When holding auditions there will usually be descriptions noting what the character should look like, for example blonde hair, frail frame, not too tall etc.
Film In Alienall of the characters are known by their last names and were written as unisex. Ultimately Ripley and Lambert were cast with female actors.
Hardly any lines were rewritten, and it's since been repeatedly hailed as a masterpiece of female character writing. Morgan Freeman wound up getting the part because the director "couldn't see anyone else as Red" after his audition. Which had the added effect of making the line - "Why do they call you 'Red'?
In the novella, the character is only named Red.
It's changed in the film to "Ellis Redding," to explain the name. The Lord of the Rings: The producers intended to cast only British actors as the Hobbits as Tolkien had imagined the Shire as a form of England but American Elijah Wood sent in a strong audition tape and was cast as Frodo.
A marginal case, seeing as Wood speaks The Queen's Latin with very few slips. Gollum was meant to be an animatronic, but Andy Serkis 's performance impressed the filmmakers so much that they decided to use CGI and motion capture trope-naming Serkis Folkplus having him physically acting on the set.
In the original cartoon, the nation has tan skin, dark hair and blue eyesserving as a Fantasy Counterpart Culture for Inuits. The film cast Caucasian actors for the lead roles and Asians or Inuits as the silent extras-in-distress.
The film's very poor reception and in particular critiques of the very wooden acting from the leads did not bear out the filmmaker's excuse for the Race Lift.
Ben in Night of the Living Dead was not written to be black. At the time, it was quite unusual for a black man to get a lead film role.
Romero has always maintained that he only cast Duane Jones because he gave the best audition, not to make a point or be controversial.
The films frequently cast actors this way. Horace Slughorn, Dolores Umbridge and Gilderoy Lockhart are all played by actors who don't quite match the physical description of their book counterparts for instance, Slughorn is meant to be short and stout with a walrus mustache, but Jim Broadbent is clean-shaven and over six feetbut who captured their attitudes perfectly.
Umbridge is an even more noticeable case, as her appearance is constantly described as toadlike in the books, and the illustrations bear it out. Imelda Staunton doesn't look anything like this, and they did nothing to make her even remotely unpleasant looking.
However, this actually works in the films' favor, due to the heightened contrast between her sweet, grandmotherly appearance and her brutal, secret-police style rule over the school and infuriating behavior. Alan Rickman as Severus Snape bears mention here; in the books, Snape is in his 30s, while Rickman was 55 when he made Philosopher's Stone.
Regardless of the Dawson Castingthere are few who would disagree that Rickman totally owns the role. Rowling herself clued Rickman in on what she had planned for Snape's back story to help his performance in the films; she did not do the same for the rest of the cast.
For the filmKenneth Branagh chose to cast Idris Elba. Fan controversy over his choice led to the page quote. His performance was then raved about.
As MovieBob put it: Valkyrie is a white blonde in the comics, but in this movie, she is portrayed by Tessa Thompsonwho is black. Director Taika Waititi said he was aware that some of the more hardcore fans might take umbrage with her casting, but insisted that she gave the strongest audition of all the actresses who read for the part.
The costume designer even nearly gave Valkyrie blonde hair out of respect that the fans would react negatively to the casting - but chose to leave it dark to avert another trope. Daniel Craig got a bit of controversy when he was cast as James Bond in Casino Royale because he looked very different from the past Bonds, being derisively referred to as "James Blond.
He may have invoked the trope since he refused to dye his hair black for the role.🔥Citing and more! Add citations directly into your paper, Check for unintentional plagiarism and check for writing mistakes. Antananarivo, Madagascar U.S.
