Re: The X-force Casting Thread
Selene's main power is absorbing the lifeforce of others in order to maintain her vitality. When she overexerts herself she ages.
So the best way to show Selene and her power is to have her played by a younger actress, over exert herself during battle or whatever, have her age (via computers and make-up) and then have her absorb someone's lifeforce to become young again.
That means you need a younger actress to play her.
Yes, Tao was 27, and Hugh was a very fit 44. But Wolverine is a couple hundred year old dude, and he can hook up with almost anyone, as long as they are of legal age, like Mariko.
Is there a double standard here? Maybe, but it is what it is...
