Casting Call for Darwin's Children: The Psychic Vampires

Before I share this post I feel the need to disclaim myself. Darwin's Children is not being adapted into a movie. Nor will it be a TV show. I wanted to clear that up because I gave several people the wrong idea. I just do this for fun.

My bad...

Moving on, last week I cast the teens from the Darwin's Children series. Now, it's time to move onto those wacky paranormal's. The psychic vampires. In the first book of the series, I really only introduced Layla Grey, the vampire mother and Sasha Grey, her savage daughter. Because of this, they are only two I will be "casting today."

Let me know what you think of my picks.

Layla Grey. Picture her without the make-up and with jet black hair. I think Charlize Theron would be a fierce vampire. I've loved her ever since I saw her in Monster.

Sasha Grey! I'd love to see Michelle Trachtenberg take on the most lethal hunter in DC. I know she hasn't done much action, but she has the look, and I've always been a fan.

Well, what do you think? Feel free to share your choices. Next week, a few members of the Dey-Vah Guard. That should be fun.

What fun - finding people that embody your characters! It also goes a long way to helping you visualize your characters and make them more real in your mind while writing. Charlize Theron is a gifted and versatile actress.

Hi Tasha :) Excellent picks, I've always loved Charlize. I think she would be an excellent choice. Trachtenberg has had more adult roles since Buffy and it would be cool to see her as a vampire (of course the REAL Sasha Grey would be good too :) Having a series with a large number of characters is certainly an advantage with these fun kinds of posts. I still also say ANYTHING's possible =) YA is very popular, just look at Hunger Games :-)

I love Charlzie Thorn as well, Pat. She has that regal look I associate with Layla.

@Charles. LOL. The real Sasha Gray... no comment ;)

I likes, especially the pick for Sasha. But I could see Charlize working too.

Now you just need Nova to start a movie production company.

Haha, that's genius! I think I can talk her into it =)
