Ok So I decided I would say my piece on this and have done with it so I can seriously put it behind me.
Rachelle is always going to feel like Victoria to me, simple because she is the ORIGINAL!
A lot of people have put up arguements from everything between no one is complaining about the director switches and blah blah blah. Guess what? Thats not abnormal for a film. My case and point is Harry Potter. Then it was also brought to my attention about Dumbledore. Guess what? He died you cant really change that. But you sure noticed when he was in the film the differences between the two actors playing the characters.
Its on thing to change the director's. This really doesnt seem so weird to be considering. But to change a character? Just change it? I mean its one thin if they die. I understand this completely. You cant keep making a movie with a dead person it would have to be recast. But Rachelle is alive and well. Im not saying I dislike Bryce, I am saying she will never be an original, and I am backing Rachelle up on this one. Im not boycotting, but I am not pleased either. I have signed the petitions, I have done everything that has been being sent around. I think it shows support. This is our character and our movie. Maybe we dont have a say in it. No one really knew what would happen before, but you see a character and its like hey thats them or you start to associate them with their character. Maybe not completely as realize they arent themselves, hopefully someone understands what I am saying.
Anyway, my thoughts are a bit disorganized. This has been very trying on my nerves, which I have little of to begin with. What I am saying is is this. Rachelle will ALWAYS be Victoria to me. No matter who they've recasted.
Those who feel that people are just being a bit whiney. Well guess what? I'm whiney because they took my character away. What would happen if they took Rob or Kristen away. Hell even Peter, Jackson, Kellan, Ashley, Nikki or any other the other cast? There would be a hell fire right now and you know it!
Im just saying. Its not cool. Whatever happened happened. It would of been easier for them to approach her and say hey we can't do this or something or anything. But it feels (maybe its not what really happened I am simply speculating) like they just up and recast her. No discussion on the matter at all. Because it would seem with the Hightened popularity and continuing to portray a character YOU have already established would have come before another film. I think someones playing dirty. And we already know how Summit is. This was established before even New Moon began filming. So people who want to go back and retract, well awesome.
Anyway that is my piece, I have no facts, just going with my gut. If you dont like it. Well guess what? There will always be a difference of opinion.
