Just Some Characters...
I've been struggling lately with finding the right look/person/actor whatever that would represent my characters best, should a movie ever be done. Yeah. Sure. But it helps to finally put a face to the character. Seriously, I have this image in my head of Black Rose, but he's always changing because I could never pinpoint his looks. Well, I finally (after discussing it with my hubby) found someone!
Taylor Kitsch. He played Gambit in 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine'. Yep. That is Black Rose. Maybe not looking so happy or smug. :D
So my other characters, for the most part, have been taken care of. For example, Kayta in my 'Crowning Absolution' story... Kate Beckinsale. That's pretty much the look of her. From 'Van Helsing'. But Kayta is like 18..19 years old. Her mother, Nive (Knee vay) would be this lady:
Shohreh Aghdashloo. She was in 'X-Men: Last Stand' as well as 'Lake House'. She's pretty! And doing well for being 57.
What about Alabassin? My sweet, cute Alabassin who actually does get to choose love in an arranged marriage. My friend, who I portrayed him after, sort of looks like Johnny Depp. But Johnny (sadly) just does not fit the bill. Alabassin should look like Justin Chatwin from 'The Invisible'. Throw some blonde hair on that boy and he'd do just fine!
Alabassin's father was easy, but everyone would mistake him for Draco's father. Jason Issacs fits Mandorak Li'endrin perfectly.
And then there is Farrehn, my half ogre. And his buddy Vendras. The Rock would make a great Farrehn. And originally, I had chosen Heath Ledger as Vendras, he's just got that smart alecky look down pat!
I have yet to find anyone suitable to fit Nightshadow or even Laria. I'll have to work that out. My brain is a little bit mush today. I hate being sick!! But oh well.
Hope you enjoyed this post. It is nice to put an image to a name. Have a great day, everyone!
