    Alaqua Cox of Hawkeye and Echo Fame Speaks About her Solo Disney+ Series

    Published on

    Echo is her first ever acting role

    Echo was part of the list of Marvel shows unveiled during the Disney+ Day showcase. The character, who is Kingpin’s adoptive daughter in the comics, will make her first ever live-action appearance in the Hawkeye Disney+ series. Her own solo show will begin filming next year.

    And now, here’s a word from Echo herself, Alaqua Cox.

    Alaqua Cox’s experience

    Maya Hawke, aka Echo, is Alaqua Cox’s first acting gig, and boy did she nail a big one. Cox appeared for the red carpet event for Hawkeye‘s premiere on Wednesday night, and asked what her experience was. She expressed her gratitude to Marvel for letting a newcomer land such a big role in the MCU, and said it was “just so crazy” that she’s getting her own solo outing.

    Cox added that her life had changed so much after landing this role, and that she had dropped out of college, and had been working a factory job in Milwaukee until then. It was her friends who saw the casting call and told her that they’re looking for a Native American female actor who is deaf.

    Aside from being deaf, Alaqua Cox is also an amputee, and she had never seen anyone who was like her on screen. She also expressed her excitement at representing the Deaf community, and she hopes they will get more equality.

    About the character

    Echo first appeared in Daredevil #9 in December 1999, and was created by writer David Mack and artist Joe Quesada. Her echo disguise is a white handprint on her face, which was symbolic to the bloody handprint her father left on Maya’s face as he got killed by Wilson Fisk, aka Kingpin. He tells Fisk to raise her and he honors the dying wish. She had an ability to mimic actions, be it playing the piano after watching someone play it, or learning someone’s fight techniques in one go.
