I haven't seen her in any movies so I don't know how she'll be as Leah. Leah has such a big role in BD, so if they make that movie, I hope she's up to the challenge. Her looks are perfect though, I want to hear her voice as I always pictured Leah with a non feminine voice, more tom-boyish.

She looks too old.
That's my opinion.

She definitely wasn't what I was expecting, though I had never really gotten a clear image of her in my mind. However, I think Julia Jones will play the part well and I wish the best of luck to her.

She looks decent enough to play Leah, I expected someone who looked a bit younger too, but she's not that old. Hopefully she'll play the character nicely.

I agree that she looks too old. She doesn't look very Leah-ish to me at all, but maybe it will change some once they chop off her hair. If she protrays her well though, I will be happy.

I don't think she looks too old. I think she looks pretty perfect. Close to how I pictured her.

Okay, so Julia Jones is older than Leah's character...so is Rob older than Edward (especially when they do BD!). Leah is supposed to be older than Bella anyway and I also thought of her as coming across as older than her age because of what she's been through. So I don't think Julia's age is an issue.

I love that Julia's been talking in interviews about really getting into the books and the advantages of having all the characterisation & background in the books to back up the script. I think she's going to do a great job as Leah.

I thought her hair would be shorter as Leah though...not that that was Julia's decision!

I agree I think she is a little to old, but I think she will do a pretty good job regardless. She looks kinda tough :lol:

Why did in BD did I imagine Leah to be blonde? I know that im not the only one to do this, but it was totally weird as I knew she had black hair! She looks a little old, but she will be good.
