Excellent cast! And she's drop-dead gorgeous. Especially when I imagine the rapport between her and Michelle.

Son, your mother says I have to hang you. Personally I don't think this is a capital offense. But if I don't hang you, she's gonna hang me and frankly, I'm not the one in trouble. —cthia's father. Incident in ? Axiom of Common Sense

About 1000 shades too light in the skin.

Not really. There's a passage (I'm too lazy to go look up the reference right now) where W.E.B. DuHavel is explaining the long-forgotten concept of "racism", and he mentions that Elizabeth is much lighter-skinned than her cousin Michele Henke.

Actually it was about 'slavery' and everybody gasped at his description of 'African slaves' as describing the queen but he corrected that she was lighter, and (yes) he mentions that they were more like Michelle - so Queen/Empress Elisabeth should be more like {Hindu - not North American}Indians with Black/African features.

Shaunette Renée Wilson from The Resident(TV) or Ann Ogbomo from Krypton might be options for Michelle Henke.
