The series’s heroine, MacKayla Lane, heads to Ireland from her native Georgia when her sister is murdered there. Mac is blonde, pretty, likes hot cars and cute boys. So when she encounters all sorts of things from the dark supernatural side, it’s definitely a culture clash.
Even before the series was optioned, people were fantasy casting who would play JZB, with the current top contenders being Joe Manganiello and Jason Momoa. Alexander Skarsgard has been offered up as the blond Death-by-Sex Fae, V’lane.
Here’s Mac’s impression of Jericho:
“He studied me with his predator’s gaze, assessing me from head to toe. I studied him back. He didn’t just occupy space; he saturated it. The room was full of books before, now it was full of him. About thirty, six foot two or three, he had dark hair, golden skin, and dark eyes. His features were strong, chiseled. I couldn’t pinpoint his nationality any more than I could his accent; some kind of European crossed with Old World Mediterranean or maybe an ancestor with dark Gypsy blood.”
And on the other side, the light to Barrons’s dark, is V’lane:
V’lane looks like an avenging angel, charging down from heaven to set my world back on its axis and clean this whole mess up. Radiant, golden and mesmerizing, he leads an army of angels.
Tall, gracefully muscled, they stand shoulder to shoulder with him, filling the street. Stunning, velvety-skinned, dusted with gold, they are so chillingly exquisite that I have a hard time looking at them...They are otherworldly, divine.
Okay, those suggestions are no-brainers. Move away from the obvious for a minute and ask yourself: Who would you cast as Jericho and V’lane?
