Sylvia Hoeks Talks about Creating the Peculiar Voice of Queen Kane in ‘See’
Sylvia Hoeks wanted to make the character bit ‘awkward and crazy.’
Originally published on GlamourBuff.com
If you enjoyed watching AppleTV+’s See, you’ve undoubtedly been acquainted with Queen Kane, played by Dutch actress Sylvia Hoeks.
See takes place in a dystopian future when sight is no longer the norm, and the ability to see is seen as wicked and the result of witchcraft.
In the first episode, two blind children are born, and their mother, played by Hera Hilmar, and adoptive father, played by Jason Momoa, must flee with their whole tribe to escape the children from Queen Kane, played by Hoeks, and her Witchfinder General Timacti Jun.
Here’s what Hoeks has to say about her character’s voice and the fan’s reaction to the character’s sound.
Sylvia Hoeks wanted to make the character weird and awkward
Hoeks talked to iHorror about her character and how she got it. She explained that it all started with a self-taped audition when series creator Steven Knight approached Hoeks.
She became instantly connected to the character as she began diving into the parts provided to her.
“I really loved what I read of the queen and this intriguing new world,” the actress explained. “I had quite an idea already about how I wanted to pursue the role if I got it. I really wanted to make it weird and awkward and a bit crazy,” the actress shared.

That involved approaching director Francis Lawrence and explaining her desire to shave her head. Lawrence agreed, and her inner feelings and thoughts gradually began to shape Queen Kane on set.
This involved crafting an unusual and exciting tone to her speech, giving it a lilting sing-song type character that, among other things, occasionally throws the listener off-balance, unclear of her motives or intents.
“I though of Lou Reed and some of his interviews that I had watched,” Hoeks said, laughing.
“He toyed with the journalists during interviews. He was definitely under the influence of a lot of things but he does it in a way so that he sounds a bit crazy but in a way that’s very intriguing.”
“It’s almost like a cat who is playing with a mouse so I tend to take it from there. Queen Kane uses her voice to play with her mice,” she said, talking about her inspiration behind the voice.
She described it as an incredible opportunity to portray a part intended for a powerful woman who did not rely on her body or sex to maintain her kingdom.
Fans react to Queen Kane’s voice for ‘See’
Many fans, after watching See, found Queen Kane’s voice repulsive. One viewer posted on Reddit, “What the f with Kane’s voice?”
While others had their own theories as to why Queen Kyne had a peculiar voice. “I have a theory as to why the queen talks like that,” another fan took to Reddit to share his thoughts.
“What if it’s a royal accent. How else would you tell you were really talking to her or you heard someone with a similar voice. Given everyone’s blind I’m sure a form of trickery (and crime) was impersonation.”
“To claim you’re the most powerful person in the land would be easy and everyone would start doing it causing chaos. So the accent is one of a kind. We have The Queens English in Britain which is just a way she talks so its not that big of a leap they could have developed something similar. Either that or she’s just a weird actor.”

Inside Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman’s Height Difference
There is a noticeable height difference between Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.
Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are both British actors who are perhaps best known for their roles in the television series Sherlock, which aired from 2010 to 2017.
In the series, Cumberbatch played the title character, Sherlock Holmes, while Freeman portrayed his sidekick, Dr. John Watson. Fans of the show have been obsessed with the height difference between the two actors, with many taking to social media to discuss and comment on it.
According to their IMDB bios, Cumberbatch stands at 6’0″ (183 cm) while Freeman stands at 5’7″ (170 cm). This means there is a noticeable height difference between the two actors when they appear on screen together.
Fans reacted to the height differences
Fans have been discussing the height difference between Cumberbatch and Freeman, and this has been a topic of discussion and memes on social media.
Twitterati has burst with a post that compared the height of these two The Hobbit actors. One Twitter user posted a photo where Cumberbatch and Freeman stood together.
She wrote in the caption, “I’m the same height as martin freeman.. So this is basically mine and benedict Cumberbatch’s heights compared..”

The post compared the height of both actors from their hands to their heads.
On a fan page dedicated to Cumberbatch, a photo was posted featuring Coca-Cola bottles of varying heights, with the bottle labeled ‘Ben’ being taller than the one labeled ‘Martin.’
The caption mocked the height of Cumberbatch and Freeman as it read, “even the height difference is accurate…”

Like the meme above, one of the Twitter users tweeted, “Benedict Cumberbatch is 14 Martin Freemans tall.”
In reply to the tweet, another user tweeted, “But when Benedict Cumberbatch takes his shoes off, his mouth is magically level with Martin Freeman’s face. Nature has decreed it so.”
The tall height of Cumberbatch alone has always dragged the attention of the fans. One fan tweeted, “I hate when I’m trying to sleep then I’m overwhelmed with the need to google something, like how tall is Benedict Cumberbatch I need to know.”
Similarly, the other one wrote on Twitter, “So, I just met Benedict Cumberbatch. I can’t stop shaking. How is he so tall? I barely come up to his frickin’ shoulder.”
Something not well between Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman
It’s not surprising that Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are compared to each other, especially since Freeman also played a dwarf in the movie The Hobbit. Along with the fan’s comparison, there was a certain feud seen among the actors.
Mirror, in 2014, also reported that the two actors had a “toxic feud” on the set of the hit TV series Sherlock. According to the article, tensions rose between the two stars due to creative differences and egos. Freeman reportedly felt overshadowed by Cumberbatch’s popularity and the attention his character, Sherlock Holmes, was receiving.
According to the anonymous source, the two actors had a complicated working relationship and barely spoke to each other by the end of the show’s third season. It also suggested that Freeman’s dissatisfaction with the show’s direction may have contributed to his decision to leave after the fourth season.
Freeman, known for his role in The Office, has expressed his dissatisfaction with the overwhelming fan attention that comes with starring in Sherlock.“Being in that show, it is a mini-Beatles thing. People’s expectations, some of it’s not fun anymore,” he said.
In contrast, during an interview with The Telegraph in April 2018, Cumberbatch expressed his disagreement and criticized his co-star’s remarks. He noted, “I’m very grateful for the support, but that’s about it. It takes on its own thing. But that happens with every franchise or entity like this.”
Fans Want Nessa Barrett to Collab with Lana Del Rey and Blackbear
Will Nessa Barrett work with Lana Del Rey and Blackbear in the future?
Fans want American singer Nessa Barrett to collaborate with Lana Del Rey and Mat Musto aka Blackbeard, after they followed each other on Instagram.
Barrett’s fans became excited about the collaboration with Lana Del Rey after she mentioned her name in an interview at the American Music Awards. She was asked, “if you could record with one artist then who would it be?” to which Barrett said, “I feel like Lana. I just love her and I am very inspired by her. She is all over my playlist. I feel like she has just a distinct style. I appreciate her as an artist.”
On November 21, 2022, Variety posted a clip of her interview with the caption, “Nessa Barrett says her dream collaborator is Lana del Rey.” Following the post, many Barretts’ fans expressed their desire to see them in a future album.
One social media user wrote, “omg these two women would be so iconic together,” while another said, “friend I saw you talking about her and now I read this here I also remembered you kkkkk,” in Portuguese.
Barrett and Del Rey started following each other on social media shortly after Barrett mentioned her desire to collaborate with Del Rey. Barrett also followed Blackbear, which his followers noticed right away and expressed their desire for them to collaborate in the music.
Similarly, whore4tea posted a screenshot of their social media account showing that they had recently followed each other and wrote, “First Lana Del Rey followed her, now blackbear?? We need a collaboration!” followed by a smiley and a heart emoji.
Even though fans are excited to see Barrett, Lana Del Rey, and Blackbear working together on new music, the singers have yet to respond.
Nessa Barrett is TikToker turned singer
When Barrett first entered the public eye, she was well-known for her lip-syncing videos, and now, she’s kicked off a pretty massive music career. She first released her piano-based ballad debut single ‘Pain’ in 2020.

Later in October of the same year, Barrett released her second single, ‘If U Love Me,’ and in August 2021, her song ‘I Hope Ur Miserable Until Ur Dead’ debuted at number 88 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Barrett’s life has revolved around music. “If I’m being honest, music is one of the only ways that I can express myself because I can say so much that’s on my mind without actually saying it,” she said in an interview with the music blog Cool Accidents. “It’s my only outlet, my only coping skill and it does help.”
Blackbear dropped out of high school to pursue a music career
Growing up with a heroin-addicted father, Blackbear found solace and escape in music. He then dropped out of high school to pursue music full-time and began sending demos to people in the music industry.
Later, he received one response from the manager of R&B singer Ne-Yo, who invited the young Mat to Los Angeles to spend a week writing songs with him.
Since then, Blackbear entered the music industry and released various studio albums, including, Deadroses, Help, Digital Druglord, and many more.
Lana Del Rey has had a lifelong interest in music
Del Rey began her career by performing at open mic nights and club gigs. She entered a songwriting competition in 2006; she did not win, but a panel judge assisted her in creating a demo, which led to her signing with the indie label ‘5 Points.’
Later, Del Rey posted self-made music videos for her songs ‘Video Games’ and ‘Blue Jeans’ to YouTube in 2011, with vintage footage interspersed with shots of her singing on her webcam.
After a lengthy career in the music industry, her song ‘Born to Die’ achieved commercial success, charting at number one in 11 countries and debuting at number two on the US Billboard 200 album chart. She has since released several albums, including Born to Die, Ultraviolence, Lust for Life, and many more.
