After the surprising Resident Evil 4 Remake reveal courtesy of Sony Playstation’s State of Play, there’s been a bit of a stir within the depths of the interwebs about Ashley Graham.
No, it’s not about the game’s new look, its possible mechanics, or even Luis Sera’s disappointingly non-comedic Spanish accent. We’re talking about Ashley Graham, boys and girls.
We kind of see why.
Not long after the reveal, Japan-based Dutch model Ella Freya officially confirmed her identity as the new Ashley Graham in the Resident Evil 4 Remake. She was pretty stoked about it, and so are we.
She expressed this excitement via Twitter. “When I saw the trailer, I almost cried. I’m so happy right now. Thank you everyone from the bottom of my heart”, she said.
While we have very little to sink our teeth into in terms of how the new Resident Evil 4 will turn out, it’s safe to say that we’re just a tad bit more invested now. I mean, Ella does have a lot of tasteful content. Just see for yourself.
