    I am a little surprised that Florence took the role, because Irulan isn't much of a character in the first Dune novel. She doesn't really become more important until Messiah and Children of Dune.

    So she is banking on the possibility of future work? Ridiculous.

    Well yes, it's just that based on her prior comments about roles she's rejected Irulan seems like one she WOULDN'T want. Unless she's hoping for the future Irulan stories.

    Or her role has been expanded in the film. Wouldn't be the first time. The miniseries did the same.

    Or she liked the first movie and the price was right.

    Or maybe she's a big fan of the novel?

    Or she wanted to work with Villeneuve?

    Or simply just wanted the chance to work with Chalamet again?

    Or she went to a psychic who told her to take the role or she'd get hemrrhoids

    She said that she tried auditioning for other Hollywood stuff earlier and most of them were just "One-Note Love Interest" or "Lose weight and you'll do better" which made her stick to British stuff more until better projects came along like Little Women and Midsommar and stuff.

    So Dune could have been pitched differently.

    Villeneuve doesn't strike me as the type who would reject an actress who doesn't have supermodel measurements. Pugh is a very good and young actress, i.e. she fits the role age wise and could be available for potential sequels where she gets more to do. I have no clue how she chooses roles but i know that other actors/actresses do tend to mix their roles to build a steady career, i.e. they do a high profile paycheck movie ( could be a bullshit Michael Bay production for all they care), then do a smaller movie with a better story which is more up their alley and so on - one part business and one part passion and it seems to have worked for many actors, especially in the super popular Marvel movies that attract A list level talent or help launch some into A list category that has so far worked perfectly well for Pugh.

    That's pretty messed up when an actress of Pugh's athletic build is told to lose weight.

    Maybe, either they increased her role like the 2000 Mini did or rewrote the role. Just have to wait and see.

    Welcome to Hollywood - listen to any actress, especially the young ones, and they all have the same story to tell about visual appearance.

    Heck, Kate Winslet gave a talk about how when she was at Drama School she was outright told that she'd only ever get "Fat Girl" parts.
