The Umbrella Academy: Dallas #1 Signing @ Golden Apple Comics, Los Angeles, CA. 28/11/08
Oh look it’s Vanya
I tried to draw on Anne Hathaway’s facial features in this, I very much wanted to make her look at least a little bit like Anne. She looks like Anne to me, but that could just be wishful thinking.
I read in an interview with Gerard where he was talking about who he’d like to cast if Umbrella Academy was made into a film (there were plans made for a film, but sadly it seems that they’re either scrapped or on hold for a LONG time). He said he’d love for Anne Hathaway to play Vanya.
At the time, I laughed out loud. Anne Hathaway? Princess Mia? The Devil Wears Prada girl? Who always plays nice meek dorky characters in chick flicks? As Vanya? Lol no.
Then Batman and Les Miserables happened. So much for the chick flick girl.
So now I can quite happily swallow my words - Anne Hathaway would be goddamn perfect for Vanya.
Might send this to Gerard along with my letter.
