Maika Monroe

  1. Rosa Salazar, Alita: Battle Angel, 2016.    The four possibles for Yukito Kishiro’s manga heroine were Marylander Salazar, Santa Barbara’s Maika Monroe, Bella Thorne (106 screen credits by 2021) and the very tall singer, Zendaya.  Producer James Cameron had been trying to trying to direct a film about the cyborg since 1995 but  little things kept getting in the way. Like Titanic and the Avatars… “The guy’s just so freakin’ smart,” said Robert Rodriguez, directing his first movie since Spy Kids in 2000.  “Getting to learn from someone like that was the greatest internship ever.”
