Feature and Follow #64

Alison Can Read Feature & Follow

This is a weekly blog hop hosted by the wonderful Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. This week's featured blogger is:

Q: It is up to you to do a Kickstarter campaign for your favorite book!!! Who are you casting for the main characters?


Ooh, that's a tricky one. It's not the easiest thing trying to pick real life actors that will depict the same appeal and vision you had for them in the book so I don't know if I could ever pick the "right" actors. I know that's so blah but it's really hard to pick actors that will match up to my favs in Nevermore. There will never be anyone in real life that will look exactly the way I envision Varen or Isobel, but I'd say Shiloh Fernandez and AnnaSophia Robb.

  2. I've never read the book but by looking at the cover I'd the say the cast you chose is pretty darn close to it. Thanks for stopping by my F&F. :)

  4. Nice picks! I have yet to read the book, but I'm digging the cast you chose. I love that girl (don't know her name right off the bat, but she's a great actress). Thanks for stopping by earlier. ;) Happy Friday, Shane!

  6. Thanks for visiting the land of Yumminess earlier! I haven't read this yet, but I think I would be a fan of this cast from what I've heard. One of these days I'll make it to it, and will certainly be picturing these faces along with it!

    1. Indeed, everyone has their own idea of characters in books look like and movies ruin it.

      Thanks for dropping by :)

  11. I really liked Nevermore when I read it and I would see it if a movie adaptation had your casting. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  12. Haha! Nice! You spoke my words exactly!! Actors never really live up tom expectations of book character roles. Mostly because I think of them in whatever their current or "hot" role was. To me, they are that character! I still think of Heath Ledger as the bad boy from 10 Things I Hate About You vs the Joker!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  16. It is really hard to pick the right actors. No one ever really matches...it's more who comes the closest? Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

  17. Ha! I just borrowed Nevermore form the library. I'll be visualizing your chosen actors as the characters when I read it.

    Thanks for stopping by my FF:)

  18. I'm finding a lot of new books on this hop that I need to check out! Love the casting; you're right it is so hard to pick out actors for favorite characters.

    Thanks for stopping by :-)

  19. It's hard to get the 'right' actors as everyone has a slightly different mental image of what they should look like. I don't know the book but the actors you picked look fairly similar to the cover models so you've obviously picked up on the publisher's vibe. Thanks for stopping by my F&F

  21. I have Nevermore on my e-reader but haven't read it yet! I love Edgar Allen Poe so I wanted to get this one. I love your casting, but agree it's hard to pick what you visualize in your mind as being 100% accurate! Thanks for sharing!
