This thread about what it means when Princess Leia can live even after Carrie Fisher has died has me confronting some new and 😳 ideas. Is the future about actresses licensing their youth? Will a dead actor win an Oscar?

The problem with this idea is that it’s super difficult to create an authentic performance from a digitally resurrected actor. You end up either stitching together old performances or creating a digital avatar mapped to another actor’s performance

True, at least at this point. It'll be interesting / unsettling to see how that tech evolves. There is clearly energy & $$$$ behind making this work...
