Words matter. These are the best Elodie Yung Quotes, and they’re great for sharing with your friends.
A first love is something that lasts forever in your heart. It’s something that marks you.
It’s been great to travel because I really enjoyed being ‘Elektra’, so it’s not a problem talking about it.
Elektra isn’t a villain and isn’t a good girl, but as Frank Miller said, she is one of the villains with a weak streak in them, and that’s a failure that I tried to explore.
That’s the Elektra I tried to portray: one that’s always in the grey. She is a tortured soul.
For Elektra, I just wanted to be very clear. She’s traveled the world. She didn’t go to boarding school, but that’s the type of girl that she’d be. So, I just wanted to make sure that I could bring that to her, which goes through the language.
I really think I tried to capture the essence of the comics: what I thought would be the essence of Elektra. And then, as any character that I play, I really tried to dig inside me and try to reach real emotions and transpose that in her world, in who she is.
I learned about the psychology behind Elektra and that excited me. And then I read the ‘Daredevil’ comics, especially when they met because I wanted to get an understanding of the relationship between Elektra and Matthew.
The Asian culture has to be a part of what we see on TV and in movies.
For me, being comfortable is the best way to express my personality. Some days I like to be chill and wear my Stan Smiths with a cool little jacket, a blouse, and some lipstick for night, and that’s it.
I didn’t want to make a caricature version of Elektra.
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.
I think acting is a work of imagination.
I’m lucky to play Elektra. So far, it’s the most exciting part I’ve ever had to play. I’ve done the physicality a bit before, and I enjoy it.
I’ve done some movies before when you have months, or three weeks at least, to train and to learn choreography.
I always work with a coach. That’s just a personal thing that I like to do. During interviews, you’ll hear more of my accent, and I’ll stress the wrong words.
Elektra met Matt, and she fell in love with him. And I think he brought some good out of her at some point in her life, and maybe she wants to figure out, by coming back to him, who she really is. She comes back because she misses him, and she’s alone, and the only person she’s ever loved is Matt.
I had no idea who Elektra was. When the producers asked me before I booked the job, I had to tell them. It was a great surprise when I actually got the job.
Having my own show – it’s not something that I think of. It’s not.
I’ve experienced all the food and restaurants in New Orleans. I’ve been doing a bit of touristing when I have the day off, just walking in the French Quarter. To me, it’s very, very surprising how people are so friendly. But no, it’s very different from Paris.
Marvel’s very secretive, and I’m not hiding anything, I’m not lying; it’s just the way they are.
No, I’m not a student of Snake Eyes, but we trained in the same dojo.
Personally, I’ve always had to face casting directors or producers saying, ‘You’re right for the part, but nahh, you’re not quite what we’re looking for.’
I don’t carry sai blades for the sake of it in my personal life. I had to learn how to manipulate the sais. It was very tricky, because it’s a weird shape. It’s like a big fork. There’s a lot of ways that you can use them, but it’s not like a sword.
It’s not often that I’m being called femme fatale.
When I was auditioning, I didn’t know it was ‘Daredevil.’ Everything was secret. They’re secret agents. They wouldn’t give you any clues. I was a big fan of the show, and I think it helped me, once I got the part, to really understand the world that they live in. It helped me during shooting.
