For the past few months we've heard a fairly good amount of rumors about a possible female lead in Episode 7. The 4 actresses from the above picture are the ones that were mentioned the most. Which one is your favorite?
(from top left in clockwise order)
Ksenia Solo - only rumored for now. If you missed those rumors read here.
Chloe Grace Moretz - on several occasions expressed a great desire to be in the movie. Denied that she has auditioned for the movie. For the Chloe rumors read here.
Saoirse Ronan - the only one from the list who confirmed that she has read for a role in Episode 7. For the Ronan story go here.
Rachel Hurd-Wood - she was rumored together with Alex Pettyfer. Later a Lucasfilm employee asked the fans about their opinion on that rumor. If you missed those, read here.
Also according to the official character description revealed with one of the casting calls, they are looking for:
Late-teen female, independent, good sense of humour, fit.
And a second young female, also late teens, tough, smart and fit.
So it won't be a surprise if 2 of the above actresses are cast for the new movies.
That's why you can select more than one option in this poll.
So which one is your favorite?
10 days after the poll it's time to make some conclusions:
From 1151 votes.
1. Chloe Grace Moretz - 45%
2. Ksenia Solo - 21%
3. Saoirse Ronan - 18.5%
4. Rachel Hurd-Wood - 10.5%
5. None - 5%
So although Chloe Grace Moretz is by far the winner of the poll we have to bear in mind that someone posted this poll on one of Chloe's fan sites. That's why she got plenty of votes from there. Also Chloe is considered to be the most famous name from the list.
Popularity - that's how I explain the weak performance by Hurd - Wood (the only name from the list which Lucasfilm asked the fans about).
I'm pleasantly surprised by Ksenia Solo's performance. Although she is also not that popular she managed to take second place very closely followed by Ronan (the only name from the list who confirmed to have auditioned for a role in Episode 7).
So Chloe is definitely the fans' favourite but Ksenia Solo is looking very strong too.
