Whispers From the Past by Elizabeth Langston: Guest Post!

Saturday, October 11, 2014
...that's not freedom at all. 

With the dangers of the past behind them, Mark and Susanna are reaching for what the future holds. As Mark's final year of high school draws to a close, his focus shifts to choosing a college and moving on. For Susanna, it's time to set down roots and realize dreams of her own. 

Yet the whispers from the past continue. A glimmer in the waterfall reveals messages from a dear, old friend. As she fights to resist their call, Susanna must finally confront the consequences that her choices have made across two centuries.

Goodreads Summary

The Dream Cast for Whispers from the Past

If I were the casting director for a film adaptation of the Whisper Falls series, I’d start with Mark. That actor has to be hot, athletic, and charming in a really nice, boy-next-door way. I’d want Brenton Thwaites.  (And his amber eyes are gorgeous!)

Susanna would be much harder to cast. She needs to have amazing chemistry with Mark—but still convey how quiet and repressed she is. The right actor would have to communicate so much emotion with just her eyes.  I visualize Susanna as having an ordinary appearance until she smiles—and then she’s beautiful.  I’m thinking Sarah Hyland (who is probably too pretty but that’s why we have makeup artists.) 

I'd also like to mention my reasoning for the casting of Benita and Jesse.  They’re a biracial couple where the girl is taller than the guy. She needs to exude “musician” while he needs to be an adorable geek. I did find two actors who could be great, although probably not quite enough difference in height. But then, she could just wear heels!

So, here is my dream cast:

Mark Lewis = Brenton Thwaites
Susanna Marsh = Sarah Hyland
Jethro Pratt = Karl Urban
Dorcas Pratt = Sierra McCormick
Benita Adams = Taylor Swift
Jesse = Tequan Richmond
Gabrielle Stone = Victoria Justice
Marissa Lewis = Sasha Spielberg
Isaac Saunders = Seth Numrich

  1. I'm so out of it. I only recognize Karl Urban's name. I look forward to reading this one.

  1. Gorgeous cover. I like the sound of this.

  1. Sarah Hyland and Taylor Swift are the only two cast members i know. Well, Victoria Justice sounds familiar but I can't put a face with it. Anyway, the book sounds like a good one. Very mysterious. I shall have to do some more research!
