We got to speak with Marli Siu on the Popternative show all about season 2 of the series Alex Rider coming to IMDB TV today. Based on the popular book franchise written by Anthony Horowitz, which has sold more than 20 million copies worldwide, the series follows Alex (Otto Farrant), a London-based teenager who has unknowingly been trained since childhood for the dangerous world of espionage.
In season 2, Alex is still reeling from the traumatic events at Point Blanc, and desperately wants to return to a normal life. But when his new friend Sabina’s (Charithra Chandran) father is attacked by Yassen Gregorovich (Thomas Levin), Alex reluctantly finds himself drawn back into the world of international espionage. Cut loose from his one-time allies within shadowy MI6 division The Department, Alex discovers a link between Ed, a dangerous hacker known as Smoking Mirror, and tech billionaire Damian Cray. With the help of Jack (Ronke Adekoluejo) and Tom (Brenock O’Connor), Alex must unravel a sinister political plot with global repercussions, the answer to which may be locked within Cray’s latest product, the global phenomenon video game Feathered Serpent. This season is based on the fourth book in the franchise, Eagle Strike.
In our interview, Marli talks about what we can expect with season 2 of Alex Rider, her character Kyra, why she enjoys working on the series and much more. She also talks about the unique situation where her character is actually not in the books series.
