This was a Readathon Challenge that I liked but didn’t get around to over the weekend.
Cast the characters in the book you’re reading:
So a recap of the books I was reading
The Chalice- Nancy Bilyeau
Cote de Pablo from NCIS would make an excellent Joanna Stafford. Beautiful, with dark hair, intensely smart and a force to be reckoned with.
The others in that book are tougher. I can’t think of anyone quite scary enough to play Gardiner. Gertrude sort of made me picture Kristin Chenoweth, but I’m not completely sold there. Brother Edmund, I also have no idea. My picture of him was more about a general sense of broad shoulders under his robe, a rough voice, maybe a beard, rather than clearly picturing his face.
Ghost Hero by S.J. Rozan. I told Dad about the casting challenge, and he was stumped too. We both have a really clear picture of Lydia Chin, knowing that she’s Chinese American, not terribly tall, smart, sarcastic, and fierce. So I was trying to think of actresses. Lucy Liu crossed my mind and nope… I don’t think she’s easy enough to underestimate at first glance. And my picture of Lydia Chin is that she doesn’t look like a force to be reckoned with, but then you see her in action. I think the actress that could play her should be someone who isn’t already a celebrity.
