    I read that she was cut from the movie, because she posed topless for Playboy. She said that didn't know that her issue will coincide with ROTS.

    From IMDB

    "Chinese actress Bai Ling, who stars opposite Nick Nolte in the upcoming The Beautiful Country, has told the New York Post that she was cut out of the final installment of Star Wars after George Lucas learned that she had posed topless for Playboy.The newspaper reported that she burst into tears after getting word that her scene had been removed. "I just found out that my part has been completely cut out," she told the Post. "I do not know what happened." However, she speculated that it may have had something to do with her layout in June's Playboy. "I did not know that Playboy was going to come out the same time as Star Wars. I saw them as separate projects. I see the human body as beautiful and not pornographic, but maybe the Star Wars producers did not see what I did. I am in shock."

    I will just get the issue for the TRIVIA comprendium.

    Somehow, I don't think the Playboy pictorial is the reason. If it is, then it is hypocritical, because Ewan has been very nekkid in many movies before he was even cast as Obi-Wan Kenobi. Not that I'm complaining about that fact. :whoops:

    Apparently a LFL rep says the scene was actually cut almost a year ago.

    I read that as well. Interesting that she would attend c3 and not be in the movie at all. Although, I guess you could say the same about the girl that "plays" Mara Jade.

    yeah, i read something that her scene was cut quite some time ago. a little deception on the part of the people at officialpix/c2ventures/rebelscum/theforce.net .... whatever you want to call them ... charging the same amount for her autograph as david prowse, keeny baker, ray park, temura morrison and so on.

    yeah..but Bai Ling was a recognized name before she was ever attacehd to SW. so I still consider it an autograph worth having, though $10 would have been nicer.

    I got the issue for as they called "the most comprehesive Star Wars Trivia Compendium". It was a disappoiment since must all they "trivia" was nothing new, and mostly things that 99.9% fans already knew. Yesterday a local newspaper published a much better comprendium.
