I just started watching Babe with my grandson and it occurred to me that
James Cromwell would be a good actor to play Robinton...His resume is varied and he has the right mix of guile/goodness/slyness....

Except that Cromwell is 68 (and looks it); whereas, Robinton is only 54, which happens to be the same age as Pierce Brosnan.

Alan Rickman is 62 and he is the quintessential Severus Snape in the HP movies...Snape was in his mid 30's in the book....granted most actors play older than they are rather than the reverse but it can be done...

Just a quick question re: the IMDB website...To get any info on the Dragonriders movie requires subscribing to another facet of the website...Would such a subscription be worth the money....Has anyone here subscribed and would recommend it? Thanks

An inspired suggestion, although the age of the actor would be an issue. I've seen Cromwell in a number of things recently and he was outstanding in them all.

Yeah, but he's already been in 2 different Dragon movies lately.

How about Tommy Lee Jones as Lytol?

And here's my favorite.

Sean Bean as Fax.

I'd seen the picture of Robinton and Peirce doesn't have that look. I think it'd be a little difficult to find someone that looks like that in the face that is able to sing and play instruments.(Hair is easy to dye.)


Lian Neeson.Ehhh. idda'now. Great voice, but probably not a Robinton. Ewan Megregor? WHere who would he be?

I like the actor who played Suresh(Heros) as Seball. Or one of the Dragon riders.

I do have to agree, though- she's a little big for Lessa, who is a wisp. Then again, maybe I'm just being a hard-to-please Pern fan here; maybe she would be the best choice for Lessa as it might be next to impossible to find anyone (who can act) who absolutely matches Lessa's description.

I've never actually met (or even seen) anyone with amber eyes. Is that a Pernese thing?
I don't know of any actresses that are 5' tall in America.

well, point of note, Wolverine of comic books was 1.6 meters tall (5'2") Hugh Jackman kinda towers over that height..... I figure if they can get someone who can act the part, I wouldn't care if she stands 6 foot tall and is husky......... actually that would be stretching it, but the character is still more important.....

I'm 5' tall but aren't an actress either. I can pull Lessa off in Cosplay. In front of a camera, I don't know unless I try.

While I would prefer an actress that short, the main thing is to get an actress of the correct build, and isn't TOOOO tall. 5'4" or less should be easy to pull off unless they get a short F'lar.

That's for sure GH. It's all about scale.
Great examples of this are in Lord of the Rings. Dwarves and Hobbits from the far away shots were smaller people, children.

Lessa's sammler heigt from a distance can be simulaited by using a shorter person of appropriate build when seeing the size differance betwen her and the other people is needed. A tight angle chest up shot, F'lar could be standing on a box.

Possible actresses with slim body builds

Lindsey Lohan?("Ghost Whisper")
Nicole De Bore("Dead Zone")
Kaylee from Firefly? (Now Stargate:Atlantis)
Summer Glau (Now Terminaitor:Sarah Conner Chronicles)

The last two are skinney stick chicks. Summer looks almsot like a child, and can kick butt.

Please not the first two! (Nicole is too old, and I don't want to be looking at Lindsay Lohan playing Lessa.)

Others to consider:

Lacey Chabert
Emma Watson

Lacey (Penny from Lost in Space) is more the proper height (5' 3" (1.60 m)
). She has also worked on a Copperheart project (Black Christmas).

Emma (Hermione from Harry Potter series) may be a little too tall (5' 6" (1.68 m) ), but she has the correct build and the chin (see the picture of Lessa in the PERN Encyclopedia).

Ok I'll give you that. Lindsey and Nicole are too old.

I looked at Emma and Lacey. I like how Lacey looks, I can see her as a Dragon Rider. Emma, I can see her as Sorka as well.

I still think Summer Glau would be a good Pernese charactor.

Don't actually agree with that, after the first film...but then again, I've seen shots of her in other things..

Speaking of the HP cast though.... all those redheads in the Weasley clan could hope over into the Hanaran clan!

It doesn't necessarily have to be a short actress. Going back to Lord Of The Rings, you have to remember that John Rhys Davies, who played Gimli was actually the tallest member of the cast. It was the use of a type of Forced Perspective filming that enabled him to appear as short as he did as the Dwarf.

I'd mentioned that as well. Use a smaller properly Lessa hieght acrtress for the distance and back shots, and the regualr actress for the close ups and sitting down shots.

Were you able to see Ballet Shoes?
I do think she does a fair/good job as Hermione and much of my dismay stems more from the writer/director driven changes in her role...
but I still don't think she would fit well on PERN....

Kate Mulgrew (Captain Janeway) would have made a good Lessa (Ryan's Hope days or an older Lessa for Skies of Pern or after the fall ) she is 5'5"

Kate would but she has that smoker's voice.
As for Kate's height, no problem, have her sitting down, and when she's next to other charactors, have her standing on a lower level. Or the actor standing on something.

Well since we can't borrow a dragon to nab her from that far back, how about she become Emily Boll? since she did have the Command attitude down.

what about the lady who was Deathstrike in the second X-men? Had to look her up, Kelly Hu.

Personally I think Lacy Chabert would make an excellent Lessa. Lindsay Lohan not so much, a bit too much in the chest, maybe if she could be convinced to return to red she could become Sorka.

After watching the first of the new *Bond* movies...I noticed Eva Green...
http://i87.photobucket.com/albums/k1...va_Green_8.jpg

http://danong.com/data/2007/07/21/22...va-Green-2.jpg

She has an intensity that reminded strongly of me of someone...and then it hit me...she would make and incredible *Lessa*...she has all the fire and look in her eyes [even though their blue, they can be changed] and all that fantastic attitude, our beloved Lessa is so famous for. She is very slight in size, more than young enough and has a very slight accent that give her voice an interesting a difference.

Oh wow. Eva has a great intensity.

Too bad Pern fans can't have an input as to who is to be whomcharactorwise. When the movie is being made, would Anne have any input as to which actors and actress to play charactors.

I saw a picture of Robinton online with the Pern Encyclopedia and I've been going through my mind of actors that'd look like that. The smiling face, bright glint in the eyes.

well, not emerald rose, but yes James Cromwell was the farmer from babe....

He was Also in Star Trek First Contact, and I, Robot. I dunno, He does come across as grizzled in most of his roles, if he was a bit more filled out he might be Fandarel better than Robinton.

A possible other suggestion for Fandarel could be Oliver Platt.
