Human WSD: Who would play the rabbits?
« on: February 23, 2019, 03:11:24 AM »
The post about what the characters' ages would be if they were human got me thinking: What would they look like as humans? Who could play them as humans? When we were little, me and my sister used to wish for a human AU adaptation, haha.

hmm that's an interesting thought.
I'm not good with famous actors, but I'd imagine Fiver being played by Elijah wood because he's short and I like some of the characters he plays (mostly as a voice actor).

Frodo. Yesssss.

I don't know why, but I think Cowslip would look good as Claude Rains...
