Probably wrong build, otherwise not so bad.

Aside from "tall, slender, athletic and graceful" we haven't had a detailed description of Honor's build. Also, the dress in the photo reveals a lot more than would a uniform. Dressing her to fit the role would be a lot less trouble than the CGI effects and such being discussed to make shorter actors look tall enough.

The description i was thinking about was ~trim and fit courtesy of heavy gravity world and rigorous exercise regimen... ( inexact quote from OBS, initial description of her )

And for RFC, high grav build is normally bulkier than average. While "enhanced muscle development" should most definitely not result in a "slender" build in combination with heavy exercise.

Not saying it should be a bodybuilder style or anything(that would be equally strange), but i would certainly expect a bit more bulk even from someone strongly favouring "flat" muscles(which is quite likely as Honor likes swimming and martial arts style training and the like rather than weight lifting ).

And i can´t recall anywhere that calls her "slender"?

IIRC there is a detailed infodump in IEH about the Meyherdahl-B (sp?) gene mods and how Honor is a heavy grav-worlder without the stocky, stumpy overgrown look of someone unmodified growing up in heavy gravity..

First unlike most I think there are many actress that could play Honor. I don't think you need somebody that is 6foot 2 to play her, there are many actresses that are around 6 foot like Jamie Alexander, Karen Gillian, Emma Ishta, and others that I think can play this part. I don't think you have to match Honor perfectly but a rear match would work. As to who they pick to play Honor that would be up to David Weber and evergreen studios. My only concern is that they find the best for the part. Movies are magic and they can make you see what they want to from a 6 foot actress being a 4 inch faire to spaceships and monsters. Lets all hope for the best.
