Okay, so maybe Heinke Makatsch just wasn't severe enough for Lanfear. She'd make an okay Aran'gar, though. I gotta go
with the crowd and choose Ms. Bellucci. This is probably most Lanfear-ish pic I could find that was...erm...decent.
Let's see, musclular but compact: check. Blond? Well, not quite but close. Able to play evil well? Oh, yes, definitely.
Add a scar and square beard and you have our man Sammy.
There's very little I can say that the above pic doesn't say just as clearly. She's a spider-lookin' thang, ain't she?
She plays evil well, considering she apparently is in real life as well.
Look at the picture. That's all I'm gonna say.
He's the right age, not young, not old. He also has an unremarkable face, but he can play evil. This is a hard-to-define
There's no denying that Oldman plays EVIL better than anyone in Hollywood, and as the major villain of the first
three books, he's got plenty of chances to flex his evil muscles. Seeing his face in fire in the latest Harry Potter
movie convinced me the rest of the way.
This pic looks deliciously curvasceous and sexy. Red hair is there, as is the face. I think that if you replace the white
top with one of Graendal's see-through numbers, you wouldn't even need make-up.
Something about a guy who glowers a lot made me think of Mr. Csokas. Csokas has made a career out of playing bad guys,
and there's a reason. He looks mean. Yes, he looks like Demandred to me.
Since we're given little to go on concerning what Mesaana looks like, I decided to go with the 13 Forsaken Days of Christmas
interpretation, plus Emily has big blue eyes. This pic (and some others I found but couldn't upload) make her look evil.
I wanted her for Lanfear, but she matches this part better. She's beautiful and I am convinced that she could play evil.
Now I can already hear all the yelling "No, no, no! He's not dark enough! He's not handsome enough!" Well, friends, calm
down a moment and let me explain. First of all, he is handsome in a hard sort of way. I chose the above photo because
I imagine him making that face when he and Rand are fighting in Tel'aran'rhiod. Second, Rahvin has dark hair and
that can be accomplished with a wig. Unlike some, I don't think that Rahvin is supposed to be black. He is, however, very
tall and buff, which Mr. Kulich definitely is.
The best-looking of all the Forsaken, plus the guy who mopes about playing music...well, any handsome British actor could
do this role, but Rupert just for whatever reason looks the part to me. I get a little annoyed when I see people suggesting
older actors or men who aren't all that good-looking since it clearly says in the books that Asmo is just approaching his
middle-years and looks handsome.
Be'lal isn't around for very long, so I guess he could be played by anybody. I like Derek Jacobi as an actor, and the
above pic should look Be'lal-ish to anyone.
Remove the Judge Dredd makeup and you have a guy who can play all the Myrdraal. He looks scary! He is typically
cast in bad-guy henchman roles, and there's a good reason.
