"Actually, I feel that if GL hadn't cut out some of Nat's scenes from the movie, she would have gotten a more positive response overall. Those deleted scenes really could have shown other parts of her character, and given her more depth and chances to prove her acting ability. However, because the scenes were deleted, most of her performance was during the romance scenes, which people didn't seem to be very fond of in the first place." Ociredor, could you elaborate on this? I think that indeed this was the case and that important Padme scenes which really helped her character in the novel were cut from teh film. But, if it's not too much to ask, which scenes do you mean?
