Zelda series creator Shigeru Miyamoto and A Link to the Past director Takashi Tezuka recently sat down for an interview with MTV and spoke about the possibilities of a film version of The Legend of Zelda, among other Nintendo franchises. While no such film is in the works, Tezuka said that he would like to see Link played by a “boyish female actress.”
“It would be very fun and awesome if Link was played by a female actress, a boyish female actress.”
Given Link’s androgynous look, this definitely wouldn’t be out of the realm of possibility. Do you believe that Link should be played by a female if a Legend of Zelda film were to happen?
