Who would you cast for Natalie Portman's mother?

1305 Views 15 Replies 12 Participants Last post by  AndreSanThomas
When I write my books, I usually "cast" someone in the role.  I'm thinking about a new book for my Realm of Janos series.  Any ideas who you would cast as Natalie Portman's mother?  It doesn't necessarily have to be someone who is 50-60 now, because I'd be telling their story when they were more in their 20's.

Any thoughts?

Kiera Knightley. They're practically clones.
What she said.
And of course, Keira Knightley played Natalie Portman's bodyguard/doubleganger in The Phantom Menace.
Monica Belluci! She has the beauty and grace, with more of an old world feel.
I would cast Helen Mirren for all the roles ever.

Interestingly enough Helen Mirren is the mother of Natalie Portman's guy...
Or, if you're visualizing a character with a sterner, more matronly countenance: Judy Davis or Lena Headley Headey (I'm a cactushead...)
Sigourney Weaver...and she would be the appropiate "mom" age as well.

Sofia Loren, except she may be too old now.
Thanks everyone!  You've given me some great ideas I hadn't considered.  ;D
Lena Headey (Headley?)

I was going to say Anna Mouglalis, too, but she's only in her 30s.  She'd be more like a sister.
And the great thing about mythical casting is that you can scroll them up or down in age as needed.  Love it!
