With Season Two filming underway, Marvel announced Elodie Yung (Girl with The Dragon Tattoo) as The Greek Girl mentioned in “Nelson v. Murdock” (episode ten) co-starring with Jon Bernthal’s Punisher including a teaser poster. Executive Producer, Jeph Loeb said this:
After a worldwide search, we found in Elodie the perfect actress to embody both Elektra’s impressive and deadly physicality, as well as her psychological complexity.
Paired with Charlie as Matt Murdock, the two will bring one of the most beloved and tumultuous comic book relationships to life with all the accompanying sparks and spectacular action sequences the show is known for.

Elodie definitely looks more like Natchios then Jennifer Garner (Affleck’s now ex-wife) ever did despite her being French. She certainly can do martial arts in her fight scenes since she’s a black belt in Karate. Postively conveys “I will kill you without a second thought” stare well from District 13: Ultimatum.
The Hand’s star-pupil is probably sent to take out Hornhead since Nobu failed which causes conflict for her unlike Frank Castle, who dukes it out with Murdock for getting in his way from carrying out his fatal methods. More then likely Bullseye shows up to give her his magic trick towards the end.
Uncertain about Yung’s acting ability specifically during college flashbacks when Elektra dated Matt to their breakup after her father’s murder which pulges her into a world-of-darkness like source material. This also means an infamous love triangle since Murdock appeared to start-up a relationship with Karen.
