Elizabeth Debicki

  1. Katherine Watson, Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, 2015.   Sam Waterston’s London-born daughter won the role of the future wife of JK Rowling’s new hero – Eddie Redmayne as  wizard-magizoologist Newton Artemis Fido ‘Newt’ Scamanderin the first of a trilogy (in five parts… and 54 years before Harry Potter was born).  She is called Tina, short, insists JKR, for Porpentina. Debicki and Kate Upton were  also in the frame.
  2. Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Gemini Man, 2018.  Sorry to say but The Girl  – Danny, by name, and switched from Debicki and Tatiana Maslany to MEW – was the least important part of the exercise, what with Will Smith playing both lead roles – helped by  amazing youthifcation effects for his younger self.  Over the years from 1997, Clint Eastwood, Mel Gibson, Jon  Voight,  etc, had made de-aged tests. Harrison Ford always denied being contacted for the role(s).  MEW hadd the key line: “I know why he’s as good as you.  He is you!”
