Paul Rudd sings high praises for Kathryn Hahn’s performance as Agatha Harkness in Marvel’s WandaVision, saying that she nailed the crazy witch cackle.
Paul Rudd has nothing but high praise for Kathryn Hahn’s performance in WandaVision. The MCU show was a major hit for Disney+ when it hit television screens earlier this year. Its unique sitcom format mesmerized audiences as viewers attempted to unravel its mystery from episode to episode. The program is expected to be an awards juggernaut this year, with Disney already campaigning for Emmy nominations.
One of WandaVision‘s biggest standouts was inarguably Kathryn Hahn as Agnes. Her performance has been lauded for the colorful way she portrayed the scheming witch, Agatha Harkness, in the first-ever on-screen iteration of the character. Agatha spawned memes, plenty of theories, inspired a drag queen show, and even birthed a catchy theme song with Agatha All Along. Her performance was so memorable that many people cannot stop talking about it.

Marvel’s own Paul Rudd (Ant-Man) is one of those people, as he’s been gushing over Hahn as well. The two not only star in the Marvel Universe together but have worked with each other a total of six times. In an article for Vanity Fair profiling Hahn’s film career, Rudd was asked about what he thought of the actress in WandaVision. According to him, he didn’t miss a single episode and had nothing but kind things to say:
How good she was. I mean, my God, who else could do what she did? She does that crazy witch cackle, and you buy it. You know how hard it is to do a crazy witch cackle?
When WandaVision was airing, it was the most streamed show in the world. With both its commercial and critical success, the series has already cemented Marvel Studios’ place in the television landscape. Hahn’s performance elevated an already great show and the praise she has been receiving proves that. Rudd was right when he said that she nailed that crazy witch cackle, which is not an easy thing to do.
Hahn’s next big project will be for Knives Out 2, which is currently wrangling a giant cast of actors. Even though Hahn has been professionally acting since she was 24, WandaVision seems to be the breakout role that has finally catapulted her to the mainstream. As for when Agatha will return, Marvel has not confirmed anything. Hahn has already stated that she would love to come back to the role, so it’s likely that she’ll eventually return. Perhaps that time will come in Doctor Strange: The Multiverse of Madness. WandaVision star, Elizabeth Olsen, is already confirmed to co-lead the movie alongside Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange. If Agatha does return, it would not be surprising if it was for this film.
