Though both are described as ugly, just skip that one because Willemijn is fucking beautiful. They’re also described as tall, skinny, with a pointed nose, and obviously green skin. And OH look!: 

She’s got it all, tall…ish, thin face and physique, her bone structure is on point, and she looks lovely in green.   

She’s also a wonderful actress, she can pull off menacing and intimidating.

Completely awkward AF.

And adorable, just look at her!  LOOK AT HER!

She is Elphaba. So what I’m getting at is, Willemijn should play Elphaba in the 2019 Wicked movie

And girls need cold anger. They need the cold simmer, the ceaseless grudge, the talent to avoid forgiveness, the side stepping of compromise. They need to know when they say something that they will never back down, ever, ever.
