YES! I really like so many of the choices you have said. I think Emily Blunt would be good. I love the idea of Cate Blanchett.

Emma Stone as The White Witch.

Wouldn’t that be an outrageous choice?

I’ve seen her in most films as playing a cute girl, but I’ve seen one or two films she’s in where she’s not cute. And more intimidating. And amoral. And well, sporting a perfect British accent. I think if she were interested in the role, she could play a younger White Witch than we’ve seen, like, ever. A young tyrant who kills her people rather than give up the thrown. A person who throws away what little humanity she has in order to remain young forever. And in between MN and LWW, becomes less human and more of a monster. It would be interesting to say the least if Emma Stone actually got the role.

I actually think this is a great idea. I think she would be really great!

Emily Van Camp could also be a good choice. Or Emily Blunt!

If we went with someone younger, what would you all think of Elizabeth Olsen? Or Yael Grobglas?


I don't think I've seen Yael Grobglas in anything, so I can't attest to her acting, but I could see her portraying Jadis in a physical sense if she looked a little less youthful. I know she's thirty-one, but she looks too... sweet and innocent maybe? haha

I know Cate Blanchett has the ability, but my fear is her history as Galadriel. People will probably start playing the "Narnia trying to be Lord of the Rings" tune again XD

Now, Elizabeth Olsen? YES. Unfortunately, I'm afraid of scheduling conflicts :/ she does have a show for Disney Plus coming up and I assume it will monopolize a lot of her time in the near future. But I can totally see her playing the cold, heartless, yet beautiful and manipulative Jadis.

Has anyone mentioned Keira Knightley? I feel like that was brought up somewhere, but I can't remember and I don't see it on this thread XD

Edit: my dad just dropped a name and I was instantly on board. Anne Hathaway.

@Monty Jose - Yael Grobglass is on the show Jane The Virgin, spoiler alert! ---->
Yael actually plays one of the evil characters for most of the show! It's actually quite complicated, she keeps bouncing between being evil and redeeming herself in the current seasons. In fact, she plays two characters, they are twins (the show itself is quite ridiculous but I love it!). The twin is almost always evil but ridiculous. They are so different, she is a very good actress. I would be very careful about looking up clips of the show though, as it can be a bit scandalous at times.


Ack, good catch with Cate Blanchett, I didn't even think about that. Yeah, kind of ruins it for me. Eek.

When I think of Anne Hathaway, I think of her in the Alice In Wonderland movies and it's hard to take her seriously now! :(

I think Tilda Swinton be good. She was one of the best actresses in the series after all!

Now that Netflix has announced they are being more budget conscious, I’d say it’s safe to assume the casting for Jadis will be a relatively unknown actress. Probably someone who has more television history as opposed to film.

Perhaps they’ll be thinking of someone like Adrianne Palicki (Bobbi Morse in Agents of SHIELD, Commander Kelly Grayson in The Orville). I’m not saying she’s my top choice, only that someone along the same vein is more likely as opposed to Daisy Ridley or Emily Blunt.
