Sherlock: Irene Adler in Series 3?
Lara Pulver has spoken about the possibility of returning as Irene Adler in the third series of Sherlock.
Pulver told the Evening Standard she was unsure if the character will be back.
“I have no idea where Steven and Mark [Gatiss] are going to go,” she said. “If they want to leave her as a one-episode wonder, then I completely back them. If they do bring her back, I’m sure it will be in the most unexpected, dynamic way they could possibly do.”
Pulver also explained she originally thought there may be a bit of a fan backlash to the character: “I thought I would get lovers of Benedict going ‘he can’t have a love interest’ but it was the complete opposite. I think they enjoyed the match of the two of us. If it had just been about a sexual attraction, people would have thought: ‘Why her? There are people who are more beautiful.’”
