With the recent cast announcement for the Shadow and Bone Netflix show it had me thinking about who I would cast for my favourite characters from some other books.
But first I need to fangirl about the fact that BEN BARNES WILL BE THE DARKLING. Look I really don’t know how anyone expects me to root for Alina, Mal and Nikolai when the Darkling is Ben Barnes. I’m sorry it’s just not possible.
Team Darkling all the way.
And I will hear some of my favourite Darkling lines and Ben Barnes will be the one saying it! I. AM. DECEASED.
Also I am ready for all the Ben Barnes as the Darkling fanart. Send them all to me!
I apologise in advance to anyone who follows me on my social media because this is all I will be talking about on there. Especially as Ben is 38 so I can cry over him all I want without it being all creepy.
ANYWAYS back to why I started writing this post! Here are some of my fancasts:
1 Ranveer Singh as Muntadhir from The City of Brass – Look he is the only person I will accept as Muntadhir and there is nothing you can do to change my mind.
2 Mena Massoud as Jamshid from The City of Brass – He has the cuteness down in exactly the way that I would imagine from Jamshid and I think he would be great playing Jamshid.
3 Margot Robbie as Aelin from Throne of Glass – I think she could pull of Aelin’s confidence and sass and look amazing being a badass assassin!
4 Cengiz Coskun as Cassian from ACOTAR – Look you need to watch him be his badass self in Ertugul and then also be head over heels over his fiancé. He also rocks a man bun and I can seriously see him being a great Cassian.
5 Keke Palmer as Winter from The Lunar Chronicles – I think she could be really great as Winter
6 Matthew Daddario as Azriel from ACOTAR – Look there is no way anyone else can be Azriel in my mind.
7 Lana Condor as Linh Cinder from The Lunar Chronicles – I think she could make a great Cinder especially with her short hair cut!
8 Saoirse Ronan as Victra from Red Rising – Victra is a badass and I think she could portray her really well
9 Zoha Rahman as Samirah from Magnus Chase – She has already portrayed a hijabi in Spider Man and I would love to see her as feisty Samirah!
10 Deepika Padukone as Laia from An Ember in the Ashes – In my head Laia looks really similar to Deepika so I think she would make a great Laia!
11 Aishwarya Rai as Nahri from The City of Brass – I think she would do such a great job as Nahri!
So here are my fancasts! Let me know what you think! Who would you fancast as your favourite characters?
