For Miriel, mother of Feanor, I nominate Rooney Mara. Since, alas, the most notable thing about Miriel is her fading after the birth of her son, I like the idea of a waifish, shorter actress for her: Rooney Mara is 5'3. (I also don't think we have to go with PJ's typecasting of elves as tall: while certain elves are described as tall, I'm not convinced every elf has to be.) She's also pale, which I think will suit her silvery hair better: tan and silver hair almost always looks like someone is playing "the old lady" in a school play to me.

Great suggestion! Could you enter it in the earlier thread about Míriel? It doesn't matter too much until we do the nomination but anyway?
