The thing is, like most other writers around, I have a mental list of actors who form the cast of my stories. This list floats around in my head, changing on an almost daily basis. I never usually assign an actor to a certain character before I have a solid mental picture of the character though.
I find it confusing and annoying when you read something and then see it and while the image of the actor doesn’t always match the image of the character in your head, it slowly becomes the image of the character you see in your head when you read.
Tonight, I went to see a movie with some friends and I believe I’ve found a suitable casting (hypothetically, of course!) for a supporting role in one of my WIPs. However, my choice might be seen as slightly controversial.
So first I’ll ask you this question:
Who is your dream cast for your novel/s?
