Fantasy Casting THE DARK DIVINE movie: Grace Divine

10/13/10

***First things first, I wanted to tell you all that I'm speaking at the Salt Lake City Main Library this Friday (October 15th) at 7 pm in the main auditorium as part of their Dewey Lecture series. I'll be speaking about the power of words--and I may have a special little present for people who come out to the event.***


On to the fantasy casting:

Phew! Can I tell you how much work it was to compile all the pictures of the actors/actresses you guys nominated and then narrowing it down to my favorites? Pleasant work, yes, but hard and time consuming, none the less. There were so many great nominations!


I decided to make an individual post for each character rather than overwhelm you guys with too many options at once. That will be 8 posts in all over 16 days. Each post will stay up for 48 hrs so you guys can vote--and then in the end I'll post the "Ultimate Fantasy Cast" for a TDD movie.
Be sure to vote in the poll over on the SIDEBAR of the blog, AND also leave a comment on EACH post saying you voted. I will select 10 random commentors/voters to each win a bottle of the new THE LOST SAINT Nail-polish.*

You will get an 1 entry for each character-post you comment on/vote for. But only 1 entry per vote per character--voting multiple times for each character won't get you additional entries.

Today we're starting with Grace. I've narrowed down the nominations to my 5 favorite choices, including the actress who got the most nominations.


So let's get started...

GRACE DIVINE

Physical description: Almost 17. Fair skinned with long, dark brown, loosely curly hair and violet eyes. She describes her nose as being "Roman." Has that "girl next-door" fresh-faced kind of beauty going on. Short.

Actress choices:

Lucy Hale (I think she looks a lot like the actress in the TDD book trailer)


Emily Browning (Got the most nominations [8] but not my own most favorite...)


Allison Miller (Love her "girl-next-door" look)


Dakota Fanning (Not dark-haired, but she gets tons of bonus points for her talent. Plus, she can always dye her hair, right?)


Emma Roberts (Always one of my personal faves)


Now cast your vote in the poll (over on the SIDEBAR of this blog,) AND leave a comment saying you voted on so I can give you credit for your entry. You know you want some of that nail polish!* The poll for Grace will be open until 2:30 pm MST on October 15th.

*Nail polish can only she shipped within the United States. If an international winner is selected, they will be sent TDD stickers and a signed bookmark instead of nail polish.

Jeff Reid said...

Really wish we'd known you were going to do this :(
Both your books are on Storycasting.com, the site created just for 'fantasy casting', where everyone (including the author) can 'have their say'. Plus, we have actor photos built-in, and we provide instant stats on most-cast actors. Easier on authors, more fun for the fans. Give us a chance for the next book please! :)

Bree Biesinger Despain said...

Love the comments, guys. Get your friends to vote, too.

Danna- I hope you make it out to the event!

Jeff- Your site sounds great. I will have to give it a try the next time I do something like this.

Caitlin said...

Voted! :D

Lena said...

P.S. Allison Miller played the young version of Scarlet in 17 AGAIN. (one of new fave movies.) I thought she looked gorgeous in the movie.

Kristen said...

I voted for Emma Roberts. Love her ;)

Variety said...

I voted, but leave me out of the competition for nail polish. I'll get it sometime at a book event, cause you know I'll have to get the book signed. Just curious, though. How old are Lucy Hale and Emma Roberts? They look a little too old to play Grace.

Rebecca Bible said...

I vote it for Emma! She will be great!

Lillie said...

Allison Miller all the way!

Valerie said...

Voted for Allison, though I'm sad my choice wasn't up for nomination.

LOVE the nail polish!

I voted for Emma Roberts! When I scrolled down and saw her picture, I saw Grace there. :) She seems perfect especially with the dark hair!

Amanda said...

I voted for Allison Miller. I agree that she has that perfect girl next door look. :) And the nail polish looks Awesome! I hope I get one! :D

KM said...

Great choices! Hmm...I'd have to go with Allison Miller. Every time I see Emma Roberts, all I can think of is her old Nickelodeon show. lol

Bwyatt said...

Voted! I'm not feeling Emily Browning. But I'm loving Allison Miller. Yay!

JessicaLLWright said...

I voted for... Allison Miller!! All of them are good choices but I think she fis the bill perfect! And she's not too big that other people will compare her to her other roles like Emma Roberts and Dakota Fanning. As much as I love both of their work the might be too well know for that part. Plus Allison Miller is a brilliant actress!
(I'm international - so would love stickers and a bookmark!!):D

Jessy said...

I really like Lucy Hale, but something just says, "Not Grace." I had to go with Emma Roberts. she has the look down pat.

Cassie said...

I voted for Emma. She's the best at being sweet and stubborn.

for some reason my comment didn't post before. but I voted. Sorry it didn't work.

Olivia Carter said...

Hummm... some good picks from people! I voted!

jo_44 said...

Voted :)!!!!! So Excited for The Lost Saint!!!!!! But I ahte Waiting!!! :D

Grace Clyde said...

I think Matt Lanter is the best choice for Pete. He looks like he has that "triple threat" look. He also is handsome, but not too handsome where he would be a jerk, definitely a chemistry partner kind of nice. :)
