    I agree that it might be extreme to attempt to exactly replicate Eaton’s mixed background, but even extending the call to Pacific Islander actresses would make for a larger than enough field, especially for actresses who could use the career boost and I’m sure would be just as amazing as the rest of the big names. They can at least make an attempt rather than just casting a white or Latina woman who looks similar.

    Shannyn Sossamon has been a widely-predicted choice, and I think she’d be awesome. I mean when you type her name into Google, “Yellowjackets” is one of the first suggested searches.

    Vulture has an interesting article about who should be cast as the adult versions of the characters (they foreshadowed Ambrose’s casting).

    Although Sarah Michelle Gellar playing a reincarnated Jackie seems too bizarre lol.

    reincarnated Jackie

    Literally still hoping this happens. 😂 Gone too soon. We need Ella Purnell to stay on the show as long as possible!

    I do think she might err too comedic but Rachel House (who does a lot of stuff with Taika Waititi, but for whom this would still be reasonably substantive) is a Maori actress who is probably age appropriate and a solid visual match

    She’s so funny but I think Madeleine Sami would be a better Kiwi pick and she has Indo-Fijian ancestry (TIL she is married to Ladyhawke!).

    Soooo
    This gets better right? I watched the pilot and i liked it alright but it isn’t something i would be drawn to if it’s just that.

    8 months later and I’m really glad I gave it another chance.
    The pilot is still the weaker episode for me, i think the normal teen high school stuff is boring for me, and the adult versions don’t do much in that episode.
    But from episode 2 onwards this show really creates a unique atmosphere that is so hard not to like, the teens in the woods are so good.

    I don’t like the supernatural approach so far (I’m on episode 8) and i hope they don’t go that way, finishing today.

    I do agree the bits on the island are the weakest aspects of the writing (although that scenes towards the end of Flight of the Bumblebee and Sic Transit Gloria Mundi were devastating) but I think what really made them interesting to me was how lived in the performances of the younger ensemble were. A lot of the time I can find series with these Lord of the Flies-esque overtones to be frivolous either because the actors playing the younger characters are very clearly a full decade older than the characters they’re playing or the actions they take and the backstories around them are so unconvincing but here I did really feel drawn into these younger actors and their performances because I felt like I could understand them really well from my own experiences when I was around that age? Especially with Savoy Brown and Thatcher’s characters and their respective performances.

    Really loved this show and hope that the award noms get more people talking about it and catching up on it – I feel like a lot of people missed the boat on it since it wasn’t on Netflix. Loved Lynskey and Lewis in this. Ricci was a little over the top for me.

    Elijah Wood has been casted as Walter, a dedicated Citizen Detective who will challenge present-day Misty (Emmy nominee Christina Ricci) in ways that she won’t see coming.

    I know Succession is a strong frontrunner but I hope Yellowjackets surprises, it’s the most deserving of the nominees.

    The way all of these shows were cast by the same two people…
