Seems like everyone has a “dream cast” or “head cast” of their favorite books these days. If a movie or show is ever made based on the book, these are the actors they want to see in the main roles. Well, I don’t know about other writers, but I have a dream cast for the characters in my own books. Some of the characters, like Sara, could be played by a couple of different actors, but really there’s just one I want for most of them. So I thought I’d share them with you!
For Sara Stone, the heroine of the Freefall Trilogy, I’d LOVE to see Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark on Game of Thrones) play her. Granted, Sophie isn’t as tall as Sara, but I’m willing to budge on that. If Claire Randall Fraser of Outlander can have blue instead of brown eyes, then my heroine can be a little shorter. Especially since that will give me some leeway on other characters.
For Daniel I picture Aidan Turner most of all. He’s not tall enough by far, but he looks right otherwise, with the longish dark curls. I’m not sure what color his eyes are, but he just has the right look.
For Lucifer I picture Tom Hiddleston. Full stop. Nobody else. Don’t ask me why Lu is Tom, but Tom is Lu and I can’t see anyone else in the role.
Then we get to less important roles. I haven’t figured them all out. For example Michael I have no idea.
Samael would probably be played best by Paul Bettany, both appearance and acting-wise.
And I think Evanna Lynch would be perfect as Gabriel.
There you have it! Who do YOU see in these roles? What about the characters I left out? I want to know!
