A selfish trophy wife, a flirt with a siren song or a spoilt little rich girl desperate for love?
To celebrate the release of Baz Luhrmanns hotly anticipated 3-D version of F. Scott Fitzgeralds seminal novel, , we look back at the actresses whove played one of literatures most alluring characters.
It cant have been fun for Betty Field to know the actress up for the part of Daisy before her, Gene Tierney, was considered "too beautiful" for the over-moralising 1949 film version.
No one does hysterical quite like Mia Farrow, who played Daisy opposite a devilishly dashing Robert Redford in 1974. Floating about in pastels and pearls, she perfectly captures Daisys shallow materialism when she cries over the beauty of Gatsbys... shirts. As you do.
She may be an Oscar winner but Mira Sorvino didnt inspire obsession with her portrayal of Daisy in a 2000 made-for-TV movie for which may have taken a little too much inspiration from Mia.
Can Carey pull off the mercurial Daisy in all her complicated, manipulative and seductive charm and maintain her famously 'full of money' Southern accent?
Well find out when The Great Gatsby opens in cinemas from 16 May.More
