Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003)
Character: The Bride
Reason: her mix of coldness (in planning revenge) and fury (in fighting) are the eternal division between our human rationality and bestial nature.
Character: Albert Nobbs
Reason: it'd be a great challenge trying to give my femininity away and turn my body and gestures into a such neuter character.
Character: Elizabeth I
Reason: period movies are fascinating... the costumes, the set. Besides, Elizabeth was an amazing woman, she reigned in a historical time of chaos with extraordinary will and intelligence.
Black Swan (2010)
Character: Nina Sayers
Reason: it's the role of a lifetime. It has everything: craziness, sensuality, competition, obsession. And because it requires a lot of hard discipline.
Character: Clementine Kruczynski
Character: a little for trying her looks... :) Then for the story and especially for what she means to her man.
Reason: for telling the story of this brilliant woman who was victim of religious madness and bigotry, and who paid the price for thinking in an age when women were only supposed to raise children and shut up.
Moulin Rouge! (2001)
Reason: to look that gorgeous (ok, Nicole Kidman looks gorgeous on her own...) and to experience the musical genre with dancing, singing and acting at the same time.
Charlie's Angels (2000)
Character: Dylan Sanders
Reason: because this movie looks so fun to shoot. The girls jump, fight, wear bizarre costumes and wigs. I'd choose Dylan because, among all them, seems to be the funniest one.
The Artist (2011)
Character: Peppy Miller
Reason: if I was a contemporary actress, how could I not love to be immersed in the world of Silent Movies, try that different way of acting, communicate without words, sing and dance like Ginger Rogers, feel like a real diva?
Game of Thrones (2011)
Character: Cersei Lannister
Reason: I couldn't decide between her and Sansa but eventually I chose her. Cersei is the baddest badass, the b*tchest b*tch ever. How could a role be more awesome?
Reason: I like strong characters and who's stronger than her? You really need to have the guts for ruling in a warriors - in a vikings! - world.
The X Files (1993)
Character: Dana Scully
Reason: the X Files was the show loved by an entire generation, it's normal for an actress (though hypothetical) willing to be a part of it. And the platonic love between Scully and Mulder was one of the best ever told.
The Great (2020)
Reason: gorgeous costumes, splendid scenic design. But also one of the sassiest characters of all time, who undergoes a huge transformation over the series. In addition, I love the sharp and witty script and the odd antagonism between Catherine and Peter.
