Time to cast this nonexistent movie

I know some people hate when authors post their ideal book cast because it’s different than who they pictured….

But too bad :)

I happen to LOVE when people post who they think should play a certain role! And I’m a very visual person (I blame the film buff in me) so I almost always have someone in mind when I’m writing a book.

That being said, I wanted to post the people I had in mind when writing “Sugar Coated” because… well… why not?

Of course none of these actors look EXACTLY like my characters… except maybe Jonah… he’s pretty spot on. And Brynn. Okay fine. Most of them do. But still, it’s fun.

 Let's start with Brynn

 It's not really a secret that I flippin LOVE Emily Browning. So of course I modeled my main character after her.

And then there's Ty
When I was looking for inspiration for Ty, I actually just Googled "Actors with blonde hair and brown eyes". It's a surprisingly difficult combination to find! But then I came across Xavier Samuel and he looked SO much like Ty. So done. There he is! 

Of course, if we're going to talk about Ty, we have to talk about Jonah

This one was another no-brainer. Logan Lerman is Jonah. That's all there is to it :)

Amber and Bennett were easy, because in fact I just modeled them after my RL friends Amber Stuart and Whitney Bennett. Easy Peasy!

And then we have Eris.

She was a little more difficult to cast. Originally, I had a picture in my mind of what Eris looked like and it was a cross between this made up character and a drawing someone had done of GLaDOS from the game Portal. So I had to think of someone who could embody that creepy, powerful, beautiful person. And I instantly thought of Charlize Theron... with a white blonde asymmetrical bob of course :)

So there you have it. My ideal book cast for "Sugar Coated"! 

Who did you guys picture while reading it? Are any of these people close to what you saw?

Until next time,
