Sadly CW decided to make ‘Vampire Diaries’ into a TV-series and not ‘Secret Circle’ – also a book series by L.J. Smith. Perhaps because there are no vampires in?
Anyway – I enjoyed reading ‘Secret Circle’ – a story about witches – more than ‘Vampire Diaries’.
I love the twists, the romance, the horror … everything! That’s why I decided to cast the coven.
For all out there who don’t know the books here a short summary by ljsmith.net
Shy, sixteen-year-old Cassie falls in love with the mysterious Adam before moving to New Salem, thinking she’ll never see him again. But as it turns out, Adam is there, too, at a high school where a strange elite rule. Beautiful fair-haired Diana, whom Cassie learns to love as a sister; voluptuous dark Faye, who wants to turn Cassie into her puppet. The greatest surprise: Cassie, like the other elite boys and girls, is a witch! And then Cassie discovers that Adam is actually the boyfriend of gentle Diana, now her best friend and the leader of the coven!
Adam and Cassie have sworn not to love each other for the sake of their beloved leader Diana. But Faye has caught them in their one embrace. Now she uses it to blackmail Cassie, forcing Cassie to lie to Diana and to dig up the strange crystal skull that gives them all such dangerous visions. Meanwhile, students are being murdered, and the witches are under suspicion. And Faye wants from Cassie the ultimate betrayal: her vote for Faye as coven leader.
Faye rules the Circle, while Diana reels from Cassie’s apparent treachery. Cassie and Adam are drawn more strongly together than ever. A new principal appears who seems to know all the Circle’s secrets and is dedicated to persecuting them. Cassie, no longer the shy girl she was only a few months ago, takes charge in solving the murders, the mystery of the crystal skull, and the true meaning of the Secret Circle. Her reward is her dream come true.
And here are my ideas for casting ‘Secret Circle’:
Cassie (Cassandra) Blake, the blue eyed main-actress with light brown hair. First she don’t know that she is a witch but later she becomes very important.
I’d love to see Emily VanCamp playing her.
Adam Conant, the blue-gray eyed boy who is in love with Cassie but don’t want to.
And he has auburn hair just like Gregory Smith.
Diana Meade, the most gorgeous fairylike girl with green eyes and blonde hair.
Thora Birch seems to me like perfect to become Cassies best friend.
Faye Chamberlain, the ‘bad’ girl with golden eyes and black hair.
While reading I always pictured Krysten Ritter being her.
Nick Armstrong, my favorite male-character in the book. He has brown eyes and hair and I think Jared Padalecki would be a good choice for playing him.
Chris and Doug Henderson, the twins, could be played by Kevin and Joe Jonas
and acting as their little sister Kori Henderson I want to see Emily Osment
And here are my thoughts about the ‘minor’ members of the coven:
Sean Dulany played by Scott Porter
I imagine Deborah Armstrong like Missy Peregrym
Melanie Glaser could be like Jessica Stroup
Laurel Quincey would be great if Vanessa Lengies will play her
Suzan Whittier played by Amanda Bynes
Last but not least – the bad boy: Black John.
I guess Bill Nighy is so well known playing the dark parts that he also could do this evil, strange powerful one very good.
What do you all think? Is my casting a nice one – do you agree with the actors I chose?
Is it possible to destroy the evil with this coven?
