If Psylocke was ever given a large role in a film who would you want to play her?
Who should play her?
If Kelly Hu was a bit younger I think she would work well. Psylocke works best I think looking a bit full, like in the strong and athletic way, I think Hu pulls off the physical, facial look and has the acting ability and martial arts background. Maggie Q I think would be okay too, but I think she looks too tiny to be a good Betsy.
" @SC: N'ah... we need some British blood. An English Psylocke! ;) "
Oh, well definitely Kate Beckinsale then. In fact sometimes when i pick up and read Uncanny X-Men with Fraction and Land, back in the Sisterhood arc when we last saw British Betsy? Looked almost identical to Kate Beckinsale? Strange that huh? Its almost as if Psylocke was Kate Beckinsale was Psylocke. Weird.
I think Rhona Mitra has the jawbone of a boxer. And she's practically a less attractive Beckinsale. If it was between the two on who would play British Betts, hands down Kate. As for Asian Betsy... Out of all the suggestions so far, I like Maggie Q the best. Look at this:
I'd like to see both the British and the Asian Psylocke in a movie or a live-action TV-series. The body switch would make an interesting subplot.
I don't have any suggestions, but I'd like some Asian British actress to play her, or at least an actress of any nationality with a convincing British accent. It makes me sad that they rarely stay true to the characters' accents in the movies. To me, having characters of various nationalities, cultures, religions, and ethnicities is a part of the appeal of the franchise, so having almost all of them all talk in standard American accent in the films is kind of boring.
Really? That's your contribution to this topic and the person who you think would best personify Psylocke. Olivia Munn? What has she done that greatly contributes to the entertainment industry other than looking good? YOU LOSE SIR GOOD DAY!- Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka.
Grace Park is a stick so she is out, so is Olivia Munn for being a half azn with no skillz. Kelly hu is out because she was all ready lady deathstrike. all the other female azn action stars are too old or just look wrong. best bet is to find a actress in japan with the body, accent, acting for it.
i think the actress who plays British Psylocke should look similar to the actress who plays asian Psylocke, why? the comics have always portrayed them to be similar looking lol, depending on the artist, I like the choices Devon Aoki and Elodi Yung as Asian Psylocke b/c they have that Euro/Asian look about them...although i am not familiar with either of them as actresses so i can't judge how they'd be on screen
as for british Psylocke I'd def pick Kate Beckinsale hands down
the way the actress looks is a key part but not the main reason she should be cast
