She'll be 25 years old when the movie is finally released. There are a lot of young reporters/journalists out there. She doesn't have to be in her 30s.

So what's her drug of choice? Coke? Meth? Heroine?

I guess that's just how I always thought of her.

Judith Hoag, the actress who played April O'Neil in the 1990 live action film, was 22 when she played the character.

That's crazy. I guess 7 year old me thought she was older, though 22 is old for a 7 year old. That and the late 80's perms always make women look older.

I think this is the correct answer. I re-watched this film pretty recently, like within the last two years, and Hoag still looked like she was in her late-20s, early-30s.

If you watch the new Saturday morning cartoon April is a teenage girl. It seems to be the current trend in Cartoons. They take traditional adult characters and make them teens in the reboot. I guess it is an attempt to make them more relatable to today's youth.

I opened this thread hoping you were talking about the OTHER April O'Neil. The...adult...film star one...

Also, isn't she a lot young to be playing April?


The current cartoon has a teenage April. And Kevin Eastman told us at Wizard World that the alien story line was scrapped.

I was thinking the same thing.
