Bringing a superhero to life from a comic book is not easy, but Elena Kampouris takes it on in Netflix's new series Jupiter's Legacy. Based on the comics by Mark Millar and Frank Quitely, the series spans decades and follows a group of superheroes and their children. When the first-generation superheroes start to look to their children to continue their legacies, the young heroes realize that it's harder to live up to their parents' massive public reputations.
To celebrate the release of Jupiter's Legacy, we sat down with Elena to chat about bringing Chloe Sampson from the pages of the comics to one of Netflix's first major superhero shows. Here's everything we learned:
1. I enjoy playing Chloe's unpredictability because you never know what she's gonna say or do. She's strong. She's raw. She's unfiltered. She could be throwing cars one second, then she could be punching people through the wall the next.
2. I love that she's multilayered. I love playing her complexities. I love that she's not just one thing. She's not just angst. She's not just attitude. She's also heart. She's very loyal, but she also has guilt. She's a whole amalgamation of different emotions. I love that she's devastatingly loyal, but she's also self-destructive because she's working through all of this pain.
3. I love playing her free-spirited nature because I admire how she is so outspoken and so passionate, and she marches to the beat of her own drum. There's a fearlessness that I do admire and that I love to play.
