Well guys, I remember we used to talk about topics like this in the old forum, so I decided to start one. And, as before, feel free to share your opinions and choices. Maybe once some studio will screw them self up and actualy read suggestions of us fans here Who knows...?
So... It happend few nights back, when I was relax with a cold beer after a hard day, that I’ve ran into some pictures on Instagram, of one astonishing beauty named Barbie (Barbara) Blank. It did not take long to realize that my eyes rest on a former WWE diva Kelly Kelly. I was stunned. Although I have been following pro wrestling since the attitude era, until sometime in 2009, I have never (despite my innate weakness for blondes) paid particular attention to Kelly Kelly. Once you’ve seen Amazonian like the late Chyna, or Beth Phoenix performing, you see rest of the girls as fragile porcelain figurines that has nothing to do in the ring (’cept the eye candy role), but that's not important here. What mattered was that, at those moments, an image of Atali from Howard's "The Frost Giant’s Daughter” burst into my head. Each of us as director would have a different choice for the role, but mine would definitely be her:
- Before him, swaying like a sapling in the wind, stood a woman. Her body was like ivory to his dazed gaze, and save for a light veil of gossamer, she was naked as the day. Her slender bare feet were whiter than the snow they spurned. She laughed down at the bewildered warrior. Her laughter was sweeter than the rippling of silvery fountains, and poisonous with cruel mockery.
- His gaze went again to her unruly locks, which at first glance he had thought to be red. Now he saw that they were neither red nor yellow but a glorious compound of both colors. He gazed spell-bound. Her hair was like elfin-gold; the sun struck it so dazzlingly that he could scarcely bear to look upon it. Her eyes were likewise neither wholly blue nor wholly grey, but of shifting colors and dancing lights and clouds of colors he could not define. Her full red lips smiled, and from her slender feet to the blinding crown of her billowy hair, her ivory body was as perfect as the dream of a god.
- "My village is further than you can walk, Conan of Cimmeria," she laughed. Spreading her arms wide, she swayed before him, her golden head lolling sensuously, her scintillant eyes half shadowed beneath their long silken lashes. "Am I not beautiful, oh man?"
Wow... Just wow... She's perfect! 😍 I believe many will disagree with me on the choice, but as far as physical appearance is concerned, Kelly is an extremely beautiful woman, who, at 32, looks better than many younger girls in the business or even in Hollywood - one would said that she's matured as a good wine, getting better with age. She is very athletic, agile and fast, and as she has never stopped with fitness, her form and shape of the body are as ordered for the role. Even her eyes are a vague shade between gray and blue. Her complexion, of course, should be paler, but it's nothing a month or two without sunbathing can't fix. And her face structure is interesting at the very least. A face fit for a goddes of the North. Finally, with a little touch of movie magic, that would certainly have to apply to Atali's hair, one can help on that as well. Movie makeup exist for such stuff. As far as her acting goes, we haven't had a chance to see her on film so far, so I don't know how much she could show in a small but still complex role of Atali, but, neither that isnt a problem in the hands of a skilled director who would guide her through the role. I would not expect performance in the style of Cate Blanchett, but I think that this beauty would be a pleasant surprise for all of us.
