I agree!  But I think it's because, seemingly unlike most people, 
I've always thought she's pretty in that 
very-easy-to-imagine-her-being-a-total-bitch kind of way.

I've come up with another possibility for Howl, but I'm afraid few 
people are going to know him.  The BBC did a new dramatization of 
Lorna Doone, and I think the actor who played John Ridd, Richard 
Coyle, would be good.  It helped (me, at any rate) that he had long 
hair for the part.  He also managed to languish a bit when required, 
without looking like a total twerp.  (I liked this as a Lorna Doone 
adaptation, also, fwiw.)
