Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

While reading Raise the Dawn, I had an idea for whom to cast as Gell Kamemor, the Romulan Praetor. Before, I'd been imagining her as an elderly matron, maybe a Judi Dench type, but the book described her as relatively younger, middle-aged but still with black hair. And something about the way she was described in a particular scene, the way she reacted to an upsetting situation with calm and poise, reminded me very much of Olivia Williams's performance as Adele DeWitt in Dollhouse. And Williams's shorter hairstyle in season 2 of that series did look a bit Romulan. Maybe she's a bit young for the part, but otherwise I think she's a good choice.

That's a good thought. I have to admit that for myself I heard Salome Jens voice when I read much of Kamemor's dialogue. The cadences of some of the longer passages brought to mind the combination of steel and sympathy that she used as the "female" changeling when talking to Odo.

Hmm, I don't know Olivia Williams, but I do know Judi Dench; I could see her as Kamemor (I've been having trouble casting her), although I think I could see her better as Bacco. Hmm, yeah: Judi Dench with an American, ideally a New York/New England-ish, accent. Okay, I have my Bacco!

And yeah, after having looked her up, and watched her on YouTube, Olivia Williams would make a good Kamemor, although I do think she's a little too young. (And I personally would need the accent to be a little gentler to fit the limited notions I do have about Kamemor.)

Anyone have any ideas for casting Anxo Rogeiro?

I think I had someone in mind while reading Plagues of Night, but I'm not sure I remember who it was. I think it was probably Esai Morales, since he had a recurring role on Fairly Legal during the time when I read the book.

Benjamin Bratt (Clear and Present Danger) as Rogeiro, perhaps?
And Rachel Weisz as Kamemor (though Olivia Williams isn't so bad, either).
All of the appearing TNG, DS9, and TOS actors would come back, respectfully.
Who could play Jefferson Blackmer?

No offense, but I've hated her in the Romulan roles she's played. (Actually in the "First Contact" [episode, not movie] too.) I mean, I can definitely see her as Kamemor, and of course my reaction is totally subjective and idiosyncratic, but still. One of my least favorite Trek actors/actresses there.

Aw man, no need to apologize! I should be the one apologizing for reacting so vehemently! I am sorry.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Whilst we're on the subject of Kamemor, I imagined Vanessa Regrave in the role. This was after seeing her in Ralph Fiennes' Coriolanus in which we saw her in some kind of position of power and influence as the mother of the title character. Also in terms of age, I think she fits the look of the character.

This is a really good call, actually. I hadn't imagined her that way, but when you mention it, I can totally see it.
