If you are like me, nothing improves the reading experience more than finding just the right actor or actress to fill the role of the book’s main characters to truly bring them to life. With now twelve stories to this series, I think it is time to start filming.

With each smoldering encounter, their shared hunger only increases. If they can defeat the sinister enemy that stands between them, will Sabine make the ultimate sacrifice for her demon? Or will the proud king lay down his crown and arms to save his sorceress?

Kate Bosworth as LuciaFrom the shadows, Garreth has long watched over Lucia. Now, the only way to keep the proud huntress safe from harm is to convince her to accept him as her guardian. To do this, Garreth will ruthlessly exploit Lucia’s greatest weakness — her wanton desire for him.

Mila Kunis as ReginWhen Regin encounters Declan Chase, a brutal Celtic soldier, she recognizes her proud warlord reincarnated. But Declan takes her captive, intending retribution against all immortals—unaware that he belongs to their world.

Yet every reincarnation comes with a price, for Aidan is doomed to die when he remembers his past. To save herself from Declan’s torments, will Regin rekindle memories of the passion they once shared—even if it means once again losing the only man she could ever love?

 

Alexander Skarsgard as LothaireLothaire

Lothaire, the Enemy of Old – Alexander Skarsgard
Elizabeth Peirce – Nina Dobrev

Nix, the Ever Knowing – Reese Witherspoon
Hag (Balery) – Olivia Wide
Thaddeous – Alex Pettyfur

Driven by his insatiable need for revenge, Lothaire, the Lore’s most ruthless vampire, plots to seize the Horde’s crown. But bloodlust and torture have left him on the brink of madness— until he finds Elizabeth Peirce, the key to his victory. He captures the unique young mortal, intending to offer up her very soul in exchange for power, yet Elizabeth soothes his tormented mind and awakens within him emotions Lothaire believed he could no longer experience.

Nina Dobrev as Elizabeth PeirceGrowing up in desperate poverty, Ellie Peirce yearned for a better life, never imagining she’d be convicted of murder—or that an evil immortal would abduct her from death row. But Lothaire is no savior, as he himself plans to sacrifice Ellie in one month’s time. And yet the vampire seems to ache for her touch, showering her with wealth and sexual pleasure. In a bid to save her soul, Ellie surrenders her body to the wicked vampire, while vowing to protect her heart.

Elizabeth tempts Lothaire beyond reason, as only his fated mate could. As the month draws to a close, he must choose between a millenniaold blood vendetta and his irresistible prisoner. Will Lothaire succumb to the miseries of his past . . . or risk everything for a future with her?

I agree with most of your casting choices. Yes, Gerard Butler is the perfect choice for Garreth. The one choice I completely disagree with: You chose Reese Witherspoon to play Nix. No, Olivia Wilde should play Nix! Also, we should figure out someone who is actually from the South to play Ellie Pierce. The Canadian Nina Dobrev just doesn't seem like the right choice to me. Fun article!

@heatherbartley - Love Olivia Wilde. Think she is perfect for Hag and hope to see her as a main character in the future. Have argued this w friends and stick strongly to Reese for Nix. Olivia not flaky enough for Nix.

Uh, no offense but there will need to be alot of hair coloring and weight lifting going on 'cause if I'm not mistaken many of the characters have different hair color and builds in the books than the actors and actresses chosen, but hey everyone visualizes things differently!

As much as I dislike Megan Fox, I can see her as Carrow but I don't want to if that makes sense! I think this is pretty good, comprehensive list! Good job, Lucy!

Oh, wow some of these are spot on for me, Lana Parrilla as Sabine (I know the hair color is wrong, but I don't think that's such a big deal, and the attitude is right on), and Chris Hemsworth as Malkom for example, but some are all wrong. Reece Witherspoon as Nix is the biggest example. I'm just like, no. Reece, while lovely, is nothing like how Nix is discribed in the books, she doesn't have the right attitude to play bat-shit crazy, crazy badass and broken bird all simultaniously. I just can't imagine it. I'd actually rather see Nina Dobrev play Nix, though I'm not sure about that either, and switch Ellie to a southern actress, because I feel like because I think the regional-ness of the character is important, maybe Jennifer Lawerence, because she's epic and she can bring the enthusiasm for life and shrewed scrappy-ness to the character, like I will fight dirty if need be because I love life so much.
Also, just a general thing, but I feel like everyone forgets that the Valkaries all stop ageing at about 24-25, so none of them should look older than that, I mean, I know that nix is 3000+ years but the book says over and over that she looks like a teenager, casting a 30 something actress doesn't fit.

Love nearly all of these. Agree with everyone about Nix though, Nina would play her well. Also Julia Roberts as Mariketa no way, she is supposed to be really young, barely reaching immortality.
