I love Julie Walters, but I think she's a little old to play Sibyl. Also, she's not fat - she was wearing a fat suit for the Harry Potter movies. Sibyl needs to be Considerably plus-size!

You know, i never pictured Sybil as being really really fat, more, bigger. more amazoness with a little extra around the waist, then cheery baker.

I've just finished G!G! and Sybil seems to have started off really fat, then evolved into more of a strapping Amazonian type a the series went on. Nobby describes her as a "big fat party", and a "great big biddy". Miranda's probably right physically (ie strapping, not fat), and suitably posh, she just might be a bit young.

I don't know about that. She's 40 now and that seems to me about the right age for Sybil. I must say that after seeing her in Call The Midwife, she seemed like a good choice for Sybil too. :)

When I was reading Sybil for the first time, I pictured the actress Camryn Manheim, who is 51 but looks much younger.

She looks good for the part.

Miranda is 40? Bloody hell, being posh has it's advantages (well, obviously)

fun thing, my own mother looks half her age and happens to be 50 herself, I win :snooty: heheh, as for Sybils actress, maybe a mix between Camryn and Miranda? Sybil to me is someone that has the odd wrinkle here and there so miranda is a bit too young. As for Vimes's actor, he would need to be an actor that's a bit lanky and can play cynical, Hugh Laurie plays cynical in the show House and he looks the part too :) .
Well, you know what they say. The past is a foreign country - - With an outdated military and huge oil reserves!
