Emily VanCamp and Chris Evans ‘Did’ Their ‘Best’ to Make a Romance Between Steve Rogers and Sharon Carter Work

In Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War, Chris Evans starred as Steve Rogers/Captain America and Emily VanCamp played Sharon Carter. The two characters were briefly love interests, but Marvel fans did not react well to the storyline.

VanCamp now appears as Sharon in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier on Disney+ while Evans is no longer part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In an interview with Variety about the Disney+ series, VanCamp shared that even though fans did not like Sharon and Steve together, she and Evans worked hard to make the on-screen relationship convincing.

Emily VanCamp thinks she and Chris Evans tried their ‘best’ during ‘Captain America: Civil War’

After a budding flirtation, Steve and Sharon kissed midway through Captain America: Civil War. However, after they kissed, Sharon is not seen again and the two did not pursue a relationship.

“I mean, look, you have to laugh. Some of these storylines play and some of them don’t. But, you know, I thought that was an amazing film. It’s just one of those things,” VanCamp told Variety about the backlash to the kiss.

While fans did not like Steve and Sharon’s brief relationship in Captain America: Civil War, VanCamp appreciates the effort she and Evans put into the movie.

“I mean, we certainly did our best,” she said.

Chris Evans and Emily VanCamp’s kissing scene helped start ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’

While fans did not like Sharon and Steve’s kiss in Captain America: Civil War, Sam Wilson/Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) stole the scene with their banter as they waited in a car.

According to VanCamp, Sam and Bucky’s chemistry while Steve and Sharon kissed is what helped start The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.

“I think one of the best things that came out of that scene, to be honest, with this amazing dynamic between Sam and Bucky,” she told Variety. “You really do get this glimpse into the Falcon and Winter Soldier buddy dynamic. You want to see more of that, and we get to see it, which is fantastic.”

What Emily VanCamp thinks of ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’

As much as VanCamp enjoyed working on Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War, she thinks TV shows like The Falcon and the Winter Soldier allow for more character development.

“It’s amazing to get to jump back in in this new medium, because with the movies, you’re trying to fit in so many characters into two hours, and with the streaming, six hour version of this [show], you get to tell the story with a little bit more depth,” VanCamp said.

She added, “With Sharon, it was always trying to fit her in and these movies are just too big, and it’s completely understandable. To get to see who she’s become over this long period of time, and independent of Captain America as we know him, is really interesting to me.”
