This morning I’m delighted to have Reese Monroe, author of Marked by Hades, drop by the virtual offices to share her dream cast. I’d go see this!
It’s every author’s dream to get the call that their book has been optioned and actually makes it to screen, so why not come up with dream cast, right?
I picked some big stars…but it’s about the dream right? **wink**
Justin Bradford. My 911-year-old Gatekeeper Companion faces his struggles head on in Marked by Hades for sure. He’s the younger brother to Theo (by twelve minutes), and with that younger brother role, he’s a little more…feisty.
For Justin, I picked Chris Hemsworth. Yeah, he would need to have black hair, but I would LOVE him to play my Justin.
I think of THOR when I envision Chris as Justin. Especially when Justin is in the thick of battle against the demons—against the idea of a Mate.
And of course the leather jacket helps, too. Love me some leather.
For Yvonne (aka Dyre) I picked Anita Briem.
I picture Yvonne as someone with inner strength, who maybe looks a little dainty on the outside, but once she finds her confidence, bam, it’s ballgame!
And Yvonne wakes up on a park bench without any knowledge of who—or what she is. All she knows is that if she touches any living thing, they turn to dust…and she had to learn this the hard way.
So she turns inward, shielding herself from everyone around her by wearing leather as her protective barrier. But all she wants to do is touch people, especially those who have such bright, alluring auras…like Justin!
Halena…oh my poor Halena.
I think Jaimie Alexander would make a great Halena. There’s so much emotion in Jaimie’s eyes, and her acting fits, too.
My Halena is so broken and…harsh, but she’s wicked-strong! We learn a little more about her in this book, but as her character developed while writing the books, she merited her own.
So, book three is all her…
Who are some of your favorite actors right now? I’m totally hooked on Jai Courtney right now. I know he was a total jerk in Divergent, but…oh, he could totally play one of my characters I’m writing right now… *Le Sigh*
If you’ve read any of the Bound by Hades novels, who would you pick for the characters?
Marked By Hades
Tagline: One choice away from eternity…
Blurb: For 911 years, Gatekeeper companion Justin Bradford has denied the possibility of being mated to only one woman. He enjoys them all too much to settle down. So when he feels his mate’s Ahavah mark surface, his first instinct is to ignore it. But when he sees the leather-clad beauty in need of his help that’s easier said than done…
Yvonne wakes up naked on a cold park bench in a small town with no memory of who—or what—she is. All she knows is the gentle man who woke her was turned to dust when she touched him. And now the strange mark that appeared on her shoulder throbs in the presence of the raven-haired man now offering to help her…
As Justin and Yvonne navigate the mystery of her past, their bond grows, but the secrets they discover and the sacrifices that must be made could be enough to rip them apart for eternity.
