“Hallows End” is the first book in the Prophecy Trilogy as well as the debut novel for Sarah Chase. Since I wrote the book while visualizing certain actors and actresses in the roles of my main characters, I thought it would be fun to share those. If you’ve already read Hallows End, please comment below as to whom you pictured in the various roles. AND, if you haven’t read Hallows End yet…it’s available right now in the Kindle Book Store for only $2.99! 😉
Actress: Olivia Wilde (TRON: Legacy, Cowboys & Aliens)
A sexy vigilante police detective who goes from hunting immortal beings to saving the world alongside them. I honestly can’t think of anyone who could fill the role of Sarah Chase better than Olivia Wilde. I’ve been a fan of hers since she was on the TV Series House M.D. and I believe it’s time that she headline a movie.
Dr. Albert Nemitz
Actor: Max Von Sydow (The Exorcist, Needful Things)
When I first started creating the character of Dr. Albert Nemitz, it was Max Von Sydow who immediately came to mind. His role as ‘The Tracker’ in “What Dreams May Come” exudes the same kind of wisdom and heroism that Dr. Nemitz exhibits as the founder of Hallows End and protector of the immortal races.
Actress: Lana Parrilla (Once Upon a Time)
I only made it through the first season of “Once Upon a Time”, but if it weren’t for Lana Parilla I might not have even bothered to watch past episode one. She makes being evil look sexy and deserves to play a character like Elise on the big screen where she’d be allowed to explore her full acting range under the freedom of an ‘R’ rating.
Actor: Gerard Butler (300, Olympus has Fallen)
Who else but Gerard Butler could I possibly hope for to portray Lord Artair? Butler is one of my favorite actors in Hollywood and the fact that he’s Scottish had a huge impact on not only how I wrote the character of Lord Artair, but also as to where the original story of the prophecy took place (Scotland).
Actress: AnnaSophia Robb (Bridge to Terabithia, Soul Surfer)
Sadeana calls for the perfect balance of innocence, toughness and an almost ‘esoteric’ presence on screen. After watching AnnaSophia Robb carry the movie “Soul Surfer”, I was sold this young lady had what it took to be the ‘Child of Prophecy’. Plus, those blue eyes…she’s got to have the genetic make-up of Atlantis within her, right?
Actress: Aisha Tyler (Ghost Whisperer, Archer)
In order to fill the role of Diana, the Sheriff of Hallows End, you need both a mentally and physically powerful woman. Aisha Tyler fits the mold perfectly as she stands at 6′ with an impressive physique and resume that includes numerous television roles, a role as Mother Nature in the Santa Clause sequels & co-hosting The Talk.
Actor: Stephen Root (Office Space, King of the Hill)
Stephen Root is perhaps one of the most diverse talents in Hollywood, having over 180 acting credits to his name since 1988. It wasn’t until he showed up in True Blood, however, that he caught my attention and inspired the story of “Stanley” (which was actually a short story before I wrote Stanley’s character into Hallows End).
Actress: Audrey Kitching (Fashion Blogger & Model)
I know…this casting choice is ‘way’ out there. I have no idea if Audrey Kitching can actually act, but she’s certainly no stranger to the camera and her look is ‘spot on’ for how I pictured Tremissa. Even her facial expression here captures the mischievous & suggestive nature of the “Candy Shoppe” boutique owner.
