If Dame Wendy Hiller is still alive she'd make a good Old Sophie. We also
need to remember Sophie and sisters are teenagers, so it's no use thinking
about actresses in their late 20s. I checked out the Anne McCaffrey casting
polls a while ago and it was disappointing to see how many had simply put in
a high-profile actress without any regard as to whether she looked (or was
aged) anywhere near the character.
