Lance Reddick Says Netflix’s Resident Evil Albert Wesker ‘Is Not the Guy From the Games’

Lance speaks a little on his upcoming role.

2 min read

Resident Evil‘s upcoming live-action series is the latest adaption of a popular video game franchise that will be produced by Netflix.

Not much is know about the series other than the synopsis and several key characters, including Lance Reddick who will be playing series villain, Albert Wesker.

This new Netflix series will be completely separate from both the games and the films, seemingly wanting to give viewers a unique experience.

According to the synopsis, the series will take place in two timelines:  “In the first timeline, fourteen-year-old sisters Jade and Billie Wesker are moved to New Raccoon City. A manufactured, corporate town, forced on them right as adolescence is in full swing.

“Cut to the second timeline, well over a decade into the future: there are less than fifteen million people left on Earth. And more than six billion monsters — people and animals infected with the T-virus. Jade, now thirty, struggles to survive in this New World.”

Lance Reddick, who will play the role of Albert Wesker in the Resident Evil series, spoke recently with Express.co.uk on playing the role.

While Reddick wasn’t able to share too much about the series’ plot or characters, he did reveal one essential aspect of Albert in this new rendition.

“For the most part, the Albert Wesker that I’m playing is not the guy from the games,” Reddick revealed, “rather, he is based on a guy from the games.”

If Reddick is not portraying the video game version of Wesker, it is unclear on which other character the Netflix adaption will be based.

“Wesker seemed like he had a small role in one or two of the movies, so I came to the role without a backstory,” Reddick added.

I’m awake enough to know that Resident Evil is a huge property and so in that regard, I was really excited to interface with the fan base.

Reddick concluded with, “I’m awake enough to know that Resident Evil is a huge property and so in that regard, I was really excited to interface with the fan base.”

The new series’ debut date is currently unknown, with Netflix simply providing an outline of the plot and the major actors.

To say the least, it will be intriguing to see how this production plays out.
