A warning from M. C. Rae before you see her chosen cast:

"I don’t watch very many movies or very much TV.

What I do watch tends to be non-mainstream, so…"

TALLIS – Amy Jackson (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amy_Jackson)         
Despite the name that may make Ms. Jackson sound like your next door neighbor, unless you’re into Bollywood, you probably haven’t seen her in anything. Ms. Jackson has that subtle beauty and exotic look that I envision Tallis having, though we’d need to get her some contacts to have Tallis’s eyes that are “as green as the plains of Kêrsium.”


TARAMEEN - Jean-Luc Bilodeau (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1700638/)
Honestly, I had to go out on a limb on this one. I’m not familiar with this actor, but he’s got a look on his face that blends both Tarameen’s desire to learn, and his utter conviction in that which he knows to be true.


SHAHLAMIN – Nestor Carbonell (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0004801/)
And just as hard as it was for me to pick out my Tarameen, so was it that easy to pick out my Shahlamin, the villain of my mythical world. Nestor has a look that you know is capable of profound, but brilliant evil, and oh, he’s going to look so good being bad. I first became familiar with him on Lost, and have scouted him out in other works since.

JUNO – Dakota Fanning (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0266824/)
Juno is petite, blithe, and elegant. Everything I’ve seen Ms. Fanning in tells me she’d fill this perfectly. Juno has an ethereal spirit which competes with the air for lightness, but below is a storm brewing. Ms. Fanning can handle the spectrum. She’d be a supreme Juno.

  2. I'm not great at casting but I'm interesting in how characters are cast. Some of them in this post is new and interesting.

    1. I agree, I can't cast very well :/

      But I am still opinionated about casting choices ;)
