Dream Movie: MC Casting Call

And now, a new feature I stole borrowed from Christine's blog (seriously, if you haven't checked it out yet, do it!): casting your dream movie. I'm casting my main characters today, since that seemed like a good place to start. I will say, before I get into my casting, I've never seen any of the following actors in the movies or on tv. I know what they've acted in, but I haven't actually seen them work, so I'm basing my casting purely on the look of my characters. Maybe someday I'll go back and do more research, but my characters all have a very specific look, so I'm focusing on that right now.

Onward! None of you know anything about my characters, and I'm not quite ready to share that with the masses yet, but you will learn their names in this post. :)

For Faron, the oldest of the MCs, I've gone with Chace Crawford (in all his gorgeous glory). He's got gorgeous brown hair, like Faron's, and blue eyes that could easily change to green with contacts. His build is similar, and from what I've heard, he's pretty tall. :)

For Orla, I chose Ariana Grande. She's beautiful, as befits a princess, and she has the gorgeous dark red hair I gave Orla in the story. She'd be perfect!

That hair!

Kai is the spunky character, with crazy/messy black hair and blue-green eyes. I chose Logan Lerman (of Percy Jackson fame).

And finally, for Wren (the youngest of the four), I chose Niamh Wilson. She was in the Saw movies, which I refuse to watch, but she's tiny and blonde like Wren. There aren't many photos of her, unfortunately.

So there you have it, the heroes in my imaginary movie! Who would you cast if your book was made into a movie? Leave your answer in the comments or, if you choose to respond with a blog post, leave a link!

  1. I'm hardly the first to do the dream casting, but super-thanks for the sweet shout-out :)

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE your casting here. It fits what I do know about your characters perfectly. Also, each of the characters has a very distinct look, which is fantastic. Ariana/Orla is breathtaking--wow!


Now that you took the time to read my message, let's see what you have to say! Unless it's mean...then you can just keep it to yourself. :)
