Who do you think should play Snow White?
Image Credit: Walt DisneyWhich fair actress might play the part of a storybook princess with “skin white as snow, lips red as a rose, and hair black as ebony”? Universal Pictures is reportedly looking for a young actress, possibly a lesser-known one, to play the starring role in Snow White and the Huntsman (Charlize Theron and Michael Fassbender are rumored to be in talks for the roles for the evil queen and huntsman). So far, some of the names on the supposed shortlist have been Swedish actress Alicia Vikander, Felicity Jones (who was in 2008’s Brideshead Revisited and can be seen in Julie Taymor’s The Tempest), Bella Heathcote and Riley Keough — the granddaughter of Elvis, so no stranger to (rock) royalty.
If we had the power to control Hollywood casting (would that we could) and the time/space continuum (ditto), it’s fun to imagine a still-undiscovered Anne Hathaway or Mila Kunis in the role. Or push for Friday Night Light‘s Aimee Teegarden, True Blood‘s Deborah Ann Woll, or Harry Potter‘s Evanna Lynch, aka Luna Lovegood, to get a shot (What? They can dye their hair!). Plus, there’s reportedly a rival Snow White production in the works at Relativity Media entitled The Brothers Grimm: Snow White so perhaps plenty of apple-cheeked actresses might be in luck.
So PopWatchers, who do you think would be best in the role of Snow White?
