    Princess Leia is widely assumed to have a leadership role in the New Republic in Episode VII but what of Mon Mothma, the first President of the New Republic. The actress Caroline Blakiston is still active and appears healthy. I'd think she'd be up for reprising the role. Perhaps Mon Mothma should be long retired but influential as an advisor to Princess Leia and the new Senate.

    What do you think? Should she come back for a bit role or should the character be mentioned in passing (double entendre)?

    A cameo would be nice. especially because Blakiston actually wanted to cameo in ROTS, but she never even got a response to her letter.

    Doubtful the big old geezer three will have time to swing by the galactic cemetery. Perhaps MM will get a quick mention or background shot if she's a statue in front of the new republic.

    Who would play Mothma in the ST? Blakiston, O'Reilly or some new look-alike actress?
    I do not think Blakiston will return since she is a bit too old now.

    I could get behind a zombie Mon Mothma appearance :p

    In all serious though she should be long dead by the time the ST takes place so a statue or hologram appearance only if she does appear.

    The character was in her 50's in RotJ. Ifthe ST is 40 years later, the character would be in her 90's. Not impossible, but not likely. Especially if Leia is supposed to be a major part of the Republic Government.

    Would work even better if Disney happens to release an extended cut of RotS with all the Mon Mothma scenes that were originally cut reincluded. I think it would be cool to see Mon Mothma played by the original actress for a cameo.

    Was she? Damn, could have fooled me! If CB would like a cameo, that would be cool...

    Yeah, I don't see it happening she's way too old now. Granted, I'm happy that the big(no pun intended) 3 are reprising their roles, but if they keep reprising roles from the original films there won't be any room left to tell a new story.

    How is she too old if she is still alive and wants to do it? She is as many years older now as the Big Three. Would be great to see her in the ST. Would mostly likely only be a cameo, but none the less.

    These people deserve to be acknowleged if you ask me, and it looks great for the series and continuity.

    Yeah, I doubt she would make an apperance due to when it will most likely be set, but a mention of her further contributions to the New Republic (or whatever they want to call it) would be nice. Even just a visual, like a statue or holo.

    The actress would only be 30ish years older than when she did ROTJ. It's not impossible. But yeah, if she asked for a cameo in RotS and didn't even get a response to her letter, it doesn't bode well.

    I would not mind a cameo. However, I just saw her pics and she was not immediately recognizable. She may be a bit too old for the part. Yet, if her appearance will advance the plot, then I am for it.

    You are right. The biggest reason why this may in fact be a bad idea is that she doesn't look like the Mon Mothma from ROTJ. *shrug* It was just a thought.

    Oh, in case it isn't clear. The person on the right played Mon Mothma in ROTJ.

    I think with the right wig and makeup she could definitely regain that appearance and air of respect/integrity/authority etc.

    This would be a good character to follow for a couple of episodes in a television show. Bit more background info, the stressof running a rebellion and raising your kids. That kind of thing.

    2 potential story arcs for tv:

    1) upon returning to her home world of Chandrilla after the destruction of the empire, mon monthma hopes for some quiet family time. But a former imperial who apparently renounced the empire is now an influential politician looking to discredit mon. Mon will have to turn to her old friends admiral ackbar and Crix madine to uncover the truth.

    2) the stresses of war and rebellion push two unlikely people into a relationship. Mon mothma never expected to fall for admiral ackbar but true love cannot be denied. Will the new republic accept a fish head and a woman shacking up together. It might take some friendly advice from wedge Antilles to sort this one out.

    i wouldn't mind seeing her in a cameo, but i doubt they want to populate the new trilogy with too many returning characters.

    Everyone knows that if Ackbar ever hooked up with any female human it would be Winter.

    Why does it seem like everyone here thinks that Mon Mothma would not have aged like everyone else?

    Again, no need to show every single character ever mentioned or shown.
    Wouldn't mind if she appeared, but would not even notice if she didn't.

    There's a few people who'd like to see Mon Mothma as a tyrant- since it would support their view of her behaviour in the EU.

    The residents of SD.net spring to mind.
