Casting your Characters.

So I did a search on this forum and can't find a duplicate of this post and if there is one, can't post on it anyway cause I don't want to bring out the resurrection baba yaga by doing the forbidden and rezzing a post. So here we are, brand spanking new.

I saw a post by Ghazan where he had pics of Actors who would play his char, George Clooney as Gha'leon! It was a fun idea to do this and so I thought I'd make a post where everyone could post who they would cast for their chars.

Of course my choices can only be done using a TARDIS as some of the people I have chosen for my chars, I have chosen them in their younger days.

Santana would be played by Aishwarya Rai. Exotic light eyes with a olive complexion, pretty rare. She also has that innocent and naive look that could easily be hiding other motives.

----

Alourdes would be played by Naya Rivera. Mostly for her bi-racial look since Alourdes is biracial. She'd have to wear some contacts though, Lore's eyes are grey-blue. Looks mischievious and very much is mischievious in Glee, but we wouldn't be giving her the same script here lol.

----

Bianchi would be played by the Return to the Blue Lagoon version of Mila Jovovich. One word, savage. What more savage than being stranded on a island not knowing anything about the rest of the world than a poor Mila Jovovich stuck with Brian Krause. XD I loved this movie btw.

----

Kirian would be played by..
I haven't found a actress for Kirian because it's hard to find a char with her dark red hair and olive complexion, naturally. I'll update if one comes to mind. I wanted to pick Debra Messing but the hair color is a bit off, though I loveeeee Debra's hair! XD

You're all up, who would you cast to be your characters and why?

Aylaa = Kate Beckensale (though she's 5in too tall)


Zarasmina = Molly Quinn (even though she's a bit older than Mina is supposed to be)


edit: Now with Pictures!!

Karmic = younger, reddish-purple skinned, Angelina Jolie.  Definitely.  The curvier version, long-ass Lara Croft hair..those senuous lips.  Oh yea, that's Karmic. ;)

((also I think this area is reserved for OOC discussion about the Silent Throne stuff.  General OOC stuff I would think goes back under the Cantina area?))

I never really thought about it before.

That is, not until I saw this picture of Lucy Liu. And I was like "...huh. She kinda reminds me of... ... ... Vyuka!"
I think It's the freckles :3

I totally forgot how much I love her.

The only two characters I ever gave this much thought toward were the Coltons. If you've ever seen the Smugglers Coalition video that Jaade did, you know who'd be cast as Jace in a heartbeat:



As for Saura, she was created to be the Star Wars version of Kaylee from Firefly, though she got a lot darker in SWTOR. I'd still keep with Jewel Staite, tho:



Drexa, however, is a tough one to nail down. She'd have to be versatile, to pull off sharp and snarky, as well as sensitive and vulnerable. Hmm...

Edit: Well, I think we found our Drexa:



Edit the Second: I mean seriously, Anne Hathaway has Drexa down pat:

Saura Colton - Former Republic slicer/spy
Jace Colton - Captain of the Second Star (retired)
Drexa Nahir - Akar Enclave Master (deceased)

I guess look-wise, Remmi would be Emma Watson 8-10 years from now. She's got the hair (well, had when it was longer), the eyes, and most importantly, her smirk. I guess I could just cast her now in a movie about Remmi's younger adventures when she got into smuggling.



Voice-wise, Kath Soucie from the game is pretty good. I'd go with someone else, but I'm just not sure who. They'd need to be able to pull off smooth and sarcastic, and have that hint of a "whiskey voice" rasp. XD

Maybe it's just wishful thinking... But I would thing the closest actor to Saberlain would have to be Sam Worthington, with different hair of course. Anyone think otherwise?

(Can't get pictures to work at the moment.   :umm:)

For Semah, there is only one actress I'd trust to do "dry" to the correct level:


Digitally Age-Adjusted Dame Maggie Smith

For reference, here's her in 1978, at roughly 54 yrs, and in 1952 (18 yrs):


Look at the character in that face! Maggie, you continue to be a fox. (I require a cameo of old Semah in the prologue and epilogue.)

EDIT: See second post for the perfect Kyp actor.

Adam Sandler is Aiden though. Jean is Robin Williams from Mrs. Doubtfire.

EDIT2:

There is only one George Clooney in ToR and it sure as hell is not Gharwyl.

I picture Kyp as a young John Wayne, or possibly Johnny Cash. How old is Kyp anyway?
