Katherine Winnick

  1. Eliza Dushku, Nurses, TV, 2007.   The (still) busy Canadian martial artist  (Criminal Minds, Law & Order and all three  CSIs) was given  the lead role of Eve – nursing in  a hospital run by her father! She was later replaced by Dushku.  Dad remained the same: Gregory Harrison. By 2013-2019, Winnick was rulking he Vikingsas Lagertha, “maybe the most exciting feminist character on TV,” said Entertainment Weekly. 
  2. Brie Larson, Captain Marvel, 2018.   It was a long wait but Marvel’s 21st feature was a Black Panther-style triumph since opening on International Women’s Day, 2019.  LA legends insist that Carol Danvers was nearly played by Emily Blunt, Natalie Dormer, Rebecca Ferguson, Bryce Dallas Howard, wrestler Roda Rousey, Katee Sackoff, the Handmaids Tale’s Yvonne Strahovski, Charlize Theron (when Angelina Jolie was invited to direct), Olivia Wilde or The Vikings’Katheryn Winnick. Then, Brie Larson made a 2015 film called Roomand won an award called Oscar.  That settled it for the Marvel chief called Kevin Feige. He lovesOscar winners, booking 18 for Marvel roles so far, such as Cate Blanchett, Michael Douglas, Anthony Hopkins, Natalie Portman  – and Tilda Swinton, who’s part of The Avengers: Endgame  with the Marvelous Brie.
