I do love character casting. But Jessa, I'm sorry, Jennifer Lawrence cannot play Ever in the movie version, because she'll be busy playing Indigo (from my book). Sorry...
If I were living the ultimate dream, and not only was I facing the awesomeness of a movie deal, but I was ALSO allowed to cast my characters myself, I would cast Emma Roberts as Ever Van Ruysdael.
If she was busy (what?) I would cast Aimee Teegarden. I adore her in Friday Night Lights. ADORE.
Both Emma Roberts and Aimee Teegarden have the right face – innocent and pure, with a hint of mischief. They would have to have their hair dyed black, and probably gain a few pounds (Ever is curvier than most seventeen-year-olds) … throw in some brown contacts, and dress them in black leggings, black chucks, and a baggy tank top, and VOILA! The perfect Ever Van Ruysdael. In my humble opinion.
And if they weren’t available – how they could have something better to do, I have no idea – I think Jennifer Lawrence with black hair and brown contacts would be another really great option.
So I guess we’ll see where that goes, huh? One can hope!!
I will be casting the supporting roles over on Juliana Haygert’s blog next week (10/11)! Be sure to pop on over to see pictures of my choices for the perfect Frankie, Toby and Jessie!
Of course, it doesn't help that he’s dead, and waking up to his ghost every day has made moving on nearly impossible.
Frustrated and desperate for something real, Ever finds herself falling for her hot new neighbor Toby. His relaxed confidence is irresistible, and not just Ever knows it. But falling for Toby comes with a price that throws Ever’s life into a whirlwind of chaos and drama. More than hearts are on the line, and more than Ever will suffer.
Some girls lose their hearts to love.
Some girls lose their minds.
Ever Van Ruysdael could lose her soul.
