Although the secondary characters of the new production of the Netflix Umbrella Academy, the killers Hazel and Cha Cha are still the most interesting and the most developed of the series. A replay of the characters The adaptation by Netflix of comic books Umbrella Academy by Gabriel Bá and Gerard Way was expected at the turn by the fans. With its offbeat world and its strange characters, showrunner Steve Blackman had before it the ideal material to make a series of super-hero like no other. But this last has led to some changes, particularly regarding the treatment of Hazel and Cha Cha, two secondary characters that the fans love. Originally, these two hired killers working for the Temps Aeternalis are violent criminals and bloodthirsty, which have the mission of kill Number 5. Cha Cha is a neo nazi and Hazel especially like the torture. They are recognizable by their colorful masks which they never separated and have a pronounced taste for sweets. D. R. In the series, it’s Mary J Blige and Cameron Britton that creep in the black suit and white Hazel and Cha Cha. They share a strange friendship, which will be called into question throughout season 1. If at first this amazing duo and explosive is presented as the enemy of the family Hargreeves, it develops its own plot. The success of these characters lies in the performance and chemistry of its two actors. A closeness that is felt during the different interviews they had given to the press. After being terrified in the series Mindhunter where he stood the serial killer Ed Kemper, Cameron Britton offers here a character more nuanced : “To be quite honest, I didn’t want to choose any project after Mindhunter. I wore my choice on Hazel because it is its opposite. But it was not difficult to get into this character because he really is different. I do not hide from you that I have a little bit improvised throughout the shooting. I have put in the time to grasp it. When we were shooting the episode 2, I asked myself some questions about it and there was a lot of discussion with Mary. Got to episode 10, I finally understood what kind of man he is. And I’m really attached to him, I support it !”. Christos Kalohoridis/Netflix As Mary J. Blige, she defends the role of a strong woman who could blush other heroines badass of the small and big screen. A 48-year-old singer and actress has followed martial arts courses in order to learn unarmed combat. As such, the best scenes of the series involve at least one of the two characters, like in episode 3 where Hazel and Cha Cha are fighting against the members of the Umbrella Academy on the title “Run On” of’sinnerman. Hazel and Agnes, with love unlikely To give more depth to the character and create a true offset comical at some moments, the show writers have created a story of impossible love between Hazel and Agnes, the seller of donuts for at least 20 years his elder : “I wanted that Hazel changing lane and ceases to be the assassin for a real good reason. I wanted to fell in love but this is special,” said Steve Blackman to CBR . Also a way of humanizing the character and create more challenges and dynamism in the duo Hazel and Cha Cha so much so that at the end of season 1, the two killers have a plot parallel to those of the members of the Umbrella Academy who are trying to stop the Apocalypse. Still in his interview for CBR, Blackman says he has received a few negative opinions when it announced that it wanted to write this plot in love : “I think that love has no age but people have told me that there was a too big age difference between the two. I remember having asked to imagine the opposite. People would not have said anything. So why not do it ?”. In the comicsn Hazel and Cha Cha kidnap Agnes and torture her so that she cooks delicious pies. Christos Kalohoridis/Netflix in The end, Hazel is probably the character from the Umbrella Academy all the more interesting. As for Cha Cha, it has not said its last word, and if season 2 there are, it might reserve us some surprises.
