Some writing advice blogs suggest finding picture of who you imagine your characters to look like; therefore, I’ve been having a little bit of fun with this. However, if the characters look different in final Mirror of Sparrows, please don’t be irritated about it. Also, the people I picked are all ridiculously famous and good looking, so forgive me for being superficial. I’m procrastinating from doing real writing.
Colin: main character (though Molly is a tight second/originally she was the main deal) if I can pull off writing from a male POV. He’s a seventeen-year-old expert lock picker, has crazy star tattoos, fighter, needs to figure out where he belongs. I’m thinking young Christian Bale (my son and I just finished watching all his Batman movies).
Molly: sixteen-year-old who loves the rain, fighter, younger sister of Hugo. This came as an unexpected choice for me, but for some reason I’m going Kristen Stewart. I really like the persona she carries.
Hugo: twenty-seven-year-old champion stick fighter of Correnstrait, Molly’s older brother, rather mysterious personality. He’s a big deal. I’m thinking Hugo reminds me of Joaquin Phoenix. Originally I thought Joaquin would be Colin; but Colin appears a bit more light hearted.
Barnes: drum roll please, the antagonist…of sorts. This has been the hardest and most fascinating character to discover. I’ve been trying to figure him out for a while (originally, he was a woman), but when this part comes together I think it’s gonna all fit together. Anyway, I’m going to go with the one and only, Mr. Colin Firth. Don’t ask why; I’m not entirely sure yet myself.
Uncle Felix: Colin’s awesome uncle. I’m thinking Hugh Jackman. I love Hugh Jackman; I had to put him in here somewhere.
Peace: Molly’s bestie. Dreaming big with Scarlett Johansson.
There are a few other important characters, but I think this is a good start for now! If you read this far, thanks!! And now you know a bit more about my book : )
