a. unknown model as Seònaid "Bonnie" Alleway- you might have seen this picture floating around lately in regards to The Wulver's Rose. Sadly, I don't know the name of this lovely redhead, but she definitely looks like Bonnie!
b. Jude Law as Lauchlan- This ended up being the first casting decision I came to, which is funny because I usually have rather rotten luck casting my heroes.
c. unknown model as Róis- another lovely model whose identity I'm unable to find, but those adorable curls remind me very much of my character!
d. Katie McGrath as Morag- This was one casting that I had in mind perhaps even before I wrote the story--just look up pictures of Morgana from Merlin, and you've got (beautiful) Morag just as I pictured her.
e. Kevin McKidd as Calum Alleway- I honestly don't really know who this guy is. I just googled "Scottish actors" and found him. *shrugs* But he resembles Calum, which is really all that matters.
f. Deborah Kerr as Sorcha Alleway- hey, I said it was a dream cast, didn't I? I think this casting choice might be because there's something about Sorcha that reminds me of Anna from the King and I. You know, the kinda-likable-but-kinda-bossy type. Also, I think Sorcha looks like her mother, so this is a pretty good picture of what the deceased Mrs. Alleway looked like as well.
g. Sean Connery as Mr. Alleway- I couldn't find anyone who looked like Mr. Alleway to me. Finally, when I was googling "Scottish actors" (see above) I saw him and well...why wouldn't you cast him?
h. Sophie Turner as Margaret "Maisie" Alleway- This is another "perfect" casting, because Sophie Turner looks exactly like I picture Maisie. I love it when that happens :)
Also, if anyone is wondering what Lauchlan in beast form looks like, here's a couple drawings of a wulver:
Not particularly pleasant-looking, is he? Poor guy. :(
Also, if you haven't seen it, you can take the Which Five Enchanted Roses Heroine Are You? quiz! I got Bonnie...perhaps that's not surprising? ;) And don't forget to check out the Launch Week at the Tales of Goldstone Wood blog! I'm being interviewed there tomorrow, so check it out!
