Forgotten Women of Genre: Sarah Halley Finn

Mar 25, 2019, 12:58 PM EDT (Updated)

March is Women's History Month. And while here on SYFY FANGRRLS we celebrate women's achievements throughout the year, we're going above and beyond for the upcoming month with a limited podcast series called Forgotten Women of Genre.

The landscape of superhero franchises has helped to completely reshape Hollywood over the past decade, as well as our image of the action hero. Gone are the days of the mindless muscled bro: Now we have a quirkier, more sensitive breed of leading man. One women is arguably more responsible for the current era of stardom than anyone else in Hollywood. Casting is one of the industry's most misunderstood processes, and it also happens to be a field dominated by women. Today’s Forgotten Woman of Genre is Marvel's casting director Sarah Halley Finn, the woman who gave us the MCU as we know it (as well as a plethora of hotties named Chris).

Science fiction, fantasy, and all associated genres have finally evolved from a niche interest into a mainstream staple. But the women who have been instrumental in creating and shaping the nerdverse have largely gone unrecognized. Until today. Forgotten Women of Genre tells the stories of the women who helped some of the most famous fantasy worlds become a reality.

New episodes of this series will be released each day in the month of March, in addition to regularly scheduled episodes of STRONG FEMALE CHARACTERS.
