Camren Bicondova is a great young actress from the FOX TV series, GOTHAM. She portrays a young Selina Kyle (aka Catwoman) who befriends the young Bruce Wayne. She’s a street kid orphan with a lot of spunk and self-assurance. Some of this easy confidence would be reflected in her role as my main character, Briony Redwrell, in a movie version of GLOW OF THE FIREFLIES. Briony may question herself sometimes, unsure of who she was before the fire that stole her memories, but she’s stubborn and knows what she wants. When she goes after the nature spirit who could have answers to her hidden past, it is with all the tenacity and ferocity reminiscent of Selina Kyle. Plus, Camren’s wild light brown hair is just like Briony’s.
I’ve gotta be honest…I mostly picked this guy based off his looks. I know what you’re thinking, “but, Lindsey, that’s so shallow!” and you’re right, but that’s also why this is a dream cast. ;P
Best known for her role as Uma in Descendants 2 and 3, China Anne McClain is perfect for the role of Briony’s best friend, Izzie. She can play a sassy, obstinate character, whom Izzie definitely is, while also being the sister and confidante that Briony needs—a role that’s similar to her character in the CW show, Black Lightning.
Growing up in the late 90’s and early 2000’s I was a Will & Grace fan, which meant I was well acquainted with the charming actress, Blythe Danner. She has an energy on screen that has a mother’s touch, but also feisty, stubborn, and a bit mysterious, which is Briony’s estranged grandmother to a T!
Raysh is a fox spirit, so even though we couldn’t enjoy Richard Madden’s gorgeous face on screen, we could revel in his smooth, delectable voice dishing out sardonic lines right and left. Well known as Rob Stark from Game of Thrones, Richard Madden has taken on a variety of roles like Prince Charming in the live action 2015 Disney’s Cinderella and an ex-soldier suffering from PTSD in British political drama, The Bodyguard. What do all three roles have in common? Richard Madden has a helluva fine voice and I can’t imagine a better depiction for my smarmy fox spirit.
