Juno Temple

  1. Evana Lynch, Harry Potter and The Order of The Phoenix, 2007.      Potterverse legend insists that 15,000 girls were seen for Luna Lovegood.  The Irish Lynch was #9 in the final 30 (including Scarlett Byrne, Saoirse Ronan and Juno Temple). When Potter creator JK Rowling saw the Lynch test and declared: “She is Luna.” And so she was.  Just as Byrne was called back to be Pansy Parkinson in The Half-Blood Prince and the two-part Deathly Hallows big finish; the Londoner then wed Cooper Hefner, son of the Playboy creator, Hugh M Hefner, and changed her credit to Scarlett Hefner.
  2. Brie Larson, 21 Jump Street, 2011.     Up for the female lead in the movie version of Johnny Depp’s 1987-1991 TV series, UK director Julien Temple’s daughter did better by winning a role in The Dark Knight Rises, instead, as her 23rd movie in ten years. Larson was known as Toni Collette’s rebellious daughter in United States of Tara, TV, 2009-12. Temple and Larson were also up for…
  3. Emma Roberts, Adult World, 2011.      A few years back, the Hawaii-born auteur Scott Coffey had Julia Roberts toying with one of his scripts. Her neice didn’t toy… just jumped at the poet wannabe working in an adult book shop.
  4. Eleanor Tomlinson, Jack The Giant Killer, 2012.      Director Julien Temple’s daughter lost the kidnapped Princess Isabelle. So did rocker Phil Collins’ daughter, Lily. And Australian Adelaide Kane.
  5. Olivia Lovibond, A Single Shot, 2012.     Juno was lucky to lose… Sam Rockwell was the single mainstay of this way-over-the-top thriller. The novelist could not blame the scripter – same fella! And he should remain anonymous.
  6. Dakota Johnson, Fifty Shades of Grey, 2014.    Juno had been director Sam Taylor-Johnson;’s #1 choice  for Anastasia in the film of  the soft-bore S& novels.  Juno was not interested  – nothing to do with the required scenes of  nakedness.  “Nudity has never been a huge drama in my life. When I hear people say, ‘Oh she’s got her tits out,’ I’m like, ‘So? How was the actual performance?’. I’m more afraid to take off my clothes in real life than I am in front of a camera!”
