Don’t you just love doing this? Picking a person who fits your character’s description and dreaming about how wonderful it would be if your book was made into a movie and this person played them… *dreamy sigh* Pardon me while I go contact a producer.
Anyway, since I love it so much, I decided I’d post my own character’s models!
Jennifer Lawrence as Sienna Hunter
Sienna is a selfish, headstrong 17-year-old girl from modern Manhattan. When she is thrust into the frightening ‘fantasy’ world of Elmeria, she realizes that her priorities and attitude have to change – or somebody is going to get hurt.
Hunter Perrish as Alec Hunter
Alec is Sienna’s younger brother, a 15-year-old boy with a cheerfully annoying attitude and an excitement for life. Upon entering Elmeria he realizes that he is going to have to find the one thing he doesn’t have – maturity.
Adam Gregory as Eristor
Eristor sees himself as a bitter contrast – a prince without a kingdom, beauty marred by scars, a kind and tender heart smothered by spite and hatred for life. But when Sienna begins to rethink her attitude, he realizes that she isn’t the only one who needs to.
Dianna Agron as Raeta
Can’t tell you anything about her – it’s a secret! (A really BIG secret!)
Paul Walker as Tylir
Tylir is the only human Eristor tolerates, and often provides a good dose of good-natured rebuke and common sense for his cold-hearted friend.
Hayley Westenra as Sahäla
Sahäla is beauty and sweetness in itself. She possesses knowledge of herbs and healing, and is a valued and loved member of the group.
Michael Trevino as Kael/Thane
Kael and Thane are identical twins; usually cheerful, sometimes moody, but excellent trackers and unparalelled with a sling. They have more in store for them than they know.
Ryan Reynolds as Salebeth
Salebeth is gentle, wise, and has a dry sense of humor. He is a lore-master as well as a historian and linguist. He takes Sienna and Alec under his wing.
Liam Neeson as Caranthir
Caranthir is the good-turned-evil stepfather of Eristor. Somewhat Darth Vader-ish.
Warwick Davis as Treefist (with BROWN hair/beard and ‘younger’-looking makeup)
Treefist is a dwarf-like Nome – not a gnome, a Nome – who seems to have a never-ending amount of pessimism. He is, however, stoutly loyal and kind underneath his gruffness.
James Purefoy as Alden Cade
Alden Cade was once a respected leader in Oscariath’s army – until one flaw took away everything he had, including his sanity. He now lives in the moutains with his Monster – but her story is another, as well.
John Malkovich as Eilam
Eilam is a prophet – or so everybody thinks – who is usually viewed as crazy, though he says nothing but the truth. He has an uncanny ability to ‘see into’ people.
Allan Hyde as Prince Oscariath
Prince Oscariath rebelled against King Amar and was thrown out, along with his followers. He is evil incarnated, and will stop at nothing to destroy the world that Amar has created.
Enya as Arie
Arie is the ‘Galadriel’ of Florenhaven – her part is not large, but she is elegant and wise.
Ben Barnes as Marcus Gale
Marcus Gale is an aristocrat-turned-pirate, forced away from his family for a crime he did not commit. He is fun-loving and enjoys a good brawl.
Patrick Dempsey as Talad
Talad is Arie’s husband and the leader of Florenhaven.
Taylor Swift as Princess Lilith
Princess Lilith is the girl whom Sienna envies (though she does not show up until the last book). She has perfect manners, perfect looks – and would make a perfect match for Eristor.
Robert Downey Jr. as Lord Sardis
Sardis is Caranthir’s rival for Oscariath’s regard. He is, quite bluntly, a slimeball who’s only redeeming quality is his love for his daughter, Zuleika.
Megan Fox as Lady Zuleika
Zuleika is beautiful, vain, and immoral – definitely not the type you want your children to hang out with. She has potential to be a great ally for Amar due to her position as Sardis’s daughter, but convincing her is going to be anything but easy.
What do you think? An all-star cast, no? And pretty much complete – I’ll update it if I find another, of course. You never know when a new character will appear out of nowhere!
