Emma Roberts AKA Nancy Drew


Emma Roberts as Nancy Drew during filming--source TMZ--reddish hair but darker than a strawberry blonde. George may be played by actress Kay Panabaker.

YUCK! Does not look like Nancy Drew. Please Warner Brothers "Lighten UP" a little!!

Hey, remember Pamela Sue Martin (70s TV) and Tracy Ryan (90s TV)? Seems the TV/Movie folks seem to go for brunette more than blonde or titian/strawberry blonde hair--both of which Nancy has had. I thought Maggie Lawson who played a blonde Nancy Drew looked most like Nancy Drew in the 2002 TV movie pilot.

I thought that Bonita Granville resembled Nancy Drew the most. I really dislike the outfits. Emma looks older but there is still something missing in her.

I really, really, really don't want her playing Nancy Drew. She doesn't look like Nancy Drew at all. When I found out she'd be playing Nancy Drew I nearly fell off my seat. I really like the Nancy Drew books and games and I think other people would do a much better job as Nancy Drew than she would. And the people playing her co-stars are not even the people I want to fill in the shoes of Ned and George. This is horrible!

I think that she will do fine playing the part of Nancy Drew. It would be like a dream if I could act that part (I have strawberry blonde hair) but who ever said the world was fair anyways.

OMIGOSH!!!!!
I'm a huge fan of Nancy Drew, I have the a lot of the books and I've played all the computer games, but this is totally wrong!!! I would love to have a modern Nancy Drew movie, but not with Emma Roberts!!!! The only reason Emma got into showbiz because of her aunt!! She is totally preppy. A better Nancy would be Lindsey Shaw. And I read on this one website, on the cast list, I didn't see Carson Drew or Bess! This movie is not going to be good. My best friend is mad about this too.

I don't think Emma looks old enough to play Nancy. She has always come off as sort of a child. I am really happy they made a modern movie of Nancy Drew, but I am really dissapointed in the makers of this movie.

If you want a good movie, don't use Emma Roberts as Nancy! Ask the people who really know what Nancy Drew stands for! Whatever happened to the strawberry-blonde haired beauty that we have all grown to love? You should read the book. If you do you will know that she is the worst for that part.Take a look at all of these other comments- they strongly dislike Emma being in this position. Take my advice- listen to the people because they are the people making you money- give what they want and they'll give you more! Because we are real Nancy Drew fans!

Okay everybody, listen. I think Emma will do great in this movie. Who cares is she LOOKS like her or not? I mean, think about it. If you got offered the lead role for a movie, would you take it? of course you would. Thats just what Emma did. All you people should not be criticizing Emma just because she doesnt look like how you picture nancy drew. All Emma did was take this opportunity and I know you would too. I have seen Emma's acting and she is great. Respect her. Like everyone's parents always say, IF YOU DONT HAVE SOMETHING NICE TO SAY, DONT SAY ANYTHING AT ALL. think about it.....im ashamed

Why does everyone think Emma will do a terrible job. From all the interviews I've read, this is her dream role, and I'm really looking forward to seeing the movie. So if you're not happy with the role of Nancy, don't see the movie!

I can't believe that you guys are mad. Shouldn't we be happy that producers realize how good Nancy Drew is as a role model? I know that I'm gratfull that they are making a movie about my favorite legend. Why shouldn't we be happy. Her hair is probably a lot lighter then what it shows anyways, so all of you need to "lighten up" some. I personally think that Emma Roberts will do a perfectly fine job as Nancy Drew, and there's nothing you can say that will change my mind.

Emma Roberts will be a perfact Nancy Drew, and even if she doesnt i will enjoy seeing her in the theatres, she is an amazing actress and has the most gorgous face. Ive wanted to meet her ever since Unfabulous came out because she seems like a really cool person shes my rolemodel.

Hey I am sooooo excited for this movie I cant wate to see it!!And I dont care what the other people say Emma Roberts will do a awesome job and thats what caught my attention when the camercial came on.

Ease up on Emma Roberts. She will make an awesome Nancy Drew. I think the movie will be awesome. Also in the movie Nancy is 16. I think Emma looks like a 16 year Nancy. :-)

KAT said...

I think Emma is a great choice. I think it would be cutting out lots of great actors if they based everything on the color of hair (shallow). At first I thought that Nancy and Ned would look way to young, But did you know that the guy playing Ned is like 18. (That's old to me i guess) I do hope that there is some kind of mystery at least. i would over all say i'm looking forward to it...
