My Cast of Characters

This post was inspired by a post on the fabulous, Darcy Drake’s blog.  Most writers look at movie stars and dream of who would play the parts of their characters in a movie version.  Sometimes this helps us in character descriptions and sometimes…well most of the time, it’s just for fun.  After seeing Darcy’s depiction of her characters on her blog, McGovy and I thought we would shamelessly copy her and do the same.  *grins* I usually take pieces of people, ideas from songs, and bits of passing conversation to create my characters; so this was a challenge.  I hope you like it.
Without further ado, here is my cast of characters for my book series:


As Devon Grey, Mad Duke of Thornwood:

Rufus Sewell

As Lily Phillips:

Rosamund Pike

The Villain of the story:

Does this even need a tag line?  I think not. ;)


As Holden Ellis, Lord Steelings:

Bradley Cooper
As Sue Green:

Scarlett Johansson with no makeup and no hair dye.  Sorry, Scarlett.  I’m evil like that.

The villain of the story:

Granny May from Word Girl.  Her knitting needles are weapons and she shoots petrified purse mints at her enemies…perhaps not in my story, but that’s just good stuff.  LOL


This is where my casting gets a little fuzzy since I’m plotting this book right now. So, bear with me…

As Andrew Clifton, Lord Amberstall:

I know I need a real person, but believe me this is surprisingly accurate.

As Katie Moore:

Molly C. Quinn

I hope you like my “Movie cast” of A Trick of the Ton. J  Does anyone have casting ideas for Amberstall?

LOL at Lord Amberstall! I don't know b/c he's not my "type" but he reminds me of a blonde George Clooney. Or like George and Brad Pitt had a love child. :D

Your women all look soooo Regency English rose. Perfect & I love it. Can't wait to share my peeps - who are soooo different than your peeps. This is fun!
