The Frozen Star’s Dream Cast
Hi everyone! Crystal here from the Jessie Lane duo and today I’ve stopped by Harlie’s Books to talk about the dream cast I have for the Star Series characters in both The Burning Star and its sequel The Frozen Star. The characters (and the story) for The Burning Star came to me in a rush. There was no slow buildup of plotline or development. Nope. It was like BAM! Here we are, and you will tell our story. Melissa, my sister-in-law and co-author for this series, continued to tell each of the characters stories beautifully in The Frozen Star. So, without further ado, I’d like to introduce you to some of the characters as we see them.
For Kay I was inspired a bit by my youngest daughter. Red curly hair and blue eyes that look wise beyond her years. Freckles on her face and creamy alabaster skin. So, to find someone who I felt might look like a grown up version of my little girl wasn’t the easiest thing to do, but I think I came close. Sophie Turner plays Sansa Stark on Game of Thrones, but if you gave her some wild curls to that gorgeous red hair on her head, then she would definitely be my pick for Kay. Delicate, gorgeous features, but all the inner strength and spark of a redhead.
Ryan’s dream cast was a very easy pick for me. Hands down Alexander Ludwig. Have you ladies seen that young man? Soooo handsome! Whoa… that sounded almost cougar like, but it’s the truth. Beautiful blue eyes, blond hair, tall and flat out handsome. Imagine him the cocky swagger of a guy who’s used to getting anything and everything he wants and there you have the Prince of the Fae Summer Court. Can I just say that I love that the cocky guy gets thrown for a loop by the shy, awkward young woman that Kay is? They’re an example of that “opposites attract” theory.
Nick was probably the hardest character for me to dream cast because no one seemed to come close to how I see him in my head. Just when I was getting frustrated and desperate… Colton Haynes happened. Granted, in real life the guy is twenty-five and his hair isn’t the silky black locks that my character wears, but imagine him as an alpha, confident werewolf and BAM – Nick is born in the flesh.
When dream casting Kira, Emilia Clarke who plays Daenerys on Game of Thrones came to mind. Graceful beauty with a core of steel. In all honesty, she’s so broken that she’s willing to sacrifice everything for peace, including death. There’s someone who can pull her back from the edge, but there’s no way for her to whether he wants to honestly care for her as he claims, or use her as everyone else has so far.
Prince Kane, son of Queen Mab of the Fae Winter Court is hundreds of years old. He’s seen many things so far in his lifetime, but nothing intrigues him as much as one young almost eighteen year old Kira does. Some might judge him for the age difference between them, but Kira’s physical age doesn’t match up the age of soul. When writing Kane I saw him quite clearly as Orlando Bloom in his role as Legolas from Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit. Long blonde hair, ethereal eyes and a toned physique of a trained warrior.
That’s all for this dream cast ladies! I hope you enjoyed it. Tell me, if you’ve read The Burning Star or The Frozen Star, do my picks match how you envisioned the characters? And if you haven’t read The Star Series yet, maybe you’ll tell me what you think of my picks anyways? A huge thank you to Harlie’s Books for letting me stop by today! I hope you all will check out Jessie Lane’s latest release, The Frozen Star, from our YA/NA Paranormal Romance & Fantasy series! Happy Reading!
