I can't understand why George would cut her out of the released version of Sith? Oscar material on so many levels. Bai Ling (born October 10, 1966), whose name is often given in the traditional Western order of Ling Bai, filmed scenes as Senator Bana Breemu in Revenge of the Sith, but her scenes were cut from the film. Bai claimed that it was the result of her posing in the June 2005 issue of Playboy, but George Lucas insisted that the cuts were made nearly a year prior to her posing for the magazine. Her scenes were later featured in the "Deleted Scenes" category on the Revenge of the Sith DVD. On the DVD, Lucas reiterated his claim, saying her scenes were deleted for length.
