Florence Pugh and Hailee Steinfeld’s roles as Yelena Belova and Kate Bishop on Disney Plus’ “Hawkeye” had Marvel fans gagged with delight. Their chemistry in the miniseries was so palpable that fans were shipping them together. They even have a fandom page dedicated to their hypothetical love called Bishova, a mashup of their names. If that isn’t indicative of great onscreen rapport, we don’t know what is.
Apparently, the two actors related just as well offscreen, too. Pugh and Steinfeld have nurtured a blossoming friendship since their meeting. In an interview with Cosmopolitan, Steinfeld revealed that she knew right off the bat they’d hit it off. “I think we just had similar energy . . . we really did have a wonderful time together.”
Steinfeld also spoke to Entertainment Tonight when the show aired in 2021 about the project and how seamlessly their characters meshed with one another due to the deaths of their onscreen family members. She complimented Pugh’s acting skills, saying, “I was so excited and so incredibly impressed by her coming in and onto the set and just creating this space for the two of us to just sort of run.” The co-stars evidently let their good energies bounce off each other while working. “We’re playing these two incredibly strong-willed young female characters who are capable of a lot, and it was just amazing to see us work through the writing and find the truth in all of it.”
