Michael B. Jordan and Tessa Thompson went to couples therapy as Creed characters

In the boxing drama, Jordan plays retired champ Adonis 'Donnie' Creed, who struggles to open up to his wife Bianca played by Thompson, about his traumatic childhood. To prepare for the third instalment, the actors went to couples therapy as Donnie and Bianca although the lines started to blur between the professional and the personal. Thompson told Refinery29, "We did couples therapy Yes, in character, but it ended up being like - the line sometimes between character and us gets blurred because we bring so much of what we're exploring personally to the characters in general."
