The One Piece live-action adaption series, based on Eiichiro Oda’s original manga, has received good and thrilling reviews from both critics and fans, thanks in part to its outstanding cast. The series has made every effort to stay true to the original script and be as grounded as possible, and even the cast has been chosen to bring the most similarities between the characters. Inaki Godoy stars as Luffy, Mackenyu as Zoro, Emily Rudd as Nami, Jacob Romero as Usopp, and Taz Skylar as Sanji in the series.
The cast especially Emily Rudd who plays the character of Nami has been greatly appreciated by fans and has amassed a lot of fame since the premiere of the series. In an interesting interview with Netflix, Rudd exposed her secret about her screen name and later regretted it.
Emily Rudd’s Spills Secret About Her First Screen Name
Rudd is a 30-year-old actress who largely played supporting roles in films and television until 2021 when she played Cindy Berman in Netflix’s Fear Street. In 2023, she continued her career as Nami in the One Piece adaption. Rudd’s performance in the live-action adaptation was loved by fans and critics a lot. As the series focuses on the Arlong Park arc which is an emotional aspect of Nami’s life, Rudd’s portrayal of the character was spot on, and not only she was approved by the fans, but the creator of the series Oda san also loved her job in bringing the character of Nami to life.
During an interview with Netflix, she was asked the question – “Emily you’re @EmilysTeaParty, now spill the tea, First Screen Name.” To which she replied:
“Oh God! It was my name backward, which I guess I pronounced YLime2Funny and I regret being honest about that.”
Rudd immediately regretted about answering the question and spilling the beans on her first screen name.
