but there isnt going to be a movie hopefully
Emilie De Raven
Fan Art version
Our very own Bridie!
I'll make it when I get into film school
I agree with Rachel McAdams (mainly because I liked her in The Notebook) and Rose Byrne... However I think Natalie Portman would do a good job as Maerad, like when she was in Anywhere But Here or something, i forget what it was called exactly
I thought of someone else who could play Maerad, Felicity Jones
She looks about the right age too
Good idea. The only people that should make movie adaptions of books are fans, I reckon.Originally Posted by Fionnoula
I voted for Eva Green, I think she's a fantastic actress and stunning as well. In the Kingdom of Heaven. Brilliant. Plus, which is always good, she looks a lot like how I imagined Maerad and I don't think she looks too old.
I voted for Alexis Bledel, because she has the right look, but I don't think she could necessarily pull of the character. Felicity Jones was a great suggestion though, just with some blue contacts. She is really close to how I imagine Maerad
I think Natalie Portman when she was young would have been the best bet...
however that's just me...
I think that fans should make the film and act in it. However unlikely...
The pic that Alex posted was of natalie portman at like age 13 and it was in a movie called "the Professional" in the US (Leon in the UK). I chose rachel McAdams, but now that I see pics of the other girls I would say either Alexis Bledel or Eva Green or that girl... Felicity Jones... I picture Maerad with long dark hair with a slight wave... not straight... like hair that kinda curls a little when it gets damp or wet... sexy hair I guess.. the kind of hair I would love to have. Natalie's hair is much too straight in the movie "anywhere but here" right age... wrong hair... and she has a too much of a warm facade... I always pictured Maerad as more closed off... slightly haunted... Natalie is too fun in my opinion... Love her tho as an actress
i have that type of hair. infact i think id be good for the part, my pics somewhere in mearads thread. but i have longer curlyer hair now and since my eyes change colour they are blue (for today...lol)
Alison how can you make everything sound so NICE!?It's enfuriatingly annoying!(in a nice way!)Just done some editing of this thread...be nice, my darlings. I believe the only thing that can get you kicked out of SFFworld is abusive behaviour, and I should hate any of you to be banned. And remember, one of the wonderful things about books is that there is NO definitive way any character should look, you are all free to imagine...so no one can be wrong, and everyone is right. If it ever gets to movie status, it's up to the casting director...so you would have to write abusive letters to him/her, if he/she got it wrong...!
My hair is just wavey long and brown-hmmm..but my eyes are green (vvv greeen too) so i guess I'm out...unless...aahha!contacts!how about Maerad with CATS EYES!no ones wrong!
lol Cats eyes?? she would look very much like an Elidhu then.
