The french actress Elodie Yung has been cast as Elektra Natchios in Daredevil next season.
In an interview with Marvel.com, Jeph Loeb , the Executive Producer and Head of Marvel Television said: "After a worldwide search, we found in Elodie the perfect actress to embody both Elektra’s impressive and deadly physicality, as well as her psychological complexity."
"Paired with Charlie as Matt Murdock, the two will bring one of the most beloved and tumultuous comic book relationships to life with all the accompanying sparks and spectacular action sequences the show is known for."
Elodie Yung's Elektra has been described as a “mysterious woman from Matt Murdock’s past whose dangerous and exotic ways may be more than he can handle.”
Elodie Yung is not well-known actress and has been previously starring in G.I Joe: Retaliation alongside Dwayne Johnson and Bruce Willis.
Also, Marvel released a teaser image for Elektra in Daredevil Twitter account:
I'm also french and saw Elodie Yung in a couple of movies and I'm pretty confident. I think Marvel made an excellent choice and I'm pretty confident, she'll nail it ! In case some people are sceptical, I'm sure she will be an excellent Elektra for the show !
