Natalia Tena’s “Residue” on Netflix – plus, review!
We can’t wait to welcome the wonderful Natalia Tena (Tonks) to MuggleNet Live! next week. But if you can’t wait that long to see Nat – or can’t make it to MuggleNet Live! – then good news since Nat’s new series, Residue, is on Netflix.
The series, in which Nat plays a photojournalist, is described as follows:
After a freak explosion wreaks havoc on a sprawling city of the future, eight survivors get caught up in the aftermath and its paranormal effects.
Pop Insomniacs further write in a review that
the first episode of the show starts out with a bang—literally. Within the first five minutes, an underground club in the middle of what is presumably London explodes. Three weeks later, most of the citizens in the city have evacuated under government warning that an unknown toxic substance from the explosion is contaminating the city.
The review continues to explain more about Nat’s role:
Jennifer Preston (Game of Thrones[‘s] Natalia Tena), a photojournalist, and her boyfriend Jonas (Iwan Rheon, who also appears on Game of Thrones) still live on the outskirts of the city. Armed with a camera and an unknown motivation for trying to unearth the truth about what caused the explosion, Jennifer wanders the city and takes pictures of anything that looks suspicious, returning home to her apartment late at night to staple morbid pictures to her wall and try [to] figure out why the people in said morbid pictures are committing a new string of suicides, and homicides are occurring in the city.
The first three episodes from Season 1 are now available on Netflix, and you can read the full review here.
