Sunday Services

Today’s subject is French actress, and Guardians of the Galaxy star Pom Klementieff.

Pom Klementieff (3 May 1986) is a French actress. She was trained at the Cours Florent drama school in Paris and has appeared in such films as Loup (2009), Sleepless Night (2011) and Hacker’s Game (2015). She plays the role of Mantis in the Marvel Cinematic Universe films Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017), Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and Avengers: Endgame (2019).

Pom Klementieff was born in Quebec City, Canada, to a Korean mother and French-Russian father, who was working there as a consul with the French government. Her parents chose the name “Pom” because it is similar in pronunciation to the Korean words for both “spring” and “tiger.”

Sadly, Pom’s early life was very difficult, emotionally.

Klementieff’s father died of cancer when she was 5, and her mother had schizophrenia and was unable to care for children, so Klementieff was raised by her paternal uncle and aunt. Her uncle, whom she described as “like [her] second father”, died on her 18th birthday, and her older brother committed suicide just seven years later, this time on her 25th birthday.

As you can see, Pom is very active, especially when fighting off bees at the Grand Canyon.

She also has a lovely set of Pom-Poms.

Pom is obviously a beautiful woman, and apparently a decent person. I’m sure her politics wouldn’t coincide with mine, but that’s okay; I can still stare at her from a distance.

The services have ended. You may now go in peace.

  1. Of all the characters in the Marvel movie universe, the way they portrayed Mantis really irritates me. I grew up on the Avengers comic books & Mantis was a total bad ass. She was 1/2 Asian, raised by monks, taught how to fight (can’t remember which version, but she was a female Bruce Lee-type), was a prostitute, hooked up with the Swordsman, joined the Avengers, tried to steal the Vision from Scarlet Witch & ended up being the Celestial Madonna. “This one” (that’s how she used to refer to herself) was a bit boring.


  2. TXNick – She could be offered another role – in my bedroom – if she plays her cards right.

    MelP – I never saw the second GotG, but I’ll take an expert’s word on it. 🙂
