"Cast" of Bloodmaiden

So, I recently was asked who I would have play the various characters of Bloodmaiden if it was made into a movie. I always adored Elijah Wood and might choose him for Chalom--but I don't know if he'd look good painted blue, and despite his eternal youth, even he might be a little too old now. He might fare better as Brydon, with his ability to look deep, sorrowful, and portray a wide range of emotions.

I have lined up a few young ladies for Crislin though, of varying ages. The book doesn't specify how old she is, though in my mind, her and Chalom were always thirteen. The actress would have to contain a blend of child and young lady, on the verge of growing up but not quite yet, someone still sweet, innocent, naive, and well-capable of portraying these traits. Below are my actress choices, from fave to least:

1. Elle Fanning

2. Saoirse Ronan

3. Chloe Moretz

4. Emma Watson (WITH hair!!! and also if going for an older Crisilin)

5. Myself! Nevermind I have no acting skills to speak of; I AM still on the cover...

I haven't read the book, but I know that if Emma Watson would be the main character I would def. watch the movie. She's a great actress. :)

I reading posts like these. It really puts into perspective what I see in my head vs. what the author's intentions were while writing the book. I haven't read your book yet, but if/when I do I'll have to remember to come back here and see what you said.

This is really great to see what the author has in mind how a character looks like. Usually I take the image from the cover if it has main characters on it, or have to imagine them myself:)

Thanks; it was indeed a fun post to write. I like to envision what characters look like myself while reading, but it is interesting to get the author's view as well; I got the idea from Stephenie Meyers' site, where she too chose her own actors for Twilight.

Glad you enjoyed, thanks for stopping by, and best to all entering the give-away!

I've heard great things about the book!! I kind of like that you didn't set the age of the characters. Makes me want to read it even more. :)

Just watched SOMEWHERE this week, so I couldn't agree more with your #1 pick.
