Perfect since I know this actress can play down her strength and come across more sad and quiet.

I've been looking at alternatives for my oldest choices.  Would Jenna Louise Coleman (DOCTOR WHO) work as Brekke?

No ... way to sexy in both looks and her underlying personality. Brekke isn't sexy in any way shape or form she is not a very pretty girl. When F'nor discribes her she not very pretty at all but she very sweet and has a very strong magnatisim about her thus everyone loves her.

Could Coleman then work as a possible Lessa?

Good God... they're exactly the same. Kill me if Robin didn't think of Jewel while doing this portrait.
But for me she's too... cheerfull for Brekke. I only saw her in Firefly (and loved her), but for this role...
But the looks... God!

Many of my original choices are now too old for the roles, care to help me come up with some alternatives?

Well, I don't think she's too old. She coild pull off Brekke. I loved her in Firefly, and would like to see her somewhere else.
As for the alternatives... to tell you the truth I myself haven't been looking for likely actors, and noone pops to mind right now.

My brother has been trying to get me to see Atlantis for years now. Maybe now that I know she's in it I'll give it a go.
A doctor, you say? So, in Firefly she fall's in love with a doctor, and in Atlantis she's one herself. :) That must've been interesting.

I think they paired her up the really geeky looking doctor.

Now this . . . is perfect. She could deliver "Don't leave me alone!" perfectly.

I completely agree of course. Have you seen my other fancastings for Pern?

I regret to say that I haven't read very many of the Pern books. I like to buy my books new. Once I start reading a book, I carry it everywhere with me, and it suffers a good bit of abuse because of that. For this reason, it takes me a long time to buy books in a series (and I have quite a few series I'm a fan of). So all of that to explain that I have only read the Harper Hall trilogy, Dragonflight, and am working on the Chronicles of Pern.

Harper Hall trilogy. Menolly writes a song about it. :-) From what I understand, her stories have a lot of continuity.

Actually, Dragonflight may touch briefly on the moment, too. It's been a while since I've read that one, though.

This is a good call, and I find it amusing that you are porting so many of the Firefly cast into Pern haha

i've not seen Jewel do anything besides Kaylee but I think she could pull off the mothering/healing hand of Brekke. (the catatonic/depressed version too)

Stargate Atlantis. :-) She does a great job in whatever she plays, but her character there made me become a truly big fan of her as an actress.

i've never watched any of the Stargate tv series but i've always loved the movie.... i suppose i'd probably like them given i DO like the sci-fi/action genre. :)

Warning: Geek Post Ahead. Proceed at your own risk.

I'm a Stargate geek, but realize that in order to really like and appreciate it, you need to watch the series from the beginning and buy into the laws of the Stargate universe. Otherwise, it's a far dorkier show than either Star Trek or Star Wars. In Stargate SG-1, they start making fun of themselves around season 6, which is hilarious. Stargate Atlantis is a spin-off of SG-1.

Jewel Staite doesn't come in until season 4 . . . so it might not be worthwhile to watch a whole series just for one character. :-D Unless you like all the actors from Firefly, in which case you might enjoy seeing Adam Baldwin and Morena Baccarin in Stargate SG-1.

i love all the firefly actors! :hug: so after chatting with you here i did a little checking out of the stargate series and realized how MUCH there is! :eyepopping: so many episodes! WOW. i guess if i ever get the urge to watch, i will be working at them for a long while! i'd probably get around to watching the show even if the Firefly crew weren't in it.
And dorkiness doesnt bother me much. :) i love star trek, star wars, & Firefly (obviously)....sometimes i thought firefly was kinda dorky too, cuz you cant deny that Joss Whedon is DORK. :lmao:

she's gorgeous of course, but I don't know if she could pull off Brekke's delicacy. Did you choose someone for Mirrim? I love that character. I can't wait to see.

Oddly enough I do someone who could be good as Mirrim. I wasn't playing on casting her but who knows.

Ah yes, Firefly! Oh hell yeah, she'd be totally perfect as Brekke! Lol, boy, she'd really get Kylara's undies in a bunch, wouldn't she?

I can sorta see Angelina Jolene as Kylara, with different hair, of course! Maybe even the woman who played Dr Snieder from Indiana Jones and the Holy Grail. She was the influence behind my Weyrwoman character Ynora.

My original choice if they had done it in the 90's would have been Heather Lockler.

Skymouth Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2010
Hmmm... maybe... but remember Kylara was voluptuous, so I was figuring someone with a bit more of a rack and the lips to match. That's why I vote for Angelina.

I know this will sound funny but I wasn't picking an actress based on her bust size, but rather on her work and her overall look. Jolie is a pretty good choice though.
