Lance Reddick plays Albert Wesker in Netflix’s new ‘Resident Evil’ series
Reddick’s latest project is Netflix’s Resident Evil reboot. In the series, he portrays Dr. Albert Wesker, an Umbrella Corp. scientist who inadvertently creates the drug that causes a zombie apocalypse.
Reddick is no stranger to the sci-fi genre. But getting to portray multiple versions of Albert (the character turns out to be one clone of many) in Resident Evil was a unique experience.
“As an actor, you always want to do something different, and that was one of the reasons why I was so drawn to this, is because, well, I haven’t played a guy like this before, and I really want to do that,” Reddick told Collider.
“But you’re always looking to play something different and unique,” he added.
“So having a character that has so many different facets, it’s almost like getting a bunch of different jobs in one job.”
Resident Evil is currently streaming on Netflix.
