Was anyone else disappointed in the casting of Carrie Anne Moss as Claudia Wolf?
Claudia was my favourite villain from "Silent Hill 3", she was icily beautiful and had a magnificence about her which made you have respect for the charachter, but Moss didn't do anything for me. I found Moss to be quite weak in the role, and not suited to the part of a villain. Don't get me wrong, i have nothing against her, and she's been good in her other roles (I liked her a lot in "The Matrix) and i'm not saying she's a particularly bad actress, she just wasn't suited to Claudia and didn't play the part well. I understand she's meant to be slightly different in the film to the game, and that's fine, i just wasn't happy with the performance given.
If it were up to me, i would have chosen Tilda Swinton, because
*She's more experienced in acting
*She's shown us how well she does in the role of an antagonist
*She looks more like Claudia.
Swinton showed me what i saw in Claudia when i watched "The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe" in that she was icily beautiful, magnificent and what you would go looking for in the role of a villain. I enjoy seeing villains whom we love to hate, but Moss didn't make me love to hate Claudia or particularly admire her, i felt her performance was very flat.
Please don't leave nasty or abusive comments, i'm not here to hurt anyone, i just wonder if anyone else agrees that Moss wasn't the best choice for Claudia. Who do you think could have done the role better?
