For those who haven't seen it, animator Jonathan Cooper posted this today on Twitter:

"Ten years ago this month, my very first anim test for Mass Effect. Yup, Commander Shepard was originally a woman:"

(He clarifies in the comments that Shepard was always planned to be both male and female.)

I thought it was a nice bit of ME history that people here might enjoy.
