I love a great baddy and Andreya Nancy Young chose a corker… We used Rayner’s Bar on Hessle Road as a location to channel Andreya’s inner Elle Driver (played by Daryl Hannah).
Elle Driver, a.k.a. California Mountain Snake (portrayed by Daryl Hannah), is another swordswoman who is loyal to Bill. Elle and The Bride despise each other immensely, and it is implied that their mutual hatred came to be before the events of the film. Elle is jealous of The Bride’s status as Bill’s lover, implying that Elle herself also had some kind of sexual relationship with him. Despite this, Elle does grudgingly respect The Bride, describing her as “the greatest warrior [she] had ever met” and also believing that she deserved better than to have supposedly met her end at the hands of someone like Budd.
