Facebook group: Cast UK actress as Claire!

I just noticed that someone has started a Facebook group, Cast UK Actress as Claire Fraser, presumably in reaction to the recent rumors about American actress Katherine Heigl being considered for the role of Claire in the OUTLANDER movie.

"Description: We believe the part of Claire Fraser in the forthcoming film of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander should be played be a UK actress."

(Yes, I joined this group. Even if ultimately it makes no difference.)

Please feel free to pass this along to anyone you know on Facebook who might be interested.

Oh, and speaking of Facebook, I saw the new movie, "The Social Network", today, and I really enjoyed it. I would highly recommend it to Facebook members, but it's also very enjoyable for people who don't participate in social-networking sites at all. (Or so says my brother, who wouldn't be caught dead on FB, Twitter, or similar sites, but emailed me last night with an enthusiastic recommendation after seeing this movie.)

I agree, it should be a British actress who plays Claire. My first choice has always been Rachel Weisz, but I know she is not the right age. I recently saw Emily Blunt in, "The Young Victoria" and thought she might make a good Claire. Meryle Streep and others were very impressed with her acting in "The Devil Wears Prada". I prefer a mini-series over a movie though.

I agree with you, but if Katherine Heigl will be able internalize the character Claire, then I think it's okay.

I haven't watched The Social Network but I read that it was quite a good movie though the owner of Facebook denies that the movie was a true story.
