Julia Louis-Dreyfus Talks About Valentina Allegra
The actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus made some interesting comments about her character in Marvel’s The Falcon and the Winter Soldier: The Art of the Series book. She reflected on the nature and significance of the character and said:
“There’s a lot of mystery in terms of her background, and whether she’s a good guy or a bad guy remains to be seen… she’s sort of living in a gray zone,” “And I like the idea of a female mastermind. I think it’s about time, by the way, not to get too political on anybody. But I’m all in favor of it. And I’m delighted to be able to do it myself.”
Praising Valentina Allegra, she continued: “And the other thing that’s really fun is sometimes you think maybe she said too much, and then maybe it seems as if what she said was intentional, and she wanted you to think she said too much, but she didn’t. It’s all a plan. She’s about three steps ahead of everyone, and that’s gobs of fun to play.”
Earlier, Falcon and Winter Soldier executive producer Nate Moore too commented on Valentina and had remarked to Marvel.com: “Whenever we talked about Valentina, even in the writer’s room, she was sort of a more acerbic, funnier, but darker Nick Fury,” “Someone who knows her secrets, who’s not afraid to operate in the moral gray area, but maybe who isn’t as inherently altruistic.”
Valentina sure is quite a unique and special character and the enthusiasm showed by Julia Louis-Dreyfus and executive producer Nate Moore bears out this fact. What do you think of the character? Let us know your opinion in the comments section below.
