    Shohreh was so amazing on 24, I was kind of surprised she didn't get a Best Supporting Actress Emmy nomination (same for Famke on Nip/Tuck's final episode). Her voice has such a rich tone.

    While I'm happy that she's in X3, it's kind of unfortunate that an actress of Shohreh's calibre can't really find leading roles. She's a visible minority and a woman over 40, double marks of death for female actresses in Hollywood. Oh well, she's going to rock in X3...

    I think she's an extremely talented and classy actress. Its a shame she didn't win the Oscar, but its such an achievement that she even got nominated.

    For those of you that live in London, UK you might be interested to know that Shohreh is going to appear for a couple of dates in the London West End production of 'Who's Life is it Anyway?', preivously done by Kim Cattrall.

    She looks really creepy in the trailer. Not someone I'd particularly trust with a huge needle!

    So anyway, do you guys think that Rao will have a part to the movie besides trying to give Angel the cure at Worthington Labs? I'd think that she surely would, but I haven't really seen or heard much about her part.

    Think Simon Kinberg made a mistake on the quote from the first post.

    'One Oscar Win'???? The Cast of X-Men have two oscar wins....

    Halle Berry for Best Actress

    and

    Anna Paquin for Best Supporting Actress

    She was mind blowing on 24. That all I've seen of her, sadly.

    Personally i think they look completely different. She fits into the role nicely but the look nothing alike. The film version looks like a bit of a fiesty vixen, while the comcid book version looks a bit dowdy. Plus Rao is Indian and Shohreh is Iranian.

    no, i think she fits the film role version. but she doesn't look like the comic book version at all. Thats not a bad thing. Shohreh doesn't look indian at all, she looks middle eastern.

    Er, the likeness between the two is uncanny. :confused:

    They even have the exact same facial expression in both pictures...

    NO THEY DON'T!!!

    Rao's face is slightly angrey and all sullen and her lips are frowning with no lipstick.

    While Shohreh is preened and lips are perfectly straight, and not the slightest look of anger in her face.

    Rao has a more angry look, but the shape of their eyebrows is the same. They both share similar lips, and the same nose.

    eyebrow - plucking and eyeliner, lips - collagen and lipstick, nose - rhinoplasty (and she has had it done).

    Don't get me wrong love the fact that she's in the film and think she's gonna kick arse. Just don't think she looks like the comicbook Rao, Shohreh looks better.

    I'm guessing her scenes other then this one with angel may well be with Beast and Leech. I wonder if she's gonna be all motherly protective of Leech like Rao was with Tildie in Astonishing X-Men. Or is she going to be a cold mutant hating *****.
