After charming us as the lovely Kate Sharma in season two of Netflix’s hit series “Bridgerton,” Simone Ashley is now the leading lady in Odesza’s latest music video. On Thursday, the electronic music duo dropped the visual for their song “Love Letter” feat. The Knocks from their most recent album, “The Last Goodbye.”
Ashley stars as a dancer named Iyla Chhaya, who channels her inner Karate Kid after receiving a series of rejection letters from numerous dance academies. “Cobra Kai”‘s Yuji Okumoto also makes a surprise appearance in the video as her sensei.
“Working with Simone on this project was such an honor,” Odesza said in a statement, per Teen Vogue. “She’s such a talented artist in her medium, and this was unlike anything we’d done before respective to our music videos. The director, Dan Brown, (who we’ve worked with before) wrote such a compelling treatment, and seeing her bring it to life in full was pretty surreal. It was such a cool way to reinterpret the song visually. We hope fans enjoy it as much as we did in making it.”
