Who could play the Yusupovs in a movie?

  ::) Crazy idea, just running though my head. If there was to a movie made of the Yussupovs, who could play the stunning Zeneida?

Who was the girl you posted awhile back, the Latin American star? She was lovely! She could play young Zenaida, and possibly be aged. I always thought Kirstie Alley (if her diet succeeds a little more) would make an excellent Zenaida, especially older, like the time Nikolai was shot up to the Rasputin stuff and the revolution and exile. I think Kirstie looks a bit like her in the face, and some of her past acting jobs (like Virgilia Hazard in North and South) make me think she could handle the emotional parts well.

Hi Annie

I knew you would the first to respond.

I thought about Kristie Ally if she lost some weight, she could be the older Zenaida. I would have to go back and find links to show the pictures of the girl I thought would make a lovely young Zenaida.

I'm so terrible, I don't even know how to post pictures.

What about Juliette Binoche? She smiles with closed lips just like Zenaida on several photos. And she is pretty good actress.

Now we need just some good manuscripts for a movie, since there has been picked already plenty of actors on other threads too. ;D

I would LOVE to write a manuscript! It's been my dream since I was a teenager to write and produce a miniseries (it would be too long for a movie, maybe a series of movies) about the last years of Imperial Russia! I would include the Yussoupovs as in depth characters too.

I think we have brought this up before.

It would have to be a mini series because the Yussupov's have so much history and close connections with the Imperial Family that it would be impossible to cram into 2 hours.

Oh, I hope to one day see the mini series come true.

I thought you wanted her to play Ella ???

IMO, she's too old to play either. What is she now, 70? Ella died at age 54, and the actress would have to believably play her from youth to death (which is why I picked Jodie Foster in the other thread) Zenaida did live to be 78, but the movie would cover her younger years up until the revolution when she was in her 50's, so I don't think a woman that age could do this. Besides, she's too blonde, Zenaida was known for her raven haired beauty.

Most venerable & adored Grand Duke  :-* , you are in danger of turning this & the 'Who would play Ella' thread into one of your own galleries of beauties like Ludwig of Bavaria....
You are not really Ludwig of Bavaria, are you???  :o
