Fancast: Mary Kate Wiles as MJ Watson
Am I the only one who thinks this would be seriously perfect?
Watching Mary Kate as Lydia on The Lizzie Bennet Diaries has really made me a fan of hers, and the more I think about it, the more I think she’d be the perfect MJ.
Like MJ, Lydia is a shallow, silly party girl on the surface, but Mary Kate is absolutely brilliant at making her nuanced and lovable, even in scenes where Lydia is acting recklessly or is hard to sympathize with. She’s just fantastically talented, and seems to be a really intelligent actress who takes the time to understand her characters deeply as well (which is vital for someone playing a role as iconic as Mary Jane Watson).
Plus, she looks the part near-perfectly, and she’s adorable.
What do you guys think?
