The two successful series “Arcane” and “Hawkeye” do not have much in common, apart from having the same main actress!
One is an animated series, the other a live action series. One is inspired by the League of Legends universe, the other is adapted from the Marvel franchise. One is on Netflix, the other on Disney +. On paper, it’s obvious that the Arcane and Hawkeye series don’t have much in common.
However, these two successes of the moment do have an element that connects them. The two programs indeed share the same main actress, namely Hailee Steinfeld. The young actress lends her features to Kate Bishop, the budding vigilante of Hawkeye, as well as his voice (in the original version of course) to Vi, the protagonist ofArcane.
Only 24 years old, Hailey Steinfeld is an accomplished singer and actress, with a nomination for the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in 2011 for the western True Grit, but also notable performances in the Pitch Perfect saga, Bumblebee or in the animated film Spider-Man: New Generation.
The nine episodes ofArcane are available now on Netflix; series Hawkeye is, for its part, to be discovered every Wednesday exclusively on Disney Plus!
