In less than two weeks, Wonder Woman will finally arrive in theaters and audiences are eager to see the DC Comics heroine’s first standalone film. Along her journey, Wonder Woman will encounter a number of allies, including Steve Trevor and his assistant Etta Candy. In an interview with Entertainment Hotline, actress Lucy Davis shared details on the nature of Etta’s relationship with Steve and the important role she plays in their mission to bring an end to the war.
Davis discussed how Etta and Steve will not have a typical working relationship for the early 1900s.
“One of the great things that Etta gets to work with Steve Trevor is because Steve is not your typical man, in that he does entrust her with things that in 1918 probably wouldn’t have been entrusted to a secretary of somebody who is quite important. As you see in the movie, she has been entrusted with the mission that they are secretly on.”
Davis discussed how Etta will also earn the trust of Sir Patrick Morgan, played by David Thewlis.
“Eventually, further down the line, Sir Patrick entrusts her. That’s quite good going, actually. So I think that [Trevor] needs her just as much as she needs that because now she’s been given responsibility that she wouldn’t have normally be given before, and equally he has somebody who could probably fly under the radar a bit. So he can trust the person who no one’s really looking at. So I quite like that about her.”
