Wallis Day Q&A
Describe Krypton in three words
Dangerous, mysterious and unpredictable
Name one similarity and one difference between you and your character, Nysa-Vex.
We’re both risk takers but she doesn’t wear her heart on her sleeve like I do.
If you could have any B-class superpower, what would it be?
I would never need sleep!
What is your Kryptonite?
Where do you see yourself in five years time?
I would love the opportunity to play the kind of badass rolls that both Angelina Jolie and Alicia Vikander play.
Is there anyone in particular you base your character on?
No, I just worked with the producers, writers and directors, on and off set, to try and cry create the powerful, enigmatic character Nyssa is.
If Nyssa-Vex had a motto, what would it be?
“Eye for an eye”
