Leah Harvey rejoiced on playing the version of Salvor Hardin in Apple TV+’s Foundation. The character is gender-swapped and has taken an important role in the fight for the survival of the universe. All for the better.
Here’s the synopsis:
Based on the award-winning novels by Isaac Asimov, Foundation is a thrilling and emotional epic saga that chronicles a band of exiles on their monumental journey to save the fate of humanity amid the fall of the Galactic Empire. When revolutionary mathematician Hari Seldon predicts the impending demise of the Empire, he and his loyal followers venture to the far reaches of the galaxy to establish The Foundation in an attempt to rebuild and preserve the future of civilization. Enraged by Seldon’s claims, the ruling Cleons—a long line of Emporer clones—fear their unrivaled reign may be weakening as they become forced to reckon with the potential reality of losing their powerful legacy forever.
