In season 2 of the animated anthology series Love, Death + Robots, available since May 14 on Netflix, two French actresses participated in the new short films offered. Did you recognize the actresses?
Available from May 14 on Netflix, volume 2 of Love, Death + Robots features eight new animated short films. Among these episodes still dealing with love, death and robots, we find two French actresses, Elodie Yung and Zita Hanrot, who each took part in an episode.
French actress Elodie Yung participates in the third short film of this second volume of Love, Death + Robots. The actress already has a great international career since she played Elektra in the Marvel series of Netflix, Daredevil and Defenders, and we recently saw her in Gods of Egypt and Hitman & Bodyguard.
In “Intervention Group”, directed by Jennifer Yuh Nelson, Elodie Yung lends her voice to the character of Eve, the hero’s companion, Detective Briggs. The latter is in charge of fighting the scourge of overpopulation in a dystopian world. While Eve takes pleasure in the upper echelons, the cop is plagued by the consequences of his work and the ill-being of people living in the slums.
Animated by Blur Studio, this short is a real visual slap that does not fail to amaze by this universe inspired by Blade Runner. The story, signed Paolo Bacigalupi, ends up touching the heart and surprises with its violence and emotion.
For her part, Zita Hanrot took part in the short “Snow and the Desert”, whose animation is by Unit Image, a French company already at work on “Derrière la faille” in the first season of Love, Death + Robots .
In this new short, whose universe is reminiscent of Mad Max, Zita Hanrot plays Harild, a cyborg who prevents bounty hunters from attacking Snow, a man whose regenerative capacity has made him immortal. The two lonely beings and eager to find a companion for life will come closer and love each other.
The actress had to play the game of motion capture and dubbing to play this character in a studio provided for this purpose. A remarkable proposal on a screenplay by Neal Asher, “Snow and the Desert” was directed by Léon Bérelle, Dominique Boidin, Rémi Kozyra and Maxime Luère.
