I'll consider recommending her for my mini-series project once I'm finished ;-)

Yes! She does look like she could play a Romanov...either Tatiana or (in my opinion) Maria.

Georgie Henley for a Romanov anyone? Anastasia?

Oh, I love Georgie Henley! Perfect as Anastasia!

I agree! She would be perfect for Anastasia!

I actually see more of Marie in her than Anastasia. She's Anastasia's age (at the end), 17, but if you were starting this project now it would probably take a good two years at least before it hit the big screen. By then she would be exactly Marie's age! Although a 19 year old can easily enough play a 17 year old as well.

Of course there is no way you're ever going to get the casting perfect.

Exactly edubs31, you will never get a casting perfect. I mean, maybe she could play Anastasia towards the end of her life? Georgie does have those huge blue eyes though, like Marie...

On tumblr I saw Jennifer Lawrence suggested for Maria, but I think she has more of a resemblance to Olga.

I agree with you Isabelle! She does have a resemlance to Olga...

Hmmm....just out of curiousity, what sort of ages would we want for the actresses of OTMA and the actor for Alexei?

For Alexei, I'd go for 11ish, but an eleven year old who could be mature enough to act older than he was. Same with the girls, but for more respectable ages. For example, Maria at 18/17 and Anastasia 15/16. For the older girls, I don't think it would matter so much but make up and hair would have to be considered carefully (as well as clothes etc.)

I think she'd be too old (possibly for a few scenes in exile), but Holliday Grainger looks a lot like Masha!  http://s3.amazonaws.com/img.goldderby.com/ck/images/holliday%20grainger%20bio.jpg

Not quite as pretty, but yes I see the resemblance. If she played Marie I think most would consider it good casting.

Yeah, she does look a little like Maria, not 100% but she does for sure!

Or how about this Finnish actress Krista Kosonen as Maria?

If we were casting a Romanov movie in 1980 with a largely British cast like Nicholas and Alexandra, I have a suggestion for the part of Maria:

Sarah Sutton.  Good choice, Tatiana.
