Captain Holly Short- Who?

Which actors would you like to cast? What do you want to see? What would you do if you were the director?

Whoever she is, she'd have to be darker skinned. Holly is described as having 'almond skin'.
I can't really find anyone that works for Holly. There is one fancast that is popular on Tumblr, but her name escapes me. She looks like Holly, she'd just have to dye her hair.
I prefer someone between 16-21 though, especially considering the 'kiss', and I've always thought of Holly as younger.

I recently saw Foxfire Confession of a girl gang by Laurent Cantet. In the beginning I simply enjoyed the movie ; but then Legs, Raven Adamson's character, had her hair cut, and I immediately thought : "Oh my god, it's Holly !!!" O.O

More I think about it and more I'm getting sure that Raven Adamson would be perfect. She has brown hair, quite-dark skin and, most of all, she acts wonderfully well *O*

I wouldn't say that's quite dark skin (maybe for a white person yeah) but like like P5 said on tumblr "When it comes time to cast the movie, there’s pretty much no excuse for casting white actors in those roles" (also referring to the Butlers who are biracial)

Ruth Negga? I lovelovelove her for the part, if that's who you mean - she's my top pick right now with Lenora Crichlow as second

I don't know that it's especially likely that we'll actually get an actress of color though, since Eoin himself has said his dreamcast would be Saoirse Ronan :l

can we PLEASE take a moment here to stop whitewashing?? holly is clearly described as having nut brown skin and a hooked nose and none of the actresses that any of you have mentioned have come close to matching that description. i'm really passionate about this issue and i hope they don't do it to holly :/ that would be my worst nightmare.
