About Tessa Thompson

Tessa Thompson is social media’s superhero. The actress popular for her action roles in Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers: Endgame and the new Men In Black: International is helping to shift public perception of what a hero looks like. Taking to Twitter to inform audiences of her own bisexual truth, Tessa’s breath-of-fresh-air transparency was quickly lauded by fans and critics, with Time claiming "with just one tweet, she made Marvel’s first onscreen queer superhero real." Tessa uses her platforms as a voice for female and queer empowerment and representation, putting her massive followings of 2M+ on Instagram and 565K+ on Twitter to good use.
