It’s Day 3 of the Fantasy Favourites Read-A-Thon and today involves casting people to play the roles of the characters in your current read. Now, this may not seem too difficult, but once you actually start you begin to realise that it’s a little more difficult then it first appeared to be. There have been times where I thought that I would actually be quite good as a Casting Director (is that the correct title?), but as soon as I began trying to cast people for the characters’ in Cinder, my mind went blank. I realised that I need a visual; as soon as I see someone, that is when I am able to say: That person would be great for that role. So began the Google image search...
Cinder: This was the most difficult role for me to cast, but as soon as I saw Emmy Rossum she looked like she could play Cinder, but I’m not sure if she looks too old as Cinder is a teenager, so I have a couple of other suggestions. Phoebe Tonkin and Emma Watson are my two other candidates for the role.
Prince Kai: I’ve managed to narrow this down to two people: Ben Barnes (remember Prince Caspian from the ‘Narnia’ movies? I have a small crush. Ssh) and Drew Roy (anyone watched Falling Skies?).
1ko: I know 1ko is in fact an android (right?), but someone has to voice her and I’m a big Emma Stone fan so I think that Emma would be great at voicing 1ko.
Adri: I think Liv Tyler would maybe be good as Adri.
Pearl: Natalie Dormer or Dakota Fanning.
Peony: Elle Fanning. It’s kind of fitting to have the Fanning Sisters playing sisters.
Dr Erland: John Hurt. He just looks the part.
Queen Levana: I haven’t actually read that far yet, so haven’t met Queen Levana, but I saw a picture of Gemma Arterton and pictured her playing this role. Either Arterton or Julianne Moore – I’m not sure what age Levana is supposed to be, but for some reason I can picture either of these two playing the role.
