Nella giornata di ieri sono comparsi su Vimeo di video audizioni per la seconda stagione di Netflix’s Daredevil. Nei video, prontamente cancellati, erano presenti due donne impegnate nella lettura dello stesso copione per il ruolo (molto probabilmente) di Elektra Natchios.
Elektra è un assassina della Mano creata da Frank Miller su Daredevil #168 nel 1981 che ha avuto un passato amoroso con Matt Murdock.
Le attrici nelle audizioni hanno letto due scene. La prima era una specie di interrogatorio ad un malvivente, mentre nella seconda Elektra flirtava con Matt Mudock ai tempi del college.
Qui sotto una trascrizione in inglese del testo del video:
Elektra: Easy. No moving. No talking. Right now we play a game called, “This is not a conversation.” Sit on the bed.
Thug: Please, my pills, can I get them?
Elektra: The .38’s gone. So is the knife you stashed under the pillow. Anything else I should know about?
Thug: I’m getting on a plane just like you said. Tickets on the counter.
Elektra: I saw, window seat and everything.
Thug: I told you before, you and your partner, it was a long time ago but…
Elektra: (makes a threatening move with weapon)
Thug: I’m sorry. I’m doing everything you told me to do. I’m leaving behind my whole operation.
Elektra: And when you get to wherever you’re going on, I assume you set up shop doing the same sh*t you did here.
Elektra: Hurting innocent people all because you’re too lazy to get rich the hard way.
Thug: What the hell do you want from me?
Elektra: My partner was a good kid and became a hell of a grown up. But he had goodness in him, once upon a time. The way he tells it, he comes home one night and heard a blow dryer in the bathroom. Dinner’s on the table. He waits a second, but he’s starving – he’s eats alone. Assumes she’ll be out any minute – she’ll be mad, but she’ll understand. Always does. He’s a good son. He goes to find her, blow dryer still on and there she is – brains on the god damn mirror!
Thug: Your partner, that woman was his mother? And he doesn’t even know you’re here, does he?
Elektra: Sometimes it is better off not knowing.
Thug: I’m old man, I don’t have much time. I’ll give you everything.
Elektra: There is no version of this where you walk out that door.
Thug: Please, lady.
Elektra: Call me that again and I’ll cut your tongue out.
Thug: You promised you wouldn’t kill me.
Elektra: He said he wouldn’t kill you, but me, I never had goodness in me. (slow stabbing motion)
