I was asked to share my “dream cast” with you for my Phasms trilogy and I hope you find this as entertaining and enticing as it was fun!
So, first Kelsi. Kelsi is young (23) and I wrote very little about her appearance throughout the book. You get a hint here and there and you realize she’s not overly short or tall, has auburn-ish hair and is certainly pretty, but that’s about it. Accept for her eyes – her eyes are described repeatedly as a light, bright green. Lime green. Freaky green. I have a friend who’s daughter has eyes that shade of green and the are startling, arresting, beautiful and rare.
If I had to cast someone as Kelsi, it would be Evangeline Lily. It’s a combination of the eyes, the hair, the “more than girl-next-door” beauty. There’s a hint of mischief, a touch of sorrow and real zest for life that comes across to me when I see her in this picture…
I came across this picture of Gerard Butler and, despite the eye color, I knew immediately it was Aiden. I mean, that smile? The hair? Everything about him was what I pictured when I wrote Aiden’s character into the book…
There’s some seriously dark Christian Bale going on there, and he’s the only actor I can think of that could carry the real, emotional weight of DHM, or as Sarah dubs him, “The Dark Dude.”
Barbara was born and raised in Southern California, but left to explore the world courtesy of the U.S. Navy. After traveling the world, she forced herself to live a humble life in in San Francisco, New York and Norfolk, Virginia. She now calls San Diego home and you won’t pry her out with a crowbar.She would be the first to tell you her husband, Henry, is the inspiration for all the romance, and the real Charlie - who is as cute as he sounds in her books - is a terrorist. When not working for the U.S. Navy, she can be found running, reading or writing. She firmly believes a well rounded diet consists of coffee, scotch, chocolate, popcorn and Luna Bars. In that order. She's a graduate of CUNY and Penn State - and manages to write a decent line here and there despite those burdens. Social Media Links - I love hearing from my readers!
