I think they cast Major Anderson as a girl... what do you think?

Great find, Cassandra!

OSC changed Anderson into a woman over ten years ago in his early drafts of the screenplay. I think it's great. Doesn't change anything substantially about the character, and adds an additional spunky female presence to the mix.

See this VERY OLD (1999) script excerpt from the FrescoPix days here, where Anderson is a woman.

She's playing a shrink? Sounds more like Major Imbu to me.

MY first impression was that this actress was designed for sister carlotta, not Anderson. Why else would they NOT mention who she was playing? I think they are making Enders gamer and shadow shadow in same movie myself. I also think they dont want that known. Ive read parts that said Beans life will be shown alot, meaning Sister Carlotta or a version of her needs to be there. OR....maybe they combining Arndersons Character And Sister Carlotta together. That makes some sense too.

Anyone think she might play duel role of both Sister Carlotta and Anderson? Or maybe they are hiding the sister Carlotta character to throw people off the Shadow series? I kinda go with Anderson in playing both roles as Anderson.
