Patti LuPone has revealed new details about her character in Disney's upcoming Agatha: Coven of Chaos series.

"It's a coven of witches, and I play Lilia Calderu, who apparently is in the Marvel world. I researched her, she's hot, she's really hot, she's got a great body and hair," LuPone shared on The View this morning. Watch Patti LuPone's complete appearance on The View here.

LuPone went on to share new details about the secretive series, which follows Agatha Harkness, played by Kathryn Hahn, a fan-favorite character from WandaVision on Disney+.

"I didn't know there were witches, I didn't know anything about the Marvel world. There are witches in the Marvel world. So, we are a coven of witches and the witches are: Kathryn Hahn, Aubrey Plaza, and [a] Familiar - if anybody knows Heartstopper - is Joe Locke."

Lilia Calderu has yet to be featured in any of Disney's Marvel films or series, she is a "450-year-old Sicilian witch, whose power is divination, and whose trial is tarot."

LuPone went on to say that while they are still filming, the show will most likely premiere in 2024.
