I remember my Shakespeare prof in college pointing out indications in the
plays that there may have been "the short dark one" (Hermia, Celia) and
"the tall blonde one" (Helena, Rosalind).
--Margaret Dean

Gwynne: Yes, Shax wasn't writing the play and then casting to suit it, he was
writing characters to fit the cast that he had available.
