“At some point I needed to do some homework,” Yung tells Marvel. “And I didn’t know her before, I wasn’t familiar with Daredevil, although I was watching the show long before I auditioned, so that was really the only thing I knew about this world. I found ELEKTRA: ASSASSIN and bought that and it was very inspiring, I thought, for this character. I was like, ‘Whoa, what am I stepping into?’ It’s insane. After I read the first volume of ELEKTRA: ASSASSIN, I was like, ‘What is it about, really?’ I read the rest and then I had an idea of the essence of the character. Then I looked at DAREDEVIL #168, where [Elektra and Daredevil] meet. I started there in the books, in the comics.”

“I really think I tried to capture the essence of the comics,” she explains. “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. That’s what I tried to do. The writers described her in one of our first meetings as a sociopath, so I had to look into what is a sociopath.”

“Marvel’s Daredevil” is a live action series that follows the journey of attorney Matt Murdock, who in a tragic accident was blinded as a boy but imbued with extraordinary senses. Murdock sets up practice in his old neighborhood of Hell’s Kitchen, New York where he now fights against injustice as a respected lawyer by day and masked vigilante at night.

Season 2 of Daredevil premieres March 18th on Netflix.
