Coco was a former resident of the shelter in 2021 and was adopted specifically for the role. Originally, Coco’s role in the film was small. However, “her popularity among test audiences encouraged director Dan Trachtenberg to include more of Coco in the film.”

On the press tour for the film, Amber Midthunder who plays Naru described Coco “as a little bit of a hot mess — but in a sweet way.” Despite requiring a little extra patience and understanding, Coco’s personality won the hearts of not only the cast and crew, but audiences of the film.

Coco’s and the rest of the cast’s performance have led to the film gaining critical acclaim. Many are calling it “the best Predator movie in years.”

Prey is currently streaming on Hulu.
