Today's challenge is casting characters! As mentioned yesterday in my playlist post, I don't really match songs to books, and so the same goes for actors and characters as well. I imagine it will take a while for me to find the 'perfect' pictures for my cast...
Disclaimer (if it can really be called a disclaimer): This isn't really a movie casting per se, but how I see the characters in my head based on the photo itself. So I could be picking a younger photo of an actor who's like 50 years old as of now.
Scarlet Benoit — Karen Dillan
I can't believe this Scottish lass is 27! She could absolutely pass for 18-year-old Scarlet with a shotgun and red hoodie. Plus I love her hair. All we need to do is curl it like Scarlet's.
Wolf — Alejo Sauras
I will not apologise for this smouldering picture. His hair and jawline totally give off that wolfish vibe. This Spanish actor is like 37 years old now, so this is definitely from his younger days. I scanned Google for green-eyed actors and only this picture fit what I was looking for.
Linh Cinder — Chloe Bennet
I FINALLY FOUND A GOOD PIC OF HER IN A PONYTAIL. She's half Chinese, half American, and I love her acting in Agents of Shield! Her character, Skye, is tomboyish like Cinder and I can imagine her getting all greasy and dirty as a mechanic.
Prince (now Emperor) Kai — Kim Soo Hyun
Tried to find a colour version of this photo but couldn't. At least his hair is rather on point! Kim Soo Hyun has this crisp look about him, perfect for Kai. He even played a crown prince (and eventually an emperor) in Moon Embracing The Sun, one of my favourite Korean historical dramas!
"Captain" Carswell Thorne — Chace Crawford
This character was the easiest to cast. Chace Crawford totally has the flirtatious smile and raised eyebrows that Meyer talks about!
Queen Levana — Rebecca Mader/Charlize Theron
It's a close tie between these two. Rebecca was brilliant as the Wicked Witch of the West in OUAT, while Charlize was a spectacular Evil Queen in Snow White and the Huntsman. Who do you think could be Queen Levana?
OKAY SCRAP THAT CHARLIZE WINS WITH THIS MAGAZINE SHOOT
