The French-Cambodian actress stars as Elektra in Netflix’s The Defenders. Making headlines as the new badass woman, Elodie also surprised her 179k of Instagram followers by cutting her hair short. And now she’s leaning towards edgy style. How so?
“It was a bit crazy, but sometimes it’s good to follow your impulse!” Her current style embodies that je ne sais quoi allure.
“I now feel drawn to more edgy pieces, I don’t want to look too pretty anymore—I want to take more risks!”
She moved to New York once she got accepted as Elektra, scoring a temporary loft in East Williamsburg. The 36-year-old actress earned her black belt after studying karate through her late teens. At age 29, she felt a bit unsettled when she first tasted the acting world. In 2011, Elodie played the heroine Lisbeth Salander’s girlfriend in David Finer’s 2011 film The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
