Many people think that the problem is not with the two actresses, but with the makeup stage. Judging by the released images, the makeup looks of the two live-action versions of Forgers look very different from the originals. Still, if they can really convey the characters, it won’t be too much of a problem.

In fact, this problem exists with almost every stage project that adapts manga and anime, such as Kimetsu No Yaiba, Naruto, or My Hero Academia. Many viewers are always asking actors to look like their favorite characters, paying little attention to other factors—including acting.

At present, there are various opinions about the role of Yor Forger in the Spy X Family stage play, and it is still hotly debated. The manufacturer has yet to take any action. According to Lag, changing actors is nearly impossible. However, they can completely change the way they dress to bring the characters closer to the original.
