Elodie Yung hopes to explore Elektra’s story further

Elodie Yung hopes to explore Elektra’s story further

Elodie Yung says she would love to dig deep into her character, Elektra Natchios, in the upcoming seasons of “The Defenders”.

The 36-year-old actor says she believes that Elektra needs to be analysed more and hopes that the character collides with Daredevil soon, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“I really like Elektra. It just feels unfinished. She’s done all of that, and now what? Where is she? And he’s alive. It would be interesting to explore (her relationship with Daredevil) again, especially after what just happened. But we have to see what Marvel will do with her. I have no clue,” Yung says.

The Defenders: Elodie Yung on Elektra’s shocking comeback

The Defenders: Elodie Yung on Elektra’s shocking comeback

The Hand has been after the Black Sky ever since Marvel and Netflix launched their partnership with Daredevil, and the ancient organization finally got their wish in the form of Elektra Natchios (Elodie Yung). But it’s as the old saying goes: Be careful what you wish for.

Over the course of Marvel’s The Defenders, Elektra evolves from a singularly focused killing machine into an even deadlier version of the assassin who fell in love with Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox), the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen. In the sixth episode of the event series, Elektra makes her independence known through two brutal acts: first killing Stick (Scott Glenn), the man who raised her like a daughter for much of her life, and later killing Alexandra (Sigourney Weaver), the woman who raised her from the dead. From there, Elektra wields her role as the prophesied leader of the Hand in unexpected ways, pursuing the secrets to immortality as a means of staying alive forever with her precious “Matthew.” Continue reading The Defenders: Elodie Yung on Elektra’s shocking comeback

How Elodie Yung Built Her Own Version of Comics’ Most Famous Femme Fatale

How Elodie Yung Built Her Own Version of Comics’ Most Famous Femme Fatale

It’s impossible to talk about Daredevil for very long without bringing up Frank Miller, the writer and artist whose tenure on Daredevil comics with Klaus Janson in the ’70s and ’80s essentially changed the comic-book game, turning a straightforward superhero comic into a stylish, rain-slick crime epic. And it’s impossible to talk about Frank Miller’s Daredevilwithout bringing up the character he created in the first Daredevil story he had total control over: Elektra Natchios, Daredevil’s former lover-turned-deadly assassin who would complicate his life in any number of dangerous ways.

To get a little insight as to how Daredevil would reinvent one of the most iconic women in comics, we reached out to Élodie Yung herself to talk about how she went about building this version of Elektra, the reception by comics fans, and whether or not Charlie Cox is any good at fighting.

GQ: What was it like auditioning for and getting to know a character with such a deep history?

The audition process was quite [intense]. It was very much about the work, the acting, and I really enjoyed that. It was a blind audition. I didn’t know much about the character or the plot so I was very free in the audition, because I could just explore different sides of the text, and they’d throw ideas at me and say “No, maybe go more like this, or more like that,” so I could just build this character progressively.

Then when I knew … I was watching the show, so I knew Daredevil, but I had no clue who Elektra was, so it was a very good surprise for me to get a part so interesting to play. So in-depth, so intense, so complex.

__Yes, you definitely get the chance to build your own version of Elektra on this show. What was that like? __
Thing I didn’t want to do was—well, she can be an archetype. She’s quite strong and has very defined traits in the comics, and you can easily go for the caricature of it. And I didn’t want that. I wanted to make her human. I wanted to make her real. So that’s why it is our own version, it’s my version, but what was important to me was to make her exist … [be more than] the dark girl, or the bloody one. You can easily fall into these traps. The show is about relationships between people; it’s about having characters that are real people, with blood and flesh and feelings.

What do you think is the most important aspect of your version of Elektra?
She is someone who has some violence in her—that’s [part of] her nature, almost, and [also] what she’s been through. It’s a mix of what she is at the origin, and who she became because what she’s gone through in her life. So having a mix between this violence and this almost redemption she’s looking for, the good. Not that she’s conscious of it when she meets Matt, but he has an impact on her and she is looking for goodness. She loves the darkness in him, that’s what she says. But she also says, “You have this light in you, and you can see it in me, Matthew, and you’re probably the only person who can see it.”

She’s almost her own worst enemy in a way, and the complexity is very interesting for me to play.

She’s also a fighter, so you get to express that character in a very physical way.
Yeah, exactly! It was very fun, and as you say—[the story is told] through the drama, with the other actors, but the beauty of the show is that the action is also here to tell a story. I would ask to tweak stuff during the action, because I thought Elektra would more likely express herself with a slap, for example. I wanted to keep the characteristics of my character even during the fights, and express the violence as she would do it, not like somebody else would.

Because sometimes action can be too, Okay, this is the moment, this is the action. Explosion, blood, punch, kick—and that’s not really interesting. In the show we really try to keep the characters alive through the action. In Daredevil, you can really see the conflict we have—the fine line he tries not to cross when he punches people; he fights with this. That’s his problem throughout this season: What are my limits?
