So *ahem* I meant to spend today almost totally writing, but of course ended up getting distracted. This time with casting my story. After figuring out which actors/actresses looked like several of my characters, I then had to look up pictures on the internet that matched my characters' personas. Obviously. *g*
Was only able to find a couple for Christopher---and only approximate matches at that---but had much better luck with Georgiana. As for the others --- gosh, have barely tried yet. I did find Anne de Bourgh, or rather, the actress I think looks most like my
Anne de Bourgh, but no pictures that matched Anne yet. And I had someone in mind for Darcy, but forgot who it was while in the middle of looking up Anne. Hm.sweet, innocent GeorgianaA more mature Georgiana--maybe ten years after my story
(yes, I know these are the wrong time period.)
As I said, Christopher is harder to pin down. In my head, he's sort of a weird amalgam of Johnny Depp and Christian Bale. Mostly Johnny Depp, though. And I can't think of any older actors to match Olivia de Havilland, because nobody back then was really the type. The leading men were always so dapper and debonair then. However, trying to find a picture of young!Johnny that matches young!Christopher is next to impossible---mostly because JD had such a baby face back then! (Case in point.
) But there aren't really any younger actors that have the right look. Mature!Johnny isn't any easier because he almost always sports era-inappropriate hair or other styles. And although Johnny has aged remarkably well, he still looks older than Christopher's 21. I was able to find these two pictures, however, that at least convey the correct air and attitude.hostile!Christopher
(and not just 'cause he's seeing red. hee hee.)watchful and wary
Anyway, back to the writing.
ETA: Oh, this one's good.
That is, if you ignore the horribly inappropriate attire. And the earring. And the tattoo. Grrr. Anyway, it's almost thin enough to be Christopher (really can't find anybody that emaciated, unless it's Jude Law, who's always seemed really skinny to me), and about the right age, too. So I figure I can forgive the whole 20th century-ness of it. After all, I forgave Olivia de Havilland's period-inappropriate styles. :)
