Default If Prisoner Was Remade Today...

Hi all!

So here's a rather interesting little question. If Prisoner: Cell Block H was remade today, who would it star as who? Who would play Bea? Vinegar Tits? Doreen? And of course, The Freak?

Share you thoughts here!

Paris Hilton as Marilyn Mason.

Lindsay Lohan as one of the young characters, maybe Roz Coulson.

I genuinely cannot think of anyone who could play any of these characters. They were the type of characters that you either get right with a certain actress, or don't get right at all. I cannot imagine anyone else playing the freak...that's Maggie Kirkpatrick's role...maybe someone else could portray a similarly good villain...but they could not portray the freak as Kirkpatrick did. Same goes for any other dominant role I feel...and Pixie...nobody else could portray her in the same way.

It is more than good script writing that makes a good character, and the actor's persona/presence has so much to do with it...there are characters you're either supposed to love or hate, such as the can only love a character like her if it is portrayed accurately. Other characters that you are also supposed to love to hate, are people such as Kay...can't remember her surname...well, I never even loved to hate her because I didn't really think it was acted that well...although Sonia Stevens was superb...I loved to hate her, then loved her, then hated her....

There are story line changes I would make if it were possible to time travel...but alas, not.
