Here is Robert’s first assertion relating to Lisa Trevor and her portrayal in Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City.

Lisa Trevor is definitely fairly a pivotal position in the film. I used to be at all times fascinated by her when taking part in the remake of the primary recreation. I discovered her character each disturbing and on the identical time surprisingly haunting. When we have been discussing how to deliver this story to life it was one of many parts that I actually wished to characteristic strongly as she has by no means been in any of the filmed variations of Resident Evil. I wished her to be a three-dimensional character, not just a few creepy specter. We solid Marina Mazepa, who had simply executed Malignant for James Wan and actually labored arduous in bringing this character to life in a means I believe the followers are going to love a lot. She’s terrifying but in addition tragic. In the film, we actually join her to Claire Redfield’s story, beginning with the orphanage the place Claire grew up.
