Indeed. If you're shining it doesn't matter how small your role is.

Excellent in the couple of scenes she had. And very beautiful too.

^ Zack is great at finding talented unknowns. She feels like a gimmick for emotional investment with characters that have no story, but she WORKS. When you see her scared and afraid, you feel it. Her interaction with Perry shows that Fishburn has a soft side, if only on camera :P

So we know that she's Jenny Jurwich, and Deborah Snyder even said she didn't know where the Olsen rumor came from...

But in this video at the premiere, the actress even seems to think she's playing Jenny Olsen. That, along with the scan from that promo book that called her "Jenny Olsen" makes this weird... do you guys think they changed the name at the last minute?

She has really soulful and expressive big brown eyes.

They might have changed the name or just decided against using it altogether. Based on this interview, though, I think it's everyone else who was pretty much convinced that she portrays a female version of Jimmy Olsen in the film; and Rebecca just sort of went along with it.

Seems they went back and forth with the name during production.

After seeing the movie and Jenny's so-called "Olsen" name popping up prior to the movie's release, I'd like to remain optimistic that Jimmy will still make his debut in the sequel. You can't have no Jimmy Olsen period!! Guess there wouldn't have been anything for Jimmy to do in MoS.

Nice pickup on that "Jurwich" name tag too!

I have no clue what to think anymore. One minute she's Jenny and then Jenny Olsen and now Jenny Jurwich. I'm going with Deborah on this one and say she isn't an Olsen, but I like her enough to say I hope she appears in the sequels.

I believe initially she may have been Olsen as a nod but then they backed out because they just decided to introduce Jimmy in a sequel. So if Jenny was either a female version of Jimmy or a relative, they just decided to start fresh and have Jimmy appear later on. I'm glad they did because he is a major part of the Superman mythos.

Jenny pretty much played a "damsel in distress" role for Perry White to work with and to just use the Olsen name for that character wasn't a good idea so I'm glad they changed their minds.

The thing is though, her name badge that she used in the film had her last name spelled out on it and it wasn't Olsen at all; and yet when they present her a year later through official guides and such, they say that she's Jenny Olsen so they couldn't have changed their minds about it after they finished filming.

Aw, gee, now I really confuse...Maybe it was an impulsive idea they had for half-a-second but then luckily thought better of it? Or there was miscommunication about what ideas they decided to go with between publishers etc.?

In any case, after all this kerfuffle, they better use Jimmy!

For what it is worth, it appears she is actually Jenny Jurwich.

She looks like she doesn't have a clue what the question means so moves past it as quickly as possible. I don't think she was ever an Olsen.

I didn't think from watching the movie that there was anything suggesting she was Jenny Olsen. I'm sure it never crossed the minds of the general audience that she was supposed to be either. She just seemed like a worker at the Daily Planet. Surely there can't only be one photographer there.

It's perfectly easy still to introduce a proper Jimmy in the next movie. I hope they do this.

Jimmy can bring the humor. I say bring on the real Jimmy! But she was cute, and using such an iconic character in a throwaway role would be off.

I don't think if I had not heard rumors that she was meant to be Jenny Olsen before hand I would have noticed her even as much as I did. She is a slightly Jimmyesque, low person in the structure character. I have to decided I am going to lobby for her to be a love interest for Batman.

With Batman coming in the next film, I can see why they booted Jimmy for Jenny. Otherwise they would have too many males among major characters.
