The actress has a cute voice, but her Asgardian "accent" was the worst of the cast, I thought, and I found it distracting. She sounded like a very contemporary and perky American woman. Hope she got more voice work for Dark World.

As for Portman's Jane--eh. I am probably in the minority, but I think Portman is a strong actress with the right material (Black Swan, The Professional), but a mediocre actress with weak material (Star Wars, Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium, Thor the first). Some performers can do well enough even with poor parts, but I don't think Portman can. I'm hoping they've given her a stronger role in Dark World, but considering she has her mouth open (shock, fear, confusion, they all look the same) in every scene or image I've seen so far, I'm doubtful.

I think I would have preferred Jaimie playing Thor's main love interest, but with her cast as a spunky, contemporary Jane!
This. Hell, I hope they kill her off lol
