For this week, we answered a short questionnaire about our novellas then did a celebrity casting if we chose to do so. I wasn’t originally planning on doing the casting but, well… I just had to. I’ve done more celebrity researching in the last day than I have ever in my entire life. 🙂
Question 1: What song would be the film score for your story?
I would say “White Teeth Teens” by Lorde. This song can be interpreted in different ways—and I think it’s meant to be that way—but I feel like the theme of it fits my novel well.
Question 2: What book would be your main character’s favorite?
There’s no book that really jumps out as the answer. I think she would like to read thought provoking books with themes of survival and self-realization, in which case she would probably like The Hunger Games. Divergent might also appeal to her because it deals with the idea of categorizing people, although it’s strange to think of her reading dystopian books when she lives in a dystopian world. Because of her experiences, she would be drawn to books that discuss memory loss, such as The Lost Hero, The Maze Runner, and We Were Liars.
Question 3: What TV shows would they watch?
This is honestly hard for me to answer because I don’t watch a lot of TV. (I watch exactly one TV show). Depending on her mood, my main character would either watch all of the popular shows to know what people are talking about, or rebel against all TV. No, there would be no in between. Ella would for sure like documentaries.
Well, here’s something I’m really bad at, since I kind of take pride in not knowing anything about celebrities. I know next to nothing about these people and chose most of them for the way they look. As a bonus, I chose a theme song for each character, since I usually think of those anyway.
Willow Shields as Rowan/Lacey:
Song: “Who You Are” by Jessie J (though I prefer Ed Sheeran’s cover so that’s the one you get.)
Elizabeth Gilles as Rowena:
Song: “No Angle” by Birdy (I know it makes NO SENSE now, but trust me, it will.)
Dylan O’Brian as Chase:
Song: “Monster” by Imagine Dragons
Haley Tju as Ella:
Song: “Am I Wrong” by Nico Vinz
Halston Sage as Bonny:
Song: “Popular” from Wicked (I’m not sure if this is the best song, but I couldn’t think of something better.)
David Huttlestone as Caleb/Leo:
Song: “Misguided Ghosts” by Paramore
