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?

In general I don't think of Keira Knightly as Holly, but that picture looks very Holly like! :D

I had already seen some pictures of her before and thought that she would be a great holly. Looks like I imagened holly and im sure she could pull off that character.

Ashley Greene as Holly?

Post by HollyShort9 » Tue 21st Oct 2008

Okay, so I was looking up Twilight movie pictures, and I saw a picture of the girl who plays Alice Cullen, who is Ashley Greene. And I thought, "Hey, she looks a LOT like a lot of people picture Holly, she'd be perfect for the part!" And so, here she is:

Image

If they put her hair in the same style, she'd look a lot like Holly! What d'ya think? I know if you look up pictures of her, most of them are with long hair at movie premeries, but either they put a wig on her or cut it and colored it slightly. If they did the same thing-- or something close-- for Artemis, wouldn't she be the perfect Holly?

The hair is pretty much how I pictured Holly, and the face is kind of elvish, but I think her skin is a bit too light for her to be Holly. Like, Quite a bit.

Does it matter if she has the same skin color or not, anyway? I mean, really, it's hard to imagine Holly with darker skin for me. I always picture her pale, even if they say she has darker skin.

Plus, very small details like skin colors don't really matter. If you don't believe me, try reading Twilight and then seeing the trailer. Laurent has dark skin in the movies, and the books say that his skin is light. Who cares about skin color?

Plus, if Ashley Greene is playing Alice, we all know she can act.

Well, to be fair, she has about a pound of makeup on, seeing as she is supposed to be really white and vampire-ish.
If she washed off the make-up and got a tan she could be chestnut-ish looking.

I actually have a hard time picturing Holly as anything but black.

Still, I don't think it matters what skin the actress has.

After all, like I said, in movies they've changed stuff like that before. Once again, here's an example: In the Twilight movie, the guy who plays Laurent is a black man with dreadlocks. Laurent has pale skin and a sleek black ponytail in the books.

Once again, doesn't really matter.

Wow, I think Ashley would be one of the best candidates for Holly. I never really thought of it, but she is.

Absolutely not.

I admit the picture is Holly-esque, but KEIRA KNIGHTLY as HOLLY??? No freaking way.

I'm not her biggest fan, as you may have guessed. I don't know who I would have as Holly, but not Keira Knightly. Please, no.

I must admit, that picture does scream Holly at me. I've just seen Kiera in too many films looking too "girly" for her to be my perfect Holly. I can't possibly imagine somebody playing the role of Elizabeth in Pride and Prejudice and then going to the opposite end of the spectrum and being Holly Short. She seems as if she's far better suited to more graceful roles in my opinion.

I've never heard of Ashley before now, but looking at that picture I would be happy if she was cast as Holly. She has a very similar bone structure to the Holly in my imagination :D I love the hair too. She would definitely have to have a similar hairstyle if she was Holly.
