  1. In the book I am writing with a friend I would want Emma Watson to play Kat because she really suits the character to me. Also I would have Willow Shields play the lead Paisley because I think she would be the only actress I’ve heard of be able to pull Paisley off and is the right age.

Lastly, I would have Aurthur Bowen play Van because I think he looks the part and could easily pull it off.

  3. This isn’t something I’ve ever thought about when writing my stories, but now that the question came up, I can’t believe how hard it is to answer!

    For my story Cold Flames, I think I’d choose Dakota Blue Richards as my lead. She’s always struck me as a free-spirit, and that’s partially what I envisioned in my main character. Of course, it’s been a few years since “The Golden Compass,” “The Secret of Moonacre,” and “Dustinbin Baby,” which are the main movies that come to mind when I think of her. Besides that, I think she’s the perfect fit (:

  4. I can completely see Sam Claflin playing the sarcastic main character Harvey Bennet in my novel “HARVEY”. Even much so that I created a fictional magazine (in the website link) to go along with my story.

    Giana.

  5. When I’m writing Hunted, I always picture Max Irons as Heracles, Rupert Grint as Romulus, and Georgie Henley as Athena (In the latter portion of the book when she’s fourteen). And also Liam Neeson as Jupiter Whiet.

  6. Ar’s Minion: My main characters will be played by Zoey Deshanel as Sara the Vampire Minion because she is so quirky and funny, and Ari the Vampire will be played by the actor Steven Strait because he has that honest look but still quite a bad boy in some way.

  7. My story is called Lost Girl, found here: http://figment.com/books/495385-Lost-Girl . I think ChloΓ« Moretz would be best as the main character, Ell, since she looks so youthful just like I imagine Ell. I also think she’d do a great job at acting the part.:) Of course, she’d have to dye her hair or wear a wig because Ell has black hair.

  8. I honestly think that Richard Armitage would be who I would choose to play Garret. Richard Armitage, who portrayed Guy of Gisborne in the BBC Robin Hood series, and Thorin Oakenshield in the Hobbit, has an air of power about him that would greatly suit Garret’s character.

  9. Although her acting skills are scant, I would love to see Sarah Brightman play the leading role of Olive Degarmo in “Violetta Falls”. I would like for all of the actors to do their own singing, and I think this would be a role she would do justice to. As far as the other characters, I would love to see Danielle De Niese play Meera Darzi (because De Niese is actually South Asian like Meera Darzi is intended to be). But of course, if better actors who are opera trained could be found, that would be ideal. For example, Natalie Dessay, who is an incredible actor and opera singer could play Olive.
