my dreamcast of Emrys

So, every once in a while I'll come across the question: Who would your dream cast be if your novel became a movie?

That question has always stumped me, because I've never really seen any actresses that really encompass what I envision Emrys (my main character in ALL THAT GLOWS) as being. She's redheaded (but it's a darker, fire red) with green eyes. Then personality-wise she's fiery and full of fight.

I'd never been able to find an actress who I thought embodied all these things. And then I started watching Doctor Who *cue crazy fan music and swooning here*.

You guys, Karen Gillan (who plays Amy Pond) would be the perfect Emrys. Not just in looks, but in personality as well. Emrys is a good deal like Amy in that she's fearless and will risk everything for those she loves. Karen captured that personality so well during her time on Doctor Who. And I think she'd do Emrys a great justice in a movie version of ALL THAT GLOWS. (Which will happen, you know, in my dreams).

Pretty much exactly how I see Emrys. Spot on.

As for the other characters in ALL THAT GLOWS, I still haven't found their actor soul-mates yet. But I'm working on it.

I cannot WAIT for you guys to meet Emrys for real this February!!


  1. Ah, Karen. She grew up in my home town and went to the same secondary school at me (though the gap between our years meant we never interacted). :)

    I do love her. It's nice to see a local lass do well for herself.

    1. That's so cool! I did read somewhere that she's from Inverness. Lovely town!

  2. Beautiful, red hair and green eyes. Love the combination...
