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?

I don't think she could pull off Holly... Someone unknown should play Holly in my opinion. (Well, I still vote for Holly Marie Combs. I think she'd do great, even though I know her already.)

I can't imagine Piper as Holly. She doesn't have the right complexion, or the right face in my opinion. I could imagine Paige (Rose McGowan) or Phoebe (Alyssa Milano) as Holly, but not Piper.

Just the fact that I can name all three Charmed ones and the actresses who play them, and can name the dead sister from the beginning (Prue, Shannen Doherty) just speaks to my character. I'm sad now.

You're not sad. Most people in my neighbourhood can, because of me XD
Well, she's small, looks good, can fight, we know she can act, also we know she can act when things have to be edited in later (the powers)... If only she'd cut her hair (which I'd rather not, but that's my opinion) and have pointed ears, I could definitely see her as Holly.

^Finally some people who agree with me ^_^

Yeah, I saw the trailer and was looking up pics for her... and I saw the close up of her face... and I went like "W-O-W. Must post on Fangathering. Need her to be Holly in the movie." XD

W-O-W. Actually pretty good idea.

The only complaint I have is that most people who will show up to see the movie might be Twilight fans, not AF fans. I mean, just for Ashley Greene...

At least they'll sell enough tickets then. I can't say I haven't seen movies just for one actor (read: Johnny Depp. Awesomeness itself.)

Yea! I had a dream where she was Holly! That's wierd! I think she would make a good holly she's got a fighting background from the POTC movies. If she can handle a sword, she can handle a nuetrino. :)

Saorise Ronan=Holly.

Post by PastelBlue » Fri 11th Nov 2011

Back in April ,there was a article saying Eoin Colfer would like to have Saorise Ronan play Holly. Apperantly she met with him and Jim Sheriden.


I think she'd be good. She even has pointy ears! :shock:

^Hmm, ya, you have a good point. She looks good, and I bet she's a good actor (although I've never heard of her before XD), but she just doesn't seem... Holly-ish to me. I dunno.
