DREAM MOVIE CAST FOR THE SONGMAKER NOVELS
Hi! I’m Elisabeth Hamill, the author of SONG MAGICK and TRUTHSONG, the Songmaker series. When I read, I definitely have an idea of what a character looks and sounds like in my head. They don’t necessarily match a living person. That’s the great part about reading, for me: the pictures in my head are so clear, it’s like watching a film. Sometimes, a character I’m writing is definitely drawn from life. Most recently, John Malkovich’s voice and sarcastic manner took over a character I wrote in an adult urban fantasy, and I still hear his voice when I read that character’s lines.
Would I like to see a movie of one of my books—especially if I got to cast it? Uh, let me think about it for a… YES.
So, yes, some of these folks would have to be aged up or down a little bit, but I’d pay to see this dream cast!
I love Camren Bicondova on Gotham, and I think she might make an excellent Telyn:
She has the right eyes, hair…I don’t know if she can play the harp or sing, but hey, movie magic, right?
Mithrais could be Sam Claflin. And if he brings his own sugar cubes, even better.
His parents would have to be gorgeous to make such a beautiful son. So…
The first person that comes to mind for Princess Marithiel is Charlize Theron. The golden beauty, the hauteur, the stink-eye…yeah. She’s perfect.
Gerard Butler, but aged up a little, as Gwidion. Hell, yes.
Telyn’s nemesis, Lord Vuldur, is a no-brainer for me. Liam Neeson can play around in the realm of crazy just fine.
Telyn’s charming cousin Emrys would definitely be Aidan Turner:
Gilmarion…Oh, it would have to be Lee Pace. He could play a dual role as King Amorion, too, since their resemblance is striking.
So, those are my dream casting choices for some of the major characters in The Songmaker Series. Anybody want to see this movie with me?
