Freya, who lives in Japan, reported shortly after the game’s announcement on social media that she is giving her appearance to Ashley Graham, the daughter of the US president in the game. “When I first saw the trailer I almost burst into tears. I am so happy.”
While unconfirmed, it’s likely that Freya is only providing her appearance and not acting further in the game. Something similar was done with the character Jill Valentine in Resident Evil 3 – she is based on a Russian model in appearance. Ashley in the original Resident Evil 4 is based on the model Brooke Elizabeth Mathieson and voiced by actress Carolyn Lawrence.
The Resident Evil 4 remake was announced during the State of Play broadcast last week. The game will be released on March 23, 2023 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and S, and PC. There is also PlayStation VR2 content around the game in development, although nothing further is known about it.
