Loki director Kate Herron has addressed the Enchantress theory regarding Sylvie.
Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino) was first introduced at the end of Episode 2, titled, “The Variant.” Upon the release of that episode as well as Episode 3, titled “Lamentis,” fans have speculated the identity of the character, with the two most-popular guesses being Lady Loki or Enchantress. In some cases, some have theorized that Sylvie is actually a combination of the two.
Kate Herron addressed the Lady Loki and Enchantress theories to Entertainment Tonight:
“I would say there’s more to be delved into. One thing I would say is, like, she’s different to the comics. Like, she’s a unique character, but obviously, there’s things that have been pulled from. I think for her character, she’s on the run and she’s called Sylvie and she’s dyed her hair. The blonde that we associate with Sylvie is played in that sense, but it makes sense for her character within our story. But I would say deeper than that, yeah, there’s more to be revealed about her character to come.”
She continued, confirming that Sylvie is indeed a female variant of Loki while expressing that she’s a different character from the Lady Loki we know from the comics:
“The main thing I would say is: Lady Loki in the comics is a very different character to our character, obviously. I love that character and I think she’s got a very different journey. But our Sylvie is a female Loki, in that sense — because in episode 1 and 2, they know it’s a Loki they’re tracking — but I think that’s part of the discussion. It’s almost like Loki — as in Tom Loki — he’s like, “Wait, how much of my life have you got? Who are you?” And I think that’s the real question is, who is she? So, we will discuss that as the show goes on. Why does she not like being called Loki? What’s her past? Where did she come from?”
Are you excited to see how Sylvie’s journey continues in Loki? Do you think theories regarding connections to Lady Loki and Enchantress will come into play? Sound off in the comments below.
