Yes, unless she's more famous for her skills than her family or her beauty.
It would also accentuate the fact that Tally is a nobody at the start of the trilogy, so she should be a new face, but by Extras she is the most famous person in the world, and if the film is a success the actress will start showing up a little more.

That would be good, yes.
I like that...she will, quite litterally, become Tally in real life. If it does well. We all saw what happened to the Golden Compass...

I had the displeasure of watching it while I was still reading the book. So I was doubally confused. Then I realized the series ended with Will and Lyra getting Darwinist in the grass, and I just let it slide.

His Dark Materials? Yes. It's not quite steampunk, but it's still a good read. Just ignore whatever religous reffs they make and focus instead on the hotness of the main characters (for you, as a girl, the broody knife-weilding skills of William Perry), and you'll do fine.

Nice. Although I find religious references interesting.

It's three books, so it should be a good long read.
