Actresses/Models to play BG RMs in MY Dune movies!

Postby halcyo » 14 Feb 2010 16:50

Totally random, but I was watchin' a bunch of movies this past week and I saw a few actresses that instantly made me think 'Bene Gesserit Reverend Mothers'.... with a current 'girlfriend' thrown into the mix just for shits and giggles...

Claire Forlani:

This girl Amber I've been seein' a bit of. She's a model/aspiring actress :roll: and this picture makes me think she might pull it off!:

And the ULTIMATE Reverend Mother- one that can mix beauty with a feeling of stature, power, intelligence and cold calculation-

Cate Blanchett (We can use the the sexy chick next to her for somethin' too :mrgreen: ):

Amber is very lovely.

btw, nice idea for a thread. Come on guys and gals, I know we have our own thoughts as to how a "BG" might look....

Where in the hell did Lynch come up with the idea of having them all be hideous and bald!? Seems like a movie wouldn't miss any chance to have beautiful women every chance it gets. I mean clearly many of the BG are very 'well bred', ya know?

I'm not attracted to her, but she might be able to play one of the bitchy RMs....

Tricia Helfer is welcome to play whoever she wants as long as she makes it on my screen. ;)

I think Tricia Helfer is definitely worthy to play a RM, but too 'waifish' to play Odrade. Aren't Odrade and Lucilla described as really bodacious, curvier women?

Actually, IIRC Odrade is described as "willowy" somewhere. And not very young, too.

You're right. Just got started reading Heretics again today. Odrade and Lucilla look very similar, except one is skinny and one is curvier it seems :mrgreen: ...
