Emilie de Ravin


  1. Maggie Grace, The Fog, 2004.      Before they split for Hawaii – and TV’s Lost – Maggie beat Emilie to the hero’s main squeeze. And that hero was nearly their Hawaii co-star, Matthew Fox.  
  2. Melanie Lynskey, Four Saints, 2011.      Before shooting got underway in Calgary, three of the four saints (WW1 nurses in Flanders) were changed. That’s how the Kiwi Lynskey became the Scottish Mairi Chisholm.

  3. Scarlett Johansson,  Hitchcock, 2012.    Thirty-two years after his death, Alfred Hitchcock’s back in business! With two films headlined by UK actors (Anthony Hopkins, Toby Jones) in bad impressions and fat suits. This is the first before the cameras  – Hopkins making Psycho. And telling Scarlett’s  Janet Leigh: “You can call me Hitch. Hold the cock.”  As Janet Leigh was just two years older than the dowdier Vera Miles (played by Jessica Biel), most actresses were up for either role…

  4. Jessic Biel,  Hitchcock, 2012.    .. the candidates included  Dianna Agron, Camilla Belle, Abbie Cornish, Emilie de Ravin, Natalie Dormer, Sarah Gadon, Ashley Greene, Kate Mara, Brit Marling, Gwyneth Paltrow, Chloe Sevigny, Mary Elizabeth Winstead., Reese Witherspoon, Evan Rachel Wood… plus  Jessica Biel (chosen for Vera Miles)  and January Jones, who was also up for the role of Tippi Hedren in the Hitch-making-The Birds TV  drama, The Girl, seen first in October 2012.  (Timothy Spall was booked as her Hitchcock, finally portrayed by Toby Jones opposite Sienna Miller).
