It was a good decision by the casting director to cast Heather Thomas as Virgo star Nicole Kidman. The casting director obviously noticed her connection to Virgo star, Heather Lockley because of their shared love of children. She has also appeared in a few episodes of Law and Order: SVU. It was interesting to me that there was a connection between Heather Thomas and Virgo star Nicole Kidman because both stars have strong traces of green in their names. I wonder if the director and writer of the movie connected the two in some way because it is similar to the plot of the movie wherein Nicole Kidman had a crush on James Dean.
My favorite attribute about Heather Thomas would be her ability to create characters that look real while at the same time using her famous persona to put the character in an outrageous situation. While I don’t think she’s quite fit for the role of Mrs. Sneezy in Home Alone, I believe she would have done very well as the child-sitter in the movie. In this role she would have been able to play the character of a loving mother, while still being able to get funny in her character while keeping her true personality.
