Casting Call Guest Post
DEFIANCE. I actually didn't have any one actor or actress in mind for my characters as I was writing, but after I finished the book, I went looking for people who might fit the bill. Ready? Here we go!
Rachel: Danielle Pannebaker with blue contacts. She's got the attitude and the fierceness. Girl can be bada$$ when she wants to. Remember her in Mr. Brooks? I rest my case.
Logan: Chris Pine! Sweet, sexy boy-next-door with brains beneath his charm. Oh, yes.
The Commander: Bill Nighy in his Viktor from UNDERWORLD days. Imagine him deciding you were in between him and what he wanted. Remorseless and brutal and scary enough to make most people cower before he even opens his mouth. Proof:
Oliver: Morgan Freeman. This one took a lot of thought. I needed a man who could portray both warm welcoming love and quiet inner strength. I think Morgan does both.
Quinn: Kiowa Gordon. Capable, strong, and secretive. :)
Willow: Vanessa Hudgens. Confident, athletic, and outspoken.
Sylph: Kim Cloutier, but with curly hair. She can pull off the innocence and big heart that are at Sylph's core but still show that Sylph's loyalty and ability to love others give her a tremendous inner strength.
Melkin: Christian Bale (I mean, while we're dreaming, right?). His intensity and ability to change his physical appearance from buff to painfully thin is perfect for the character. Plus, he has that brooding thing going for him. And, he's Batman. That doesn't have anything to do with Defiance, but ... he's BATMAN.
Jared: David Wenham. He just looks so ... self-assured and capable. This isn't a man who'll take it easy on the daughter he loves. Not if he wants her to survive in their world.
Nola: Paula Patton. I needed an actress who embodied friendly grace and calm intelligence with a backbone of quiet courage.
Okay, I've cast all the main characters and most of the secondaries! What do you think of my choices?
