Trinidad-Born Actress Is One Of The Voices On She-Ra

admin



News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. Nov. 30, 2018: Trinidad-born actress Lorraine Toussaint is the voice behind Shadow Weaver on the Netflix’s reimagining of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power from Noelle Stevenson.

Hordak’s conniving sorcerer, Shadow Weaver, is desperate to reclaim her erstwhile ward in She-Ra and the former Orange Is the New Black actress gives voice to the villain character.  It is articulated with intimidation by Toussaint, who only answers to Horde leader Hordak (Keston John).

The new She-Ra series shares a foundation with the original but updates the concepts and visuals to suit modern audiences, as well as to showcase more diverse representation. He-Man has been eliminated as part of Adora’s origin story, the costumes and characters have been redesigned to look less sexualized, and the residents of Etheria come in more shapes and sizes than the largely Caucasian glamazons that populated the original series.

“She-Ra and the Princesses of Power,” is now available for streaming.

Toussaint was born in Trinidad and Tobago before moving with her mother to Brooklyn in the 1960s.
