 awards for the 2021 BET awards: Viewer's Choice, Video of the Year (nominated twice), Collaboration, and Female Hip-Hop Artist. This is the year of Cardi B and we can't wait to see what else she has in store for 2021.
