Charlie Cox Spotted Kissing Margarita Levieva On Daredevil: Born Again Sets
After undergoing a creative overhaul Daredevil: Born Again is back in production and behind-the-scenes photos from the show’s sets have begun cropping up. Earlier, set photos confirmed the returns of Elden Henson and Deborah Ann Woll as Franklin “Foggy” Nelson and Karen Page. Now a new set of behind-the-scenes photos have revealed a kissing scene between Charlie Cox and actress Margarita Levieva.
Margarita Levieva was announced as a part of the cast of Daredevil: Born Again back in December 2022. Levieva is of Russian Jewish descent and rose to fame with her performance as Amanda Clarke / Emily Thorne in the ABC drama series Revenge. She also gained recognition for her role as Abby Parker in the HBO series The Deuce.
Levieva is expected to appear in the Star Wars universe with the upcoming series The Acolyte. In Daredevil: Born Again, Levieva will reportedly essay the role of Heather Glenn, who is primarily a love interest of Matt Murdock in the comic books. The kissing scene Cox and Levieva were spotted filming seemingly confirms the romantic angle between their characters will be comic-book accurate.
Margarita Levieva’s Daredevil: Born Again Character Sets Up Matt Murdock’s Darkest Romance
In Daredevil: Born Again, Margarita Levieva’s Heather Glenn will be seen romancing Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock. However, they have a torrid relationship in the comics, which faces problems because of Heather’s socialite status and Matt’s vigilante activities. Created by Marv Wolfman and William Robert Brown, Heather Glenn is the daughter of Maxwell Glenn, CEO of Glenn Industries.
In the comics, Heather and Matt have an on/off relationship until Heather leaves to take charge of her father’s company. According to reports, in the series, Heather will be a couple’s therapist who becomes a love interest for Matt Murdock. However, Heather will be revealed as the therapist of none other than Matt’s archnemesis Wilson Fisk, and his wife, Vanessa Fisk.
Heather’s on/off relationship with Matt in the comics culminates when she becomes a depressed alcoholic. However, Matt is unable to save her from dying from suicide. In the series, Heather is likely to face a similar fate after she discovers Matt and Fisk’s history and inadvertently gets caught up in the conflict between them. Hence, if Heather turns to suicide because of Matt, it could prove to be the darkest romance to date for Charlie Cox’s character.
