Lists!

In an effort to make our casting section a little easier to navigate (especially if you're wondering if a name has already been mentioned in connection with a role), I've decided to compile a list of the names of every actor and actress we've suggested for roles so far. This will include the names of any and all characters each actor and actress has been suggested to play. Actors and actresses who have already been cast won't be included in this list*.

This means I'll be going through every thread in the casting section of this project. I'll also draw reference to any helpful lists others have made as I come across them.

I'm going to post all the names in the Elves and Men threads from the General discussion first, so we at least have a starting point. I'll of course be adding and editing as I go along. The plan is to have a pretty complete list by the end of this month, to which new names will be added as they are brought up in future. But, for now, it is very much work in progress. :)

Edit: I decided to sort by first name instead of last name, as that may be a bit friendlier to the eyes.

Update: The list is now pretty much complete. "Last update" and "Recent edits" will let you know how current it is, and which additions have most recently been made.

*See 'Other lists', below.

*Already cast as Aule but suggestion made that he use himself as a model for one of the Dwarves, i.e. Durin
** Already cast as Arwen but could be a credible candidate for Lúthien

Okay so the list is now mostly complete and I'll be updating it regularly. If I miss any names or if you spot any duplicates, do let me know and I'll take care of it. Enjoy!

Are you continuing to update the list?
Sorry about that! I've had a lot on my plate since the holidays ended and, sadly, my Silmfilm life has kind of been one of many casualties along the way (yes I did mix those metaphors). I am, however, trying to get caught back up on things as time affords and have plans to update the list hopefully some time tomorrow.

Given the amount of work that went into it, I'm sure that no one would begrudge Richol whatever time she needs to update it.
Haha, thanks Nick. :)

Question: In the "Recent edits" section, would you guys prefer me to put actor names in bold, or the character names in bold? I've just been putting the actor names in bold so far because the list itself is sorted by actor names. But if you're more interested in which characters have been updated, I can switch that around in the recent edits at least.

Thanks for your feedback!

One change I did make was replacing the "Mostly complete" status with a "Last updated" date at the top, so no one will have to scroll *all the way* to the very bottom of the list anymore, just to see when it was last updated. Hopefully that's a welcome change. :)
