Sasha Pieterse

  1. Kate Mara, Fantastic Four, 2014.       Alison from Pretty Little Liars, 2010-2017, auditioned for Susan Storm. Too young, said director Josh Trank. She was 18. He wasn’t pleased with the Fox choice of Mara either and made life hell for her. Major flop! Hollywood Reporter critic Todd McCarthy called it “a 100-minute trailer for a movie that never happens.”Marvel icon Stan Lee saw it coming and refused his usual seal-of-approval cameo In Lee’s  comics, Storm and Ben Grimm/The Thing were married. So were Mara and Jamie Bell (who played Grimm) in 2017.
  2. Elizabeth Olsen, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, 2014.    Lindsay Lohan and Saoirse Ronan were also for Wanda Maximoff, aka Scarlet Witch, for the Avengers’ second summit meeting.
  3. Sophie Turner, X-Men: Apocalypse, 2016.   “A big monster of a movie,” declared propducer-director Bryan Singer. “A kinda conclusion of six X-Men films, yet a potential rebirth of younger, newer characters.” To succeed Famke Janssen’s Jean Grey, a mutant scared of her super-abilities, Singer mused over Lily Collins, Elle Fanning, Chloë Grace Mortez, Saoirse Ronan, Hallee Steinfeld and Hollywood’s hottest newcomers:  South Africa’s blonde Sasha Pieterse, Star Wars find Daisy Ridley and The Wolf of Wall Street’s Margot Robbie. He voted Turner, because of how she handled the dark side of her Game of Thrones character, Sansa Star … and despite Sophie having blue eyes and Janssen, dark brown.
