Airing the full season 1 from August 31, the most anticipated live-action project of 2023 One Piece (Pirate Island) has made audiences around the world extremely excited. The film is adapted from the best-selling manga series of all time by Eiichiro Oda, which attracts attention when it has a cast that closely follows the original. Out of the 5 main characters, only one member is female, and Nami is also the most controversial name in terms of visuals recently.
Joining Netflix’s live-action version of One Piece, Emily Rudd plays Nami – the only female member at this time of the Straw Hats. She was only 18 years old at this time, and was the second member to accept Luffy’s invitation to become a member of the team. With the portrayal of an 18-year-old girl still dreaming and full of youth, Emily Rudd initially made viewers extremely confused and suspicious.
In the first series of “teasing” images of One Piece live-action, Emily Rudd’s Nami image was controversial for having a “bad” feature, lacking her inherent sensuality in the manga and anime. But when entering the movie, Netflix’s version of Nami regained quite a bit of sympathy thanks to its natural acting, fully compensating for the appearance that has not yet convinced the majority of the audience.
The female lead of One Piece on the film is still quite “dumb”
In fact, to get the role of Nami of One Piece, Emily Rudd took 3 years of “conspiracy” to be able to win absolutely. As soon as he heard that Netflix was about to produce a live-action One Piece, Rudd immediately dyed his hair red, then posted a series of videos of her in her youth, doing many risky moves on social media. Thanks to that, she was noticed when she reminded Nami from her appearance to her dynamic personality, then easily got accepted.
Born in 1993, Emily Rudd was previously known to audiences when participating in Netflix’s murderous thriller series Fear Street. After nearly 10 years of acting in many different big and small projects, the role of Nami is definitely the biggest opportunity that the actress has received, showing that the author Oda and the production side fully believe that she can make things happen. when going on a long journey as a female robber of the Straw Hat Pirates. In addition, Emily Rudd in real life is quite pretty and young, thereby causing regret when shaping Nami on the screen has not really shown her beauty.
