‘The Defenders’: Elodie Yung Explains Elektra’s Role On The Series

'The Defenders' star Elodie Yung explains Elektra's role on the upcoming Marvel & Netflix series and her relationship with Alexandra.


When viewers last saw Elodie Yung as Elektra, the highly skilled assassin had been resurrected by The Hand at the end of Daredevil‘s second season. Destined to become a weapon of The Hand known as The Black Sky, Elodie Yung explained how Elektra will be an entirely different character when she returns in The Defenders during an interview with CinemaBlend.

Yung explained Elektra’s role in the series and discussed her relationship with the main adversary of the show named Alexandra:

“It was a great idea. I think they got really inspired by the comics. Elektra dies and comes back in a new outfit, and she’s changed. It was a really cool and interesting thing to have Elektra again, just being a completely new character. Almost, because she doesn’t remember anything. And so exploring kind of a new character was exciting for me. So this is where we start. And then Alexandra takes over this new Elektra and forges her the way she wants her to be, if that makes sense. So that’s the start.”
