We’ve seen Uma Thurman play supernatural characters before, like when she portrayed Medusa in 2010’s Percy Jackson & the Olympians.
Now, she’s stepping into the genre once again with the Netflix original series Chambers. The 10-parter centers on a young woman who receives a heart transplant and soon after develops sinister personality traits, reports Empire.
Thurman will play the mother of the heart donor, who according to the show’s description, starts to believe her daughter may not be “as dead as she thought.”
The recipient attempts to forge a relationship with the mother, and the closer they get, the more she becomes like her deceased benefactor.
It’s not clear if Thurman’s character will also have unexplained abilities, but if her daughter has supernatural powers, maybe she inherited them…
Leah Rachel (Audrey) is the creator and writer for Chambers, and she’ll co-run the show with Akela Cooper (American Horror Story).
We’ve seen Thurman in a number of iconic roles like Mia Wallace in 1994’s Pulp Fiction and the vindictive heroine in the Kill Bill series (2001-2004). As well, she’s starred in suped-up, if not actually supernatural, roles like Poison Ivy in 1997’s Batman & Robin and G-Girl in 2006’s My Super Ex-Girlfriend.
More recently, she’s been spotted in Bravo’s crime drama Imposters playing seasoned con artist Lenny Cohen:
Thurman has also signed on for Girl Soldier, a film adaptation of journalist Kathy Cook‘s non-fiction book, Stolen Angels. It documents the 1996 kidnapping of 30 Ugandan schoolgirls who were forced into becoming child soldiers. The release date has yet to be announced.
