The Matrix franchise literally defined the sci-fi genre for people who grew up in the late 90’s and early 2000’s. It’s one of those collections of films that holds a sacred place in the hearts and minds of many because of everything it went on to inspire.
Despite all of this, the announcement of a new Matrix film was met with a collective groan of “please don’t ruin a good thing”. Sci-Fi fans are without doubt the most obsessive fandom you will find and it takes a brave soul to enter into their world.
Yahya-Abdul Mahteen II and Jessica Henwick are as brave and as talented as they come, so it’s no wonder that they stepped forward to take on a role in The Matrix Resurrections. Take a listen to how they prepared for their roles and dealt with the expectations of The Matrix fandom!
