The 26-year-old actress will be playing the lead role in the television series Echo and people are excited to see her charm in the series. Alaqua Fox says her character is a bad*ss and has an authentic representation. While talking about her character, the Hawkeye actress said,

“The authentic representation, first and foremost, is very awesome. I grew up seeing white superheroes who were mostly men. Now that we have this authentic representation for people of color, it’s so nice to see that change in representation. I think that’ll be a nice surprise for the fans, to see that authentic representation. And I have a prosthetic leg, which is probably one of the coolest things in the show, as well.”

With her performance in Hawkeye, Fox has already wowed fans. When asked how she felt about being cast as a Marvel superhero, the actress stated,

“I was so happy that they hired me because they want to show authentic representation of a deaf and Indigenous person. I’m deaf and Indigenous, so it’s just an amazing experience to go through.”

Even if many people have given the TV show Echo bad reviews before its release, there is still a chance that people will enjoy it because of its unique storyline and representation. According to reports, the creators and cast are highly optimistic that the series will be well received. 

Echo will be available to stream on Disney+ from 29 November 2023.
