Booking Through Thursday 6/13/2013

June 13, 2013

btt button Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme that focuses (mostly) on books and reading.

Do you ever sit and wonder who could be cast as your favorite characters? What actors do you think have done particularly excellent jobs with some of your favorite characters?

Yes!  Sometimes I wonder that very thing!  I can’t think of any good examples off the top of my head.  Somewhere along the way I had thought Kate Winslet would be a good choice, but I forget which character it was for.  It is fun, though, to wonder who would be cast if a book were turned into a movie.  As for actors who already played my fav characters, I think the casting in the Harry Potter movies was stellar and spot-on.  It’s like they found the actors who not only looked the part of the characters, but absolutely became those characters so that there is no separation between the two, if that makes any sense.  Hermione/Emma was particularly good casting.  I thought the casting in Lord of the Rings was also very good and liked the way those actors played their characters.
