i know, but he looks late twenties here i reckon. and if he was almost forty when he died and harry always said he looked older than he was, he'd probs look in his mid forties. i agree that thewlis was a little too old though. not so much in the third film (everything was so right in the third film, i wish they'd kept that director) but by OOTP he looked well above fifty. thats too old for remus.
yeah i know, as much as i love oldman, rickman and thewlis they were all too old. especially rickman. timothy spall looked too old as well, come to think of it. and lily and james (cant remember the actors), although i really liked lily all the way through the films, i think shes so gentle and beautiful. anyway, the age thing still wasnt nearly as much of a stuff-up as lily's brown eyes in the princes tale.
no that part was understandable, dans allergic to contacts. they did try to give him green eyes but his eyes swelled up and everything apparently. the important thing was always that harry had the same colour eyes as lily, and the older lily had blue eyes like dan so thats fine. but then they went and cast young lily and basically pissed all over snapes entire storyline. she had a close-up, ffs!! i find it insulting that they obviously didnt care enough to find a blue-eyed child. its not that hard to find a blue-eyed redhead. its not like she needed to be a top actress or anything. *mutters angrily for another few hours...* sorry, i tend to rant about stuff like this :L
