    Anyone else like her and would have liked her to have a bigger role? Her shape changing could have been done well. She was also pretty hot and stood out from alot of the randoms.

    I was pretty hot for Zam when AOTC came out.Bounty hunters are cool, even if they rarely catch anyone!

    She should of had more Screen Time. I think she would be an intresting charecter for the tv series. She was popular.

    As you can tell, I really liked her character. But I also liked the fact that she appeared in a short, sharp burst. She retains a bit of mystery that way and doesn't become boring through overuse.

    Wasn't this said about Boba Fett in 1980?

    Is Zam Wessel going to be the next Boba Fett?

    At least Leanna Walsmann is pretty [face_love]

    Oh if lucas ever re dose the prequels i think he should add her into some sceens in TPM.

    Heres a list of sceens she should be added to.

    Placeing a bet on anakin to win the race
    Being at bonta eve, like mabey behind jabba
    Telling jabba she wants her money (this would give zam and jabba more screen time)

    and thats it, nothing to big but to give the character more personality.

    I thought Zam's character served it's purpose in AOTC...didn't really need much more screen time.

    I did get to meet Leeanna Walsman, who played Zam, at CIII. She was very nice. In many ways.

    Oh god no.....

    There is a little background in the game Star Wars Bounty Hunter. It gives you some info about how jango and zam meet up for the first time

    Yeah, I think you're right jangoisadrunk. Boba, like Zam, was cooler when he was used sparingly and shrouded in mystery . I think it would've been cool if Boba didn't appear in the PT.

    I loved Zam Wessel because of her insane piloting skills.

    I wonder what happens to her body? do they just leave her on the street to die? Maybe she didnt die at all and transformed into another lifeform.

    No I think Zam is pretty much dead.
    Shes no Boba Fett.....;)

    I'm sure the jedi just called in the local coruscant police force or something and they had the body put in a morgue

    Zam is really cool. Her role was good to, I think just the right amount of time but eh' more of her would have been fine by me.

    One of my favorite shots of AotC is when Zam is prepping her gun. I dunno with all the downtown lights the shots looked really pretty and cool.

    Ya, she could've survived and been in Ep III, one of the seperatists Anakin kills. Maybe,,,The only thing I didn't like about her was that whole changeling thing. What was the point?

    ^ True I didn't understand that whole alien thing either. Maybe it was just a way for GL to show a new type of alien. Or it could have been that killing a "woman" in such overt and a clearly visible manner was too much for a PG movie.

    She was preety stupid tho. She could of just changed into someone at the bar and blended in, she could of lived. But she was to stupid and cocky and she thought she could kill obi wan.

    Hmmmm, sounds like Zam Wessel is AOTC's version of Aurra Sing.

    "She was preety stupid tho. She could of just changed into someone at the bar and blended in, she could of lived. But she was to stupid and cocky and she thought she could kill obi wan."

    She would have still been wearing the same clothes though so they probably would have still spotted her.

    EDIT:

    "True I didn't understand that whole alien thing either. Maybe it was just a way for GL to show a new type of alien. Or it could have been that killing a "woman" in such overt and a clearly visible manner was too much for a PG movie."

    While it was probably just a way for GL to show a new alien (I heard the changling idea was though of and implimented in post production) another more artistic reason I've read other people say that this was to further one of the main themes of the PT which is that things aren't as they seem. Zam looks like a beautiful woman but she is really an ugly lizard creature. Much like how Palpatine seems to be a nice smiling man (we know how that ends) or how the Old Republic looks all nice from the outside it was festering underneath.
