Name: Elise Gatien
Best Known For: Role as Mia Dearden / Speedy in Smallville. She was the disciple of Green Arrow, I say was because we haven't seen her in a lot of episodes. BRING HER BACK O.o
My Comment: When I saw her act in Smallville the first thing I thought was that she would be a great Katniss. The only problem? Her and Katniss' skin color don't match, but if Robert Downey Jr. could do the part of Kirk Lazarus in Tropic Thunder then everything is possible! Makeup is a wonderful thing. She is a good actress, isn't that what matters at the end?
OH and check THIS out, apparently a cartoon photo of Katniss appears in the UK cover of The Hunger Games...
Don't they look alike?!
Description of Katniss Everdeen:
"Katniss is sixteen years old (later described seventeen in "Catching Fire" and "Mockingjay") and is described as having long, black hair, usually in a braid, gray eyes, and olive skin. These traits are common in the Seam, the lower class miners of District 12. She is small in stature and light for her age, being one of the smallest tributes in her games, but due to her outdoor life, she is strong for her size. She also may have a Southern accent. (When Suzanne Collins reads Mockingjay's first chapter, she talks in a Southern accent when Katniss is talking or narrating). Katniss is not very image conscious, for example her hairy legs, as pointed out by Venia, one of her stylists. In the first book, her hearing in one ear was destroyed because of an explosion caused in the arena, but it was fixed in the Capitol in the end, as were all of her other major and more minor injuries including the erasing of any scars. Before entering the arena the first time, Katniss had many minor scrapes and cuts, and her outward appearance was very much imperfect. However, after she won, they were repaired by the Capitol doctors. Most notable about her appearance and demeanor however was the image she unconsciously projected, as noted by her co-tribute Peeta."
"Collins has described Katniss as being an independent survivalist, lethal, but good at thinking outside the box. Katniss's past hardships (her father's death, mother's depression, and near starvation) have made her a natural survivor, and she will endure hardship and hard work to preserve her own life and the life of her family."
I have to re read this series, soon...She is perfect, please tell me you think so too!
