    It has to be at least in the ballpark of plausibility, yes. Acting and presence, of course, are a big deal. But you do actually have to take into account what the actors playing the parents look like.

    A few stats:
    Natalie Portman - 5'3"
    Hayden Christiansen - 6'2"
    Harrison Ford - 6'1" (peak height before a lot of back surgery after Temple of Doom), age 70 (character age started out 4-5 years younger than him at 29--he was 33 when filming started in March 1976)
    Carrie Fisher - 5'1", age 56 (character age started out the same age as her at 19)
    Mark Hamill - 5'7", age 61 (character age started out 5 years younger than him at 19--he was 24 during filming)

    Mark is likely going to get dwarfed by any male actor chosen to play Han and Leia's male offspring (LOL) in any Jedi training sequences (particularly if they're aiming to not make the male offspring look like a puny weakling next to Harrison--see Shia). As I mentioned repeatedly in the Mara Jade casting discussion, age and height are factors (don't go too young or too statuesque). Obviously, the only people that are going to be shorter than Carrie are little people actors.

    Nina Dobrev is 5'6" and 23, by the way.

    Height shouldn't matter, Tom Cruise has always managed well enough despite being short.
    I didn't realise Carrie was so small, I knew Portman was because it is often mentioned even by her.

    Camera shots are good for dealing with height issues, Prowse was a foot taller than Hamill in the OT but when Luke & Vader were together there didn't seem as though there was a huge height difference.
    Same with Fisher & Ford.

    Acting ability should be first & foremost, looks and height and whatever can be altered if they are a serious issue with whoever they choose for the role. That is what makeup and special effects are for.

    Bingo!

    If we were official casting directors then NO. But we're here discussing possibilities so I think for now it's only logical to atleast start in that direction. It's not like we're saying "Oh I love Scarlet Johannson so I really hope she's in it." Because that wouldn't deserve a discussion. There's something about Nina though...

    Which would just add her to the list of other people who have done both big characters and background characters in the series is all.

    Yeah being a background character is not really worth noting.

    I never liked Nina Dobrev, she always rubbed me the wrong way. And this is coming from a Vampire Diaries fan.

    I would actually want them to cast a relative unknown rather than a high profile actor.


    If the character is in her 20s, I would go with either:


    Shailene Woodley

    or maybe Alison Brie

    ^ Always liked KB.

    Since we're just throwing actresses out now, Hayley Atwell from Captain America would make a fine Corelllian Senator.

    She kind of looks late 30s or 40s with work done in this pic.

    I agree! She is cute . I like her eyes , they are very full of life and playful. And her smile is genuine and warm. She is cute. But I don't think she has much of a career as an actress.

    I don't think she has experience as an actress is what I meant. I think Star Wars could have a pretty Asian woman for a change.

    Nah, from the photos I see I think she's fake Asian/ half American. I mean a all Asian girl. Not this trendy video game stuff where guys look like women and Asians look completely white. Star Wars needs more Asians.

    I wonder if the Beiber fan girl would be into me...it's worth a shot.
