'Shadow & Bone' Star Jessie Mei Lei Would Love Alina To Be Queer

Jessie Mei Li has opened up in a new interview about Alina’s sexuality on Shadow and Bone.

Speaking with Digital Spy about the diversity of the fantasy series that was based on Leigh Bardugo‘s book, the -year-old actress recalled how the show amplifies diverse voices.

“I love the way that race is depicted on this show. One of the things, when I was auditioning, was that slight concern of: is this just a diversity tick? Why have you done this?” she first questioned, and added that she “understood it wasn’t just that they wanted a person of color in the lead; they actually wrote Alina’s story to be a reflection of my experiences, and the experiences of Christina [Strain] – she’s Korean-American, she’s one of our writers.”

Netflix Drops Stunning & Haunting 'Shadow & Bone' Teaser Ahead of April 2021 Premiere

The first teaser for Netflix‘s Shadow and Bone is finally out!

While the first look doesn’t include any real footage from the fantasy series, it does show the iconic buck in the center of the forest, which is recognizable from the YA novel series.

Based off the book series of the same name by Leigh Bardugo, the series takes place in a world cleaved in two by a massive barrier of perpetual darkness, where unnatural creatures feast on human flesh. There, a young soldier uncovers a power that might finally unite her country.

But as she struggles to hone her power, dangerous forces plot against her. Thugs, thieves, assassins and saints are at war now, and it will take more than magic to survive.

The show will star Jessie Mei Li as Alina Starkov, Archie Renaux as Malyen Oretsev, Freddy Carter as Kaz Brekker, Amita Suman as Inej, Kit Young as Jesper Fahey and Ben Barnes as General Kirigan.

“We’ve taken the stories of Shadow and Bone and the characters of Six of Crows and we’ve brought them together in what I think will be a really unexpected way,” Leigh shared about the show in a Q&A feature. “When they watch this show, audiences are going to encounter a world that feels fully realized — but that doesn’t feel like any place they’ve been before. When I was on set, I didn’t want to leave. I wanted to stay in that world longer.”

Shadow and Bone will debut on Netflix in April 2021.
