Runners Up to play Serene
Tao Okamoto (The Wolverine)
Katie Chang (The Bling Ring, A Birder's Guide to Everything)
My Choice for Serene
Fan Bingbing (X-Men: First Class, Skiptrace)
Serene goes on to play a big role in the Hunters of the Dark books, with a unique character arc that sees her in different roles when it comes to the hunters, so the actress that plays her needs to be versatile and convincing. Model Tao Okamoto was amazing in The Wolverine, but it was her first role, so I would like someone a little more seasoned in this role. Katie Chang, again, has only been in a few movies, although the acclaim she earned for her part in The Bling Ring makes her a strong contestant. In the end, however, I would go with Fan Bingbing, who has a pretty amazing career for one so young, in music and in film. While she's a new face to American audiences, she brings a wealth of experience and she has this beautiful otherworldly quality about her that's perfect for Serene.
