The Gifted’s Elena Satine Joins Netflix’s Cowboy Bebop
Netflix’s live-action adaptation of Cowboy Bebop has lined up Elena Satine. According to Netflix, she will portray the role of Julia. She’s described as a “sultry beauty with a voice to die for.” Julia is also a woman who was romantically involved with John Chow’s Spike Spiegel in the past.
Satine will appear alongside Cho, Mustafa Shaki, Danielle Pineda, and Alex Hassell. She also has some experience in genre television. In the first season of The Gifted, Satine portrayed Dreamer. She also made a guest appearance as Lorelei in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in its first season.
The Cowboy Bebop series was announced late last year, with an initial ten-episode run. Netflix lists it as a “jazz-inspired, genre-bending story of a ragtag crew of bounty hunters on the run from their pasts, as they hunt down the solar system’s most dangerous criminals. They’ll even save the world…for the right price.”
