I think Cate Blanchet would work well.

Cate Blanchet could be a good choice but she's so Victorian looking, but maybe that's just me. :)

She does alternate between creepy and nice very well, at least she did in LotR. It would be interesting to see her take on the role.

I have been wondering why some people think that the WW is the LGK. Lewis never says this, all there is to suggest this is the owls think "she is one of the same crew" which just means she is a witch.

aragorn2, the most recent discussion for the WW vs LOTGK is in this thread which is still open.

The topic here is for who should play the LOTGK. :)

What? Kate Winslet is too old to play LotGK but Cate Blanchett isnt? Um, Kate Winslet is younger.

Although i'm pretty much only mentioning the following actress due to her frequent green-dressed appearances in another popular fantasy adaptation (the BBC Merlin TV Series) i still figured she was probably worth a mention, and am a bit surprised she hasn't been brought up before, if only for the aforementioned Green Dress + Fantasy reasons.

Ooh, interesting choice, Icarus! Katie does have a look that can work for the LoTGK. Sadly, I've not been impressed with her acting so far on BBC Merlin. She's beautiful, though-- without a doubt!

I'm not sure if she's been mentioned yet, but I like how Bryce Dallas Howard looks. She's my favorite actress, but she's alright. I've actually only seen her in Spiderman 3. I'm bummed that she was in Twilight, though. Maybe that will shame her name forever, because (apparently) she was horrible in it.

Oh, that's so weird. I was just thinking Cate Blanchett should play her. So I came on here to suggest her, and found that she had already been suggested! =))
It looks like I'm not the only one who thinks she would be amazing in that role!
Cate Blanchett for the win! :D

I think she might just be a little too old, maybe. I hope not.

A concern about Cate Blanchett is that she doesn't have red hair. I would prefer for LotGK to have red hair, but so far the filmmakers have put acting quality as a priority over the character's appearance. I think I'd rather have better acting than her appearance, and in that case, Cate Blanchett fits the bill.

Then again, that wouldn't be too big of an issue since we have hair dye. :p

She's arleady played in Lord of the Rings, and using Cate Blanchett will cause people to think Narnia is ripping off LotR again.

Also, Cate is a bit too old.

Also, she'll be acting in The Hobbit during the time the Silver Chair movie would start production.

Yes this is true and I hate that Narnia is already compared to LotR. Hmm, maybe they'll just get a lesser known/unknown actress to play Lady of teh Green Kirtle.

Anyone thought of Romala Garai? Image
I could easily see her capturing Rilian with her winning smile, but then have her become a terrible witch. She's a terrific actress, and if Michael Apted were to continue to direct the series, she would already be well acquainted with the crew.
