As most of you know, the amazingly talented Dan Angel has picked up the rights, and between all the stuff going on in the background that I have no control in or a part of, (and there is a lot) there is still something you and I can do to help push this forward as we try to find a good home for the Hollows. If we can nail down talent, the chance to nail down a home increases dramatically.
So, over the next few weeks, I am asking your opinion on what TV actor you think will play the best character, and so we don’t lose your good ideas and to make it easier for you to discuss with each other in a threaded format, I’d like to ask you to drop them here at the blog instead of FB or twitter. (Though if you drop them there as well, they will be seen twice as often!)
To help reduce the confusion, we’re going to take it one character at a time. Save your ideas for Kisten or Trent! Today, we’re going to talk about Rachel. Everyone’s idea is valid, so no poo-pooing other reader’s ideas. Me, I usually focus on how a character reacts more than their physical characteristics, so my ideas are usually way off from everyone else’s. I really want to know who you see.
With that in mind, a short summation of Rachel.
Pale skin, freckles that come and go with her charmed pinky ring. Wild red hair that is usually tamed to a sleek silkiness under a charm. Athletic build, expressive features. Every thought she has shows on her face. Able to take a fall and give a solid hit. Able to laugh at herself, and take it as well as dish it out. Dry sense of humor. Painfully strong moral compass, but has been known to steal a candy bar or two if she can rationalize it. Unique, often inappropriate dresser unless working, and then its leather–sometimes inappropriate as well. Takes things to heart, gives too much but has been taken advantage of too many times to be hoodwinked easily. Like dangerous men, and maybe dangerous women. More empathy than is probably prudent due to troubled past. Will go out of her way to down bullies. Accepts everyone as having something to offer because she’s been sidelined too many times. Smart, but too erratic to get the formal degree. Good with both schools of magic. She’s the girl next door with pixy dust in her hair, a wand in her hand, and butt-kicking boots on her feet.
So, your picks? I’m looking at Kate McNamara…
