Janeshia Adams-Ginyard’s character is Nomble in Marvel’s Black Panther; Wakanda Forever. Her character’s name means “beauty.” In the film, Adams-Ginyard is a member of the Dora Milaje; they are the women warriors of Wakanda. “It’s a continuation of my character from the first Black Panther,” said Adams-Ginyard. “I’m identified with the black facial tattoo placed vertically over the right eye and down the cheek.
“My name was introduced in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier,” said Adams-Ginyard.
“For the first one, I had no idea what to expect,” said Adams-Ginyard. She “Trained in bo staff 8 hours a day. And that made for an easy transition on camera with spears.” Okoye, played by Danai Gurira, leads the women warriors in the film. The Dora Milaje women warriors are in shape in the Black Panther’s comic and film. “But we upped the ante with running a mile every morning and then trained outside,” said Adams-Ginyard. “It was almost like a boot camp.”
Adams – Ginyard played Nomble in the first Black Panther and was also the stunt double for Danai Gurira. “I stunt Doubled for Danai Gurira again in Avengers End Game and Infinity War,” said Adams-Ginyard. “And then back to NOMBLE in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. I was also Teyonnah Paris’s stunt double in WandaVision.” She is no stranger to the Marvel Universe.
