    I think Patty Duke is a great actress and would
    make a fine addition to the Batman Begins cast.
    In my opinion, Duke has shown that she is more
    than capable enough to play roles which require
    a certain degree of fortitude.

    I can honestly think of no better woman to
    portray Leslie Thompkins.

    Can you? :marv:



    Someone falls to pieces sleeping all alone
    Someone kills the pain
    Spinning in the silence
    She finally drifts away
    Someone gets excited in a chapel yard
    And catches a bouquet
    Another lays a dozen white roses on a grave

    And to be yourself is all that you can do
    Be yourself .. is all that you can do

    Judi Dench, if she could do an American accent.

    Hmm .. Dench comes off a little cold, but I've only seen her perform in a movie or two.

    I really hope that the character of Dr. Leslie Thompkins is in the sequels.I would really like to see that and she also a very important charcater in the Batman Mythos.Some actresses I believe could play Dr. Leslie Thompkins are Meryl Streep, Helen Mirren, and some of the ones mentioned above Patty Duke, Vannessa Redgrave, or Maggie Smith.

    You could be right, but she was the best person I could think of.

    I'd like to see Thompkins interact with a young Bruce Wayne (role reprised by Augustus Jeremiah Lewis) in flashback scenes.
    For that reason, a very old actress would not be preferable.
    Patty Duke is old enough, but not what I would consider an elderly woman. In addition, Duke has previously suffered from mental depression and probably understands pain more than any of the above mentioned
    actresses.
    Still, Maggie Smith and Vanessa Redgrave are great choices. Redgrave
    ages very well, kinda like a female Sean Connery or Anthony Hopkins.

    See those photos comparing Julie Christie with Leslie Thompkins:

    Leslie in the comics:

    Julie Christie in some recent films:

    Not only she has the wise and clever look to look like a doctor, she is enough strong to be bruce wayne's mentor, and enough sense of humour to get a good cheministry with Caine's alfred( in fact, they are great friends in real life.). Also , she is atracctive enough for her age. She is perfect for leslie thompkins.

    I thought Ellen Burstyn loked exactly like Leslie in The Fountain. She's pulling a rather odd face in this pic but it's the only one I could find:
