    What about the mysterious Cybertonian tattoo on her shoulder(back?)?

    She sounds a little bitter. Anytime someone utters the phrase "I didn't want to do it, anyway." they really did.

    Good. She was a terrible actor and her role was pointless.

    Thank god... didn't care for her character in the first movie (though, she herself was a good actress... much better than the eyecandy that played Mikela...)

    I'd like to know what work she has lined up that would be considered commercially "better" than than a major Hollywood film such as Transformers.

    *checks IMDB for Rachael Taylor's future projects*

    Yep, absolutely nothing.

    I was actually annoyed by her in the movie, particularly by what sounded like an over-exaggeration of her Australian accent (which I know she has naturally).

    No offense meant to her as it's not her doing, but her character kind of barely fit into the first movie in the first place. >.>

    Oh, the signal hacker subplot.

    Nothing against her, but I wish they scrapped that entire plot point in the first movie. Completely useless.

    Since everyone else is beating up on the poor girl, I'll go ahead and say I'm gonna miss her sexy voice.

    Well that's one less human and one more spot a Transformer can fit into.

    She wasn't nearly has horrible an actress at Megan Fox...but thank god the hackers won't be back. It wasn't needed in the first movie in the slightest.

    She knew since the beginning that oit would be hard to adapt her character for a sequel, I remember an interview with her last year saying that adding another data analyst would be a hard thing to do. After all, she wasn't bad in her character, what killed the hacker subplot was Glenn.

    The hackers served a purpose at the start of the film. Toward the end it seemed extremely tacked on and an over all after though. Even though she was beautiful I am happy she isn't coming back.

    So that other Aussie actress that was previously linked to TF2 could be replacing Taylor as Maggie, or are they doing away with that character altogether?

    Pretty sure they're doing away with her character all together. The other actress is getting different role I believe... though I have kept up much with that... aside from the fact that the new actress was apparently hand picked by Spielberg...

    You know, hackers straight out of high school going to college at the same time as other high school kids in TF1 going to college? Absolutely right, she wouldn't fit into the new film AT ALL! Not that I wanted to see her back, but she'd fit better into the suggested plot for TF2 than she did in TF1. She already knows Sam, she's going to be in college, and there's every chance she'd have ties to whatever agency gets set up in the government to deal with the great alien menace that we can't allow anyone to know about.

    I didn't like her character, but this is precisely the sort of grounding that could have been used to build on the mythos, instead of scraping and acting like it's an all new story for each film.
