How WandaVision’s Kat Dennings Became Death in Audible’s Adaptation
Press Articles Projects The Sandman

Kat Dennings, who plays Darcy in the MCU, became the voice of Death in The Sandman’s Audible adaptation thanks to her friendship with Neil Gaiman.

Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe recognize Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewis, who made her debut in the Thor films and returned for the WandaVision series on Disney+. However, in the Audible adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman, she plays a very different beloved character, and she has a surprising story about how she came to the role.

In a video posted on Audible’s official Twitter, Dennings and Gaiman both shared their memories of striking up a friendship online following Dennings’ 2011 tweet about studying lines while listening to Gaiman read his book Coraline. “Oh man, the story of meeting Neil Gaiman is so magical,” said Dennings. “And I think I just tweeted out to him about listening to him talk and memorizing lines and eating sushi, something like that. And he answered! And it was like, what? What what what?”

Dennings went on to say that the exchange sparked “what is now a very long, amazing friendship,” which Gaiman confirmed, taking up the story from his own perspective. “We appeared to become friends,” he said, “in that, if I was in Los Angeles, I would always have dinner with — there would be three or four people I would always have dinner with, and Kat was always one of my friends at that table.”

As for joining The Sandman Audible project, Dennings mused, “I think we’d always been looking for a way to work together, ever since. And this is it!”

“And for Death I just figured she’d be great,” said Gaiman. “It was one of those things where I sent her an email saying, ‘Do you want to do this?’ …Got back lots of exclamation marks and happy faces and hearts.”

Dennings added, “Did not ask for any more details: The answer is yes, obviously.”

The character of Death of the Endless, older sister of Dream, will soon be appearing in live action in Netflix’s adaptation of The Sandman comics, portrayed by Kirby Howell-Baptiste. Denning’s voice as Death can be heard in The Sandman: Act II, directed by Dirk Maggs, now available on Audible with subscriber access here. She has also expressed her willingness to reprise the role of Darcy for the MCU, either in a WandaVision spinoff or another kind of project.

IS THAT A GENUINE SMILE COMING OUT OF MY FACE?! IT IS THE SMILE OF SOMEONE WHO FINALLY HOODWINKED HER FAVORITE BEVERAGE INTO SPONSORING HER…IT’S SPINDRIFT SPARKLING WATER, BABY. Never in my life have I approached a brand ASKING to partner with them out of sheer adoration. As a passionate (yet not remotely professional) gardener, I’ve become obsessed with only allowing REAL FRUIT (not “natural flavor” – actual fruit) into my consumables. Once I realized that everything I was drinking was “flavored”, I went on the hunt. I discovered @drinkspindrift which is the FIRST sparkling water made with 100% ONLY REAL SQUEEZED FRUIT and I became an absolute psycho, slowly converting my friends and family to the Drifter lifestyle. I may be part Spindrift at this point, as it is actually the only water I drink. Anyway. More to come. #realfruittastesbetter#spindriftpartner
