My book, Demon Within is an epic fantasy filled with plots & schemes, secrets & lies and sizzling bedroom scenes to equal Game of Thrones!! It is currently in the top 100 audio books on Amazon narrated by Scott Richard Ehredt…and the dream of a movie is ever in my head, here are my thoughts.
There can be only ONE actor to play Kai of
Darkmide.. although at a pinch, I could stretch to two…who??
JASON MOMOA for Kai of Darkmide.
Standing six feet seven, a wall of muscle graced with tanned skin that glowed beneath the morning sun, Kai was a rare breed. Handsome, despite the scars across his chin and brow, his features are stunning. The mesmerizing stare from deep green eyes pierce through to the soul. Dark blonde hair falls past his shoulders; a few small sections are braided, and fastened by leather threads and beads. Highlighted with silver and gold strands that, when caught by the gathering breeze, shimmered in the sun’s rays like a sea of gems. On his massive arms Kai wore large, ornately decorated bands of gold, fashioned especially for him by the smiths of Darkmide.
You see it?? I do…every goddam day!!!
EMILIA CLARKE for Eloise of Brightstone.
Eloise was gifted like her mother, able to control the elements; making snow or hail, forming rain clouds or bringing wind. It was a rare gift from her mother’s line going back generations.
When I was writing Demon Within, the image of Sabe was Luke Pasqualina, however, every time I wrote more lines Santiago Cabrera popped in my head… so..
SANTIAGO CABRERA to play Sabe
‘Not a good start to the day, but eventful at least.’ Sabe chuckled as he casually rested his boots on a stool and crossing one foot over the other, he poured wine from a pitcher on the table, ‘And there I was, thinking it would be a quiet morning.’
GEMMA ATHERTON is Sabe’s feisty sister, Kiera
Kai shook his head slowly. ‘This is going to be a disaster, and if she resembles a cow’s backside in any way, I swear I’ll pay your sister to slice off your balls.’
‘Whose balls am I slicing off?’
CHRIS HEMSWORTH is Jace of Stonegarth (He is the 2nd choice for Kai, if Momoa is unavailable *snort*)
Her son, at six feet four inches, stood as tall as his father, but much broader and heavier built. There wasn’t a woman in the town that hadn’t fallen for his alluring smile, or his green eyes, laced with mischief. Kind and caring, Ellanor knew he would make a good husband to whoever snared him.
‘Which of the tanner’s daughters is drawing your attention, or are they both too tempting to choose just one?’
‘I’m sure I have no idea what you’re talking about mother.’ A mischievous grin breached his face as he bowed, then he made for the door.
We’re cookin now!!!!! There are quite a few characters in this epic story, and it deserves the very best of the acting world….just sayin’… but I digress….keep reading for more characters…
HAYDEN PANETTIERE is so cute, she is perfect for Nissa
Eloise reached for Nissa’s hand, and squeezed it tight while they watched Sabe leave.
‘He’s friendly.’ Her smirk
made Nissa giggle.
‘I agree, and dashing.’
‘Well, I wouldn’t go that far, but he is attractive, I’ll give you that.’ She bumped her shoulder to Nissa’s. ‘I think he likes you.’
Nissa didn’t speak, but managed a blushing smile.
SCOTT RICHARD EHREDT for Leon. (Listen to the audio version of Demon Within and you’ll know why)
Leon paused before turning to Roulan with raised brows. ‘I’ve taken every precaution I can. Your father is eager for this alliance and I’m told that Kai of Darkmide is equally keen to take a wife.’ Calmly turning back to the fire, he continued to move the ashes around. ‘I don’t see any problems.’
TOM HIDDLESTON for Roulan, Eloise’s brother
Roulan had always been wary of Leon; knowing his father preferred his company to his own, he was jealous. He strived to get his father’s attention, but always felt he was a disappointment. Now, it didn’t matter so much; detached and lacking of emotion towards his father, he concentrated his efforts on making his own mark on the world.
There are more characters that are involved in the main story, but too many to list…however…I feel the need to show you just one more character …. the angel Anael ….
LEE PACE playing the angel Anael
He has a relatively small part in the first book, but trust me… he’s got a HUGE role in the last book!! Shhh…secrets…no spoilers….
‘ANAEL!’ Kai cursed.
Kai’s head fell back in despair against the rocks where he rested, as rivers of tears flowed down his bruised cheeks.
‘You are hurting, Kai of Darkmide.’
Snapping his head towards the voice, Kai pushed away from the rock and gazed at the figure.
Appearing taller than himself and surrounded by a glowing light, the form of a man slowly appeared.
‘You are Anael?’
The seraph nodded and stepped closer.
Kai straightened when Anael edged nearer. The once scarred skin across his back tingled. Fully aware it was Anael who’d healed him after the battle with Adramelech, Kai could only assume his body remembered the effects of the healing from the seraph, and shivered at the sensation as it increased.
‘I need your help.’
Examining Kai’s bruised face and body, the angel cocked his head to the side, ‘So it would appear.’
What do you think? You like my choices??
I’m happy for Joss Whedon to have some part in the movie, and of course…the fabulously talented James Cameror Ridley Scott. *grins*
I’m just going to wait… all back of the bus n shit for someone to buy the movie rights..then we are truly cookin!
