Howdy!

Here's a curious little question; if you could pick any person from the real-world to portray your character, who would it be? Who do you think would fit best, either in physical appearance, or in their personality, behaviour and mannerisms?

This is a little just-for-fun thread for our own amusement, and there aren't really any rules here. There was a similar thread that was created a long time ago, but as it was so old, I thought it would be better to create a new thread, rather than performing thread necromancy. If you want to see the previous entries, check out the link above; some of the suggestions are quite uncanny!

So, I'll go first!

Having had by the this point several years to contemplate this surprisingly tricky question for my own character, Braya, I finally came to a reasonable conclusion; Grace Park. I put together a couple of comparison images for your enjoyment; open in a new tab for glorious (-denis?) maximum resolution.

Hmmm, an excellent question. When it comes to Thorne, I find this one rather tricky to answer. A young Michelle Forbes as Ro Laren? Too angry. A young Sean Young as in Dune or Bladerunner? Maybe. However, I keep coming back to Scarlett Johansson's deadpan delivery of Joss Whedon's dialogue in the Avengers, so I think she could play Thorne's (occasional) aloof way of taking everything literally quite well - also, I see Thorne's no-nonsense professionalism reflected in Black Widow.

So yes, I whipped up this quick photoshop of a younger Thorne during her time with the Chiss Expansionary Defense Force.

Man, that thread's a blast from the past, and those are indeed glorious pictures!

It's been a while since I've really thought about it, but I think I'm still favouring Tom Hanks to play Gloridenis. More than that, I think Glori would be a mix of Hanks in his role in the 'Burbs as Ray Peterson and You've Got Mail as Joe Fox - Slightly paranoid and exceptionally wary, somewhat aloof and distant as well as a bit of a royal snob, but beneath that, a kind and weary soul simply trying to make it by day to day.

Plus, I mean, the glasses just make it.

Lana well.... Naomie Harris, the most recent Miss Moneypenny. Only downside is she's likely have to pad her bra. But.. socially awkward, always after guys who can't love her back... kick ass.. Rather fitting.
