Anyone you have in mind?
The pic of findley dancing convinces me..
I am almost 100% clueless about actors, so no I have no specific suggestions except for Curufin.
So, are we going for an older or younger Luthien?
Fully adult; I'm thinking mid-20's? We don't want her to look like a Disney princess (you know the old joke: you know you're an adult when your reaction to Ariel saying "I'm not a child!" is "you're 16. Yes, you are."), and with the rough life Beren has, the actor is going to have to look worn and therefore older, and we don't want them to be... unsettling together for a modern audience.
Hmmm, I think that an actress who reminds me of Gemma Arterton is Stella Maeve. She's been on the Law and Order TV shows.
No idea if she can dance or not, and she is rather short (ie, my height).
Oh, there's this clip, but this wasn't meant to be a serious dance scene!
Umm.. I'm not convinced, I think there's something about her voice that doesn't fit with my idea of what Luthien should sound like. Almost a bit hoarse, if you know what I mean?
Just found this video of Daisy Ridley... At least the video says it's her.
She looks a bit like Oona Chaplin.
Yeah you're right! We should put them in a family somewhere.
What do you think of the videos I found of Daisy Ridley?
I'm not going to support her playing Lúthien, sorry. I know you've been having her in mind since the beginning but she is not my idea of Luthien, I'm afraid.
I actually didn't know that joke. Well now I do...
Is anyone here familiar with Lana Del Rey? I only know she's a singer and not much else...
Anyway, I came across this random picture of her while looking up a song from an ad and it jogged my thoughts towards Luthien. So I did a cursory image search and found she and Arterton, while not really identical, maybe share *some* fleeting resemblance in a few, (very) specific photos. Interestingly enough, according to the internet they are the same age and height...
Edit: I actually find she looks a bit more like Natalie Portman, if anything. But it's not like we could really maximize on that, anyway.
