Korra Fancast: Team Avatar:
Korra: Q’orianka Kilcher
Bolin: John Cho
Mako: Takeshi Kaneshiro
Asami: Lee Young Ae
This is a fancasting DONE RIGHT!
Take notes, fans on tumblr obsessed with sleuthing out actors who fit our beloved characters looks IRL.
My only criticism: I think Mako’s actor should be more attractive and have sharper features, like maybe his chin…
Same goes for Asami too, actually…I see her sharp, pointed chin as one of her defining features, and this actress has a fairly rounded face.
Other than that, PERFECT! Anyone of Fire Nation, Earth Kingdom, or Air Nomad descent should be fancast as someone of Asian descent IRL. And Water Tribe characters should be fan cast as someone with Native American roots, ideally, or alternately, and I think this may work nearly as well, a POC with similar skin tone and facial structure to the character and the ethnicity Water Tribe culture reflects and is meant to emulate…
OH MY GOD I SAW Q’ORIANKA AND THAT EARNED AN INSTANT REBLOG OMFG I LOVE HERRRRRRRRRRR
