Vanessa Kirby, singing in The Crown as Princess Margaret.
So, it turns out that the actor who won for Ecthelion can also sing. I think he's mostly only done karaoke before, but he recently played Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee, so had to practice a bit of singing for that role.What keeps you from nominating him to play Ecthelion??
I can see no reason not to nominate him.
I've been looking for clips of Simon Woods (Sauron) singing; all I come up with is stuff for Simon Cowell.I’m not sure what to say, but I feel that this thread has to have more impact on our casting choices. And I also think that we’ve missed a few opportunities up until now. For example, even though we had discussed this, we nominated and elected an actor for the role of Finrod who did not have any apparent singing skill. To be honest, I think we should have had this discussion while casting some of the Maiar, like Yavanna and definitely Sauron. One could argue that the singing could be added in post production but I feel such a choice is giving up and accepting the trammels of reality too much.
