My Fancast/Dreamcast: The Extracurricular Activities Trilogy by Neve Wilder

Whaddup readers, it’s time for another Fancast/Dreamcast post, and this time it’s for what has to be the spiciest, steamiest, sexiest set of books I’ve read this year! Neve Wilder totally gained a fan in me with how hot these books got, they’re seriously some of the best MM new adult romance I’ve read out there, not that my list is incredibly extensive in this regards, but someday!

BEWARE OF SPOILERS IF YOU HAVENT READ THESE YET

Each book featured a different couple, and book 1 actually started off as a collection of short stories in a newsletter that gained major popularity before being brought together and published as one full length novel. Nate and Eric star in book 1, Chet and Mark star in book 2, and Sam and Jesse star in book 3!

If you want some spicy MM romance action, I can’t recommend these books enough!

Here is my Fancast/Dreamcast for the Extracurricular Activities Trilogy:

Nate: Ryan Ball

Credit to owner n/a

Ryan is a model that is total eye candy on Instagram, and exactly how I imagine the down to earth and slightly awkward Nate to look like in book 1. If he looked like this, I can see why Eric became so into him!

~~~

Eric: Charlie Matthews

Image courtesy of dnamanagementgroup.com

Eric is described as being dark haired with green eyes and a hot build even if he’s on the slimmer side, so this model Charlie Matthews is immediately who I thought of to play Eric!

~~~

Mark: Zane Phillips

Image courtesy of gaytimes.com

I’ve recently discovered Zane Phillips, and I’m obsessed…He might be the only reason I have to check out The Legacies on the CW network, even though I believe The Vampire Diaries DID NOT need a second spin-off show! It also helps that he’s gay in real life too, so he’d be perfect for a role in these books if they were to make it into a film/show!

~~~

Chet: Eric Guilmette

Image courtesy of etfitnesscoach.com

I’m basically making this fancast into a men’s appreciation catalogue, but honestly who’s complaining??? I don’t remember much of what Chet is described as, but I’m obsessed with Eric over on Instagram, so I honestly just pictured him as Chet in my head. This one may or may not be all that accurate, but hey, I’m good with using Eric to my imagination with these books!

~~~

Sam: Matt O’Brien, or Andre Lamoglia

Matt O’Brien, image courtesy of the model’s Instagram account
Andre Lamoglia, image courtesy of popbuzz.com

Sam is basically described LITERALLY as a human golden retriever/yellow lab, and whoever would play him needs to look the part! Matt is guy I found on social media who I imagine Sam looking like, BUT there’s also a new hottie named Ivan on the Spanish Netflix drama, Elite, who’s played by Andre, and I get serious heart-eyes whenever he smiles, just like how I’d imagine I would for Sam!

Jesse: Alex Espenshade

Image courtesy of rykermagazine.com

Jesse is a sassy skinny ginger who was also really hard to cast! No one came to mind right away for me as to who I could picture playing him! This male model has an adorable look to him that I could see Jesse as, but consider this a place holder until I find someone who I deem more perfect!

My Fancast/Dreamcast: These Wicked Lies series by Miranda Joy

Image from my bookstagram account: @goodyreads

Alright fellow booklovers, I’ve got another fancast/dreamcast that I’m excited to share with you all, this time it’s going to be for a lesser known title, but is brand-spanking-new as I type this casting up, and is definitely worth checking out all the same! I finished this book shortly prior to the making of this post, and its a fun debut novel that fans of Sarah J. Maas, Jennifer L. Armentrout, Holly Black, and Danielle L. Jensen will surely enjoy too.

The Synopsis:

When a princess with the ability to absorb and transfer life force energy discovers her mother, the queen, is manipulating her, she works with unexpected allies to steal the throne, battling magic-induced anxiety and unexpected attractions along the way.

Astrid is a vygora—a rare being that can absorb one’s life force energy and transfer it to another with a touch. Only two people know what she’s truly capable of: her best friend, Ilona, and her mother, the Queen of Hakran, a powerful myndox.

When foreign royalty and their handsome guard, Dashiel Dargan, show up unexpectedly with the ability to mute myndox manipulation, Astrid discovers she’s been a prisoner to her mother’s power her entire life, and she’s not the only one. Faced with a lifetime of memories built on lies, she’s caught between the story she thinks she knows, and the one she doesn’t remember.

But when she can’t trust anyone, how can she figure out which story is true?

Here is my official Fancast/Dreamcast of the “These Wicked Lies” series:

Astrid Sylano: Lauren Jauregui

Image courtesy of last.fm

Lauren may be known more for her vocal chords than any acting chops; she was one of the members of the popular girl group, Fifth Harmony. She’s gone on to singles success, but with a Cuban background in her family history, she could also fit the role for Astrid if a tv show or movie ever came out so long as she’s cool with cutting her hair to a pixie cut, but I think she’d rock that look!

~~~

Ilona Palmetto: Madeline Ford

Image courtesy of the actress’s IMDB profile

Madeline has the perfect sweet and innocent vibe that Ilona gives me, but you can also tell there’s a tiny spark of mischief in her smile that I think Ilona also has. Madeline is a model and actress who’s best known for being in Chicago Fire.

~~~

Queen Enira of Hakran: Salma Hayek

Image courtesy of instyle magazine

Okay….who doesn’t know who Salma Hayek is??? If you don’t, Google is your best friend.

~~~

Dashiel Dargan: Merayad

Image courtesy of the influencer’s TIKTOK profile

Yep, I’m turning to social media influencers for my fancasts now, I’ll give you a second to roll your eyes and moan in annoyance…………..so glad that’s over with! This guy, who’s full name is not known at the moment but I respect the privacy, and he definitely came to mind as I got to know Dashiel in this book. He is suave, he is smooth, and he is red hot both in photo and video form! Lets turn him into one of my new book boyfriends too!

~~~

King Emman Vannyk: Taye Diggs

Image courtesy of thewikifeed.com

Taye Diggs has got a smooth AF voice that is just so nice to listen to, and I pictured the King looking like him with all smiles and calm, smooth voice and being the voice of reason. Taye Diggs is another actor who’s been around for quite awhile, and should be fairly well known.

~~~

Queen Josselyn Vannyk: Adina Porter

Image courtesy of thewrap.com

I pictured the queen kind of being this tall but quiet presence in her scenes, but I sensed a calculating and observant mind beneath the surface. Just because someone doesn’t say much, doesn’t mean they’re not a threat! I love this actress who’s been in a lot of seasons of American Horror Story and kills it every time!

~~~

Prince Zale Vannyk: Lucien Laviscount

Image courtesy of cheatsheet.com

Lucien has a fantasy-esque name in itself, and he could totally pass off as a royal prince if he wanted to! He’s even got a British accent to boot too! He’s been in season 1 of Scream Queens, and even now can be seen in the Netflix show, Emily in Paris!

~~~

Gianna: Bianca Santos

Image courtesy of spoilertv.com

There wasn’t a whole lot of description of this character, but she does make quite a few important appearances in the book, so she’s definitely worth mentioning! With the lack of description given, choosing a face for Gianna is a little more up in the air, but Bianca is a Brazilian/Cuban actress who’s best known for being in the show, The Fosters.

~~~

Cedrik, The Healer: Daniel Sunjata

Image courtesy of the actor’s IMDB profile

Okay this guy (the actor) has been all over the place and has actually been in quite a few shows. I’ve seen him in Grey’s Anatomy, Graceland, and he was even in The Devil Wears Prada! I was forgetting any particular descriptions if they were mentioned pertaining to this character, so I could be way off on this one!

~~~

Callan: Giovanni Bonamy

Image courtesy of thesocialitelife.com

Let’s add some shirtless male eye candy to this fancast, and I pictured this French model was who I imagined when Callan entered into the scene. If he looks like this, hopefully we see PLENTY more him in the next book *wink*wink*

~~~

Loisia (a.k.a. “Lo”): Urassaya Sperbund

Image courtesy of stringfixer.com

Urassaya is a Thai-Norwegian actress and model I discovered while looking into this character and who I could picture playing her! I’ve personally never seen her in anything and I’m not sure if she even speaks English as a language, but I can for sure say that she is stunning and looks like how I imagined this character.

~~~

Sora: Kenta Sakurai

Image courtesy of theguysworld.com

Kenta is a Japanese-Mexican model who’s also been on Mexico’s edition of Survivor, and when Sora was described as having incredibly sharp cheekbones, Kenta was exactly who I pictured him looking like.

~~~

Jamell: Woody Harrelson

Image courtesy of chron.com

I could be totally off base with this one, but once Jamell was described as having a toothy smile, for some reason my mind went to him looking like Woody Harrelson. I have no other way to describe this, just a friendly reminder to laugh and possibly ignore this one!

~~~

Lex: Alfredo De la Cruz

credit to owner of photo: N/A

The hair, the eyes, the body……yeah, this model fits the look of this character PERFECTLY in my mind! If he wanted to make his facial hair even more present, I suppose I’d be okay with that too…

~~~

So there you have it FOR NOW! This is based off just book 1 in this series, so expect more characters to be added as the sequel releases! Be sure to check back when that happens and I’ll have this updated ASAP!

Thanks for Reading!

My Fancast/Dreamcast: The Caraval Trilogy by Stephanie Garber

Image courtesy of @thereaderandthechef on Instagram

***Warning!! This Fancast/Dreamcast contains spoilers for the whole trilogy, so continue reading at your own risk! You’ve officially been warned!***

Hello readers!

I got another Fancast/Dreamcast to share with you guys, and this one is for a pretty popular YA Fantasy/Romance series: The Caraval series by Stephanie Garber! I’ll admit it’s been a fun and absolutely enchanting set of books with beautiful imagery, twists and turns in abundance, it’s like a fairytale with a scavenger hunt in Venice, Italy under the lights and the stars….

Here’s the synopsis of book #1:

A legendary competition.
A mesmerizing romance.
An unbreakable bond
between two sisters.


Scarlett Dragna has never left the tiny island where she and her sister, Tella, live with their powerful, and cruel, father. Now Scarlett’s father has arranged a marriage for her, and Scarlett thinks her dreams of seeing Caraval—the faraway, once-a-year performance where the audience participates in the show—are over.

But this year, Scarlett’s long-dreamt-of invitation finally arrives. With the help of a mysterious sailor, Tella whisks Scarlett away to the show. Only, as soon as they arrive, Tella is kidnapped by Caraval’s mastermind organizer, Legend. It turns out that this season’s Caraval revolves around Tella, and whoever finds her first is the winner.

Scarlett has been told that everything that happens during Caraval is only an elaborate performance. Nevertheless she becomes enmeshed in a game of love, heartbreak, and magic. And whether Caraval is real or not, Scarlett must find Tella before the five nights of the game are over or a dangerous domino effect of consequences will be set off, and her beloved sister will disappear forever.

Welcome, welcome to Caraval . . . beware of getting swept too far away.

Here is my official Fancast/Dreamcast for the Caraval Trilogy!

~~~

Scarlett Dragna: Clara Alonso

Credit to Owner

This Spanish model came to mind when I was thinking of who would look the part of playing our protagonist of the first novel in this trilogy! She’s probably best known for working it down the runway of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show! Not sure about her acting personally, but hey, she certainly looks the part in my opinion!

Donatella Dragna: Ester Expósito

Credit to Owner

I’ve totally become obsessed with this actress, whose been in the Netflix Spanish drama, Elite. That show is full of unexpected twists and turns and extremely attractive people, so I know she’d be a great fit for this franchise. I think I read somewhere she speaks English along with Spanish, so that’s always a plus!

Governor Marcello Dragna: Jay Harrington

Image courtesy of the actor’s Twitter profile

Honestly, I don’t know much about this actor; his most recent work is being on the S.W.A.T. tv series, and someone else chose him as their fancast, so I googled him and nodded my head in agreement on this choosing. I only wish I remembered who’d picked him as their fancast, I’d totally credit them!

Julian Santos: Amadeo Leandro, or Ryan Guzman

Amadeo Leandro, Credit to owner
Ryan Guzman, Image courtesy of maxim.com

Julian was a little difficult to cast because I had a hard time finding someone who I considered attractive enough to play him! These two were my final two choices whom I’d be happy with either way: Amadeo is a brazilian model I’d discovered on Instagram years ago, and Ryan Guzman is probably the more easily recognizable to most of you. He’s been in movies like Step Up Revolution, The Boy Next Door, Everybody Wants Some!!, and he’s currently on ABC’s 9-1-1 as firefighter Eddie Diaz!

Dante: Alex Badia, or Mariano Di Vaio

Alex Badia, Image courtesy of the model’s Instagram profile
Mariano Di Vaio, Image courtesy of fashionnewsmagazine.com

Dante was another hard character to fancast because I once again had to find someone who I thought was attractive enough to play this mysterious and charming character! Both models came to mind of Dante, who has some darker features, and looks hella good in formal wear or out of it, I’d take him either way!

Count Nicolas D’Arcy/Armando: Dominic Sherwood

Image courtesy of glamaholic.com

He may seem like a really minor character, but he showed up enough times and caused enough drama for me to want to feature him, and as soon as the author revealed he had multi-colored eyes, Dominic immediately came to mind for obvious reasons! Some of you may recognize him as Cassandra Clare’s heartthrob, Jace Wayland, from the Shadowhunters tv series.

Valentina: Nathalie Kelley

Image courtesy of aconsciouscollection.com

Another minor character who doesn’t show up a whole lot, but I wanted to showcased her as well! Nathalie Kelley can be seen in both the CW Shows: Dynasty and The Vampire Diaries as the siren, Sybil. Actually, she was even in The Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift if you want to go way back!

Jovan: Keke Palmer

Image courtesy of lulahyers.com

Jovan was another minor character who’d made enough appearances that I thought she was worthy of getting fancasted by yours truly! I’ve followed Keke’s career all the way from Akeelah and the Bee to Nickelodeon’s tv series True Jackson VP to MTV’s tv series Scream Queens and Scream to the hit movie, Hustlers, and so on! Girls got mad talent!

Aiko: Brenda Song

Image courtesy of celebmafia.com

Why wouldn’t I want my original Disney Channel Queen to be cast in this role?! Aiko was a minor character who made our two heroines make some pretty hard choices in order for them to both win the game of Caraval, and definitely deserved a spot on my Fancast/Dreamcast for these books!

Paloma Dragna: Amy Brenneman

Image courtesy of fandango.com

I’ve really only watched Amy on the Grey’s Anatomy spinoff, Private Practice, but she’s exactly how I imagined Scarlett and Tella’s mysterious mother looking like!

Jacks: Dan Stevens

Image courtesy of the actor’s IMDB profile

I’ve really only seen Dan Stevens in the live action Beauty and the Beast, but with even just that movie, I feel like Dan would make an excellent choice to play this enigmatic and charming character! He’s got a handsome smile, but something tells me he’d make a dashing villain that we all secretly hate to love!

The Fates:

Coming Soon…

More will be added once I read Finale, so refer back her when I post my review of book #3

My Fancast/Dreamcast: The Plated Prisoner Series by Raven Kennedy

Image courtesy of Raven Kennedy’s Facebook Page

Hello readers!

Nick here—duh—to present another fancast/dreamcast of another series that I know has been getting A LOT of attention on Instagram and Tiktok—I assume; I refuse to get on there myself—but the Plated Prisoner series is one that a lot of people in my reading circles have been recommending! While it’s certainly been a slow-burn of a story in almost all aspects, it’s also one that definitely takes you by surprise and makes you curious to keep reading on!

The story starts with the first book titled “Gild” and is about a realm called Orea, where there are six kingdoms and King Midas rules over the sixth kingdom, Highbell. In his Golden Castle is the caged woman, Auren, who the story actually revolves around. She is Midas’s favored, his prized possession, his ring to rule all rings, his pet, so you get the picture…

Somehow, she’s able to live in her fully golden body and even has her own silken ribbons that go down her spine that can move on their own and can feel things like pain and touch. She was the victim of child trafficking and was homeless until Midas rescued her, and for ten years she lived in a golden, gilded cage in his castle and shows her joy and gratitude of being his even though her “savior” keeps her in a golden-caged prison.

King Midas is coming up with a plan to take over the fourth kingdom, the most powerful of them all, which is also ruled by a figure known as King Ravinger, or King Rot. There’s also hints tossed in about how long ago there was a seventh kingdom ruled by the Fae, and how Orea was actually co-founded by humans and Fae, but the Fae betrayed them about 300 years ago and cut the bridge between their worlds and disappeared…but perhaps some of their magic was left behind?….who knows!

Like I said, the first book may leave a lot to be desired for some readers, but as I’ve gotten further in this darker romantic series, I can agree that it’s plenty entertaining and definitely worth giving a shot!

Other Reviews coming soon!

~~~

Here’s my official Fancast/Dreamcast:

~~~

Auren: Nicola Peltz, or Gigi Hadid

Nicola Peltz, image credit to owner
Gigi Hadid, image courtesy of shilpaashuja.com

Both of these blonde bombshells are who I could see playing the main character of this series; maybe Nicola a little more since I know out of the two she has more acting experience…I mean, I also only know her for when she was in one of the Transformers movies with Mark Wahlberg, but hey, I know they both fit the physical description and are both in their mid-twenties like Auren is described as!

~~~

King Midas: Kerem Bürsin

Image courtesy of deadorkicking.com

At first I was like, “Oh, King Midas is definitely Gabriel Aubry,” who was the model who used to be married to Halle Berry, but then Midas is described as having golden hair with hints of him being a redhead, and then I saw this guy appear on some social media site like Pinterest or Tumblr or Twitter…and he has this smile that seems genuine, but I could also see him being a character with a darker edge beneath the surface, and this adaptation of Midas is worse than Tamlin in ACOTAR—seriously—so I don’t know if that helps explain it or makes any sense, but there you go!

~~~

King Fulke: Dave Bautista

Image courtesy of cnn.com

Dave Bautista is a cool guy, plain and simple, and I’ve been a fan of the guy ever since back the day he was in WWE and a multi-time world champion! I love that even after he left, he followed Dwayne Johnson’s footsteps and went to Hollywood and has found success in that too! He was Drax in the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, he was in Spectre and plenty of other movies too! Luckily, I also know he’s not like this character either, which is actually comforting…

~~~

Rissa: Charlotte McKinney

Image courtesy of the model’s IMDB profile

I remembered this blonde model/actress because she was compared to Kate Upton quite a bit back in the day! I’m not sure how much stuff she’s actually been an actress in, but hey, she’s got an IMDB profile, so that right there tells me she can be considered an actress too! Rissa, who is one of the more notable saddles in Midas’s harem, is described as blonde and absolutely gorgeous, and I think Charlotte totally fits that description!

~~~

Queen Malina: Natalie Dormer

Image courtesy of 1035bobfm.com

Game of Thrones, The Tudors, Pillars of the Earth, hell even The Hunger Games…we should all know Natalie is top tier when it comes to these fantasy, sci-fi settings. This queen gives me some major Cersei Lannister vibes, and with how her character Margery Tyrell showed she has a dark side too, I know Natalie would rule as the Queen of Highbell if they made these books into a film or TV series!

~~~

Sail: Nick Slater

Image courtesy of the actor’s IMDB profile

I first noticed this actor when he was one the CW period drama Reign, and when I met the character Sail when he befriended Auren on their journey in book #1, and this guy instantly came to mind for me to play the young and friendly knight!

~~~

Digby: Charlie Weber

Image courtesy of famouspeople.com

I could totally be off on this choice, but I also don’t remember really any physical description that was given about Digby other than he gave me impressions that he was an honorable and stoic man. If there are any actual times in the books when he’s described, please let me know! I’m only two books in as I make this choice, so it may change…Charlie Weber was in How to Get Away With Murder!

~~~

Captain Fane: Stephen Dorff

Image credit to owner

I thought Stephen kind of physically fit the description of the snow pirate captain, not that I think he’s anything like the character himself…The only things I’ve seen that he’s in was Zack Snyder’s Immortals which starred Henry Cavill, and he was the douchey boyfriend in Britney Spears’ music video “Everytime.”

~~~

Commander Rip: Walter Savage, or Jay Ryan

Walter Savage, image credit to soulartistmanagement.com
Jay Ryan, image courtesy of gettyimages.com

Walter Savage is a model I’ve been following on Instagram for some time and he was the first guy I thought of when I met Commander Rip in the books! He’s definitely got the rugged looks of him and even a smoldering stare, but I also included the actor, Jay Ryan, who may be another good choice too! His sharp facial structure matches that as described as Rip too, and he’s most notably in the horror sequel IT: Chapter Two.

~~~

Hojat: Andrew Garfield

Image courtesy of cheatsheet.com

This may totally just because I’ve been getting back into Spider Man with the recent movie that came out that also happens to be around the same time I started these books too, I just thought of Andrew Garfield playing the kind and cautious medic of Commander Rip’s army.

~~~

Osrik: Tom Hopper

Image courtesy of people.com

As soon as I was told Osrik is Commander Rip’s freakishly tall second-man-in-charge, My mind went to Tom, who has history in fantasy-genre TV shows! He’s been in Game of Thrones, Black Sails, and is currently in the Netflix show The Umbrella Academy.

~~~

Talula Gallerin: Diamonté “Saweetie” Harper

Image courtesy of wikibiography.in

Again, I could totally be off about this one, but upon looking around and trying to find someone who looks like what I imagine this character looking like, the rapper Saweetie just happens to be the closest person I could find! I don’t know if she actually has the acting chops to pull it off, but hey, it’s just a fancast for me and this book series, so I’m not going to spend too much time worrying about it for this particular instance…

~~~

Judd: Travis Van Winkle

Image courtesy of netflixlife.com

Judd is described as being kind of handsome but having mustard colored hair…either he got a really bad bleach job, or that’s just the author’s way of saying he’s really blonde, I’m not sure…Travis is an actor who’s actually been in quite a lot of stuff I’ve seen! He’s usually cast as the douchey boyfriend/rival of the main character, but has been in other roles too: some projects he’s been in are Accepted, 90210 (CW Reboot), Friday the 13th (2009), and most recently the third season of the Netflix show You, where from what I’ve seen just on Twitter, he leaves VERY little to the imagination!

~~~

Keg: Mackenzie Cook

Image courtesy of zimbio.com

The glass-eyed comedic relief from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies was instantly who I thought of when I wondered what Keg looked like when you meet in the book series!

~~~

King Slade Ravinger (“King Rot”): Dusan Susnjar

Image credit to owner

To be honest, I don’t really know who this guy is…I know he’s a french model and I follow him on Instagram and that he’s very attractive! He’s who I think King Rot looks like in person, BUT as I’m typing this I still haven’t read “Gleam” (book #3) and you will meet more of him in that installment, so this choice could very well change once I read more scenes with him! Consider this a possible filler choice for the time being, and enjoy the view while you can, because like I said…this guy is hot!

My Fancast/Dreamcast: The Kingdom of the Wicked series by Kerri Maniscalco

Image courtesy of Bookstagram account: @xenatine

Hello readers!

I’m back with another Fancast article, this time it’s a demonic, witchy series that has become a favorite of mine in 2021 as I started reading it, “Kingdom of the Wicked” is a spooky delight with enemies-to-lovers and (surprisingly) amazing food prep descriptions that may add on to my quarantine 45!

The story revolves around Emilia, whose family is full of witches who must keep it a secret from witch hunters, they live among the mortals of their island town. Her twin sister, Vittoria, is mysteriously & brutally murdered, and Emilia goes looking for answers, and reluctantly joins forces with one of her mortal enemies: a demon Prince from hell. They rule the kingdom of the wicked, and Prince Wrath may be incredibly easy on the eyes, but never before has a witch ever formed an alliance with demon royalty, but as they dig deeper into this murder mystery, they discover there are much more malicious forces at work, and dark prophecies may soon come to light…

I am making this Fancast/Dreamcast as I’ve recently finished the second book that’s released – Kingdom of the Cursed – as I’m typing this. I’m so relieved that Kerri Maniscalco decided to go in more new adult direction with this series; Wrath was WAYYYYYYYYY too hot to stay in YA!

Anyways, not everyone has been cast yet, but not to worry! I plan to add characters as I find a face to the name, so refer back to this post as books release and it’ll be updated as quickly as possible!

~~~

To see my review of book #1 – Kingdom of the Wicked – Click HERE

~~~

Here’s My Official Fancast/Dreamcast:

~~~

Emilia/Vittoria di Carlo: Sophia Miacova

She isn’t an actress, but this model definitely has the look I imagine these magical twins having! She’s got the Latin looks, even if I’m not entirely sure if she ethnically matches up to the characters.

Nonna Maria: Stevie Nicks

Again, I’m not getting an A+ on authenticity because Stevie Nicks doesn’t have any Italian descent in her blood, but there’s no doubt that she has a witchy, haunting vibe to her…hell, she played a witch in “American Horror Story” when she’s made surprise appearances!

Antonio Vincenzu Bernardo: Rafael Silva

I love Rafael in Fox’s “9-1-1: Lone Star” and he has such boyish good looks that I imagined Antonio having! Who wouldn’t have a crush on a face like that if they grew up with him like Emilia?

Prince Wrath: Clayton Brannon

Okay, but Prince Wrath was easily the hardest to cast because this is going to sound shallow, but who could possibly be good looking enough to play this sexy demon Prince from Hell?!?! Luckily, I remembered I follow this model on Instagram and I do believe he is an excellent choice even if he’s not an actor, he’s who I picture as Wrath!

Claudia: Jeanine Mason

I first saw this actress in a season of “Grey’s Anatomy” and she’s also in the show of “Roswell, New Mexico” but also who I picked to be Emilia’s cousin in these books.

Prince Envy: Mario Zabal

Again, apparently demon princes from Hell are sexy AF, because here’s another model who matches up to this Prince of the green sin…he’s got sharp features that I think really encapsulate the prince’s ethereal beauty!

Prince Greed: Daniel Gillies

So if you’ve seen my other Fancastings, you know I love “The Vampire Diaries” and for some reason, “Elijah” here came to mind when it came to the demon Prince who ran an underground speak-easy/casino to lure the weak minded into losing everything…

Prince Lust: Clint Mauro

Clint Mauro is someone who I consider to be one of the sexiest men in existence, so why not have him play the Prince of Lust! I even found a picture of him shirtless on a beach because a beach is where we first met him! You’re welcome!

Alexei: Jarred Blakiston

So this actor is obviously wearing a wig, but seeing him in full costume in the Netflix show “The New Legends of Monkey,” he looks like an evil elven Prince, or in this case, a certain vampire who does the bidding of Prince Envy!

Anir: Charles Michael Davis

I was struggling to find someone who wasn’t Ne-Yo or Tyson Beckford in who has both an African and Asian background since that’s how the character is described, but I found out that Charles is part Filipino, so it fits! Another TVD favorite who played Marcel!

Fauna: ???

I’m struggling to find someone who looks like what I imagined this character looking like….stay tuned!

Prince Gluttony: Darren Criss, or Adam Brody

This Prince is not a larger sized guy like you might think, in fact even Emilia describes him as not appearing how she expected either. He’s described as being shorter with brownish-maybe dark red hair and hazel eyes, so I pictured either of these actors playing the Prince of not eating too much, but simply enjoying ALL of life’s pleasures in excess!

Prince Pride: Adam Demos

Prince Pride finally makes an appearance in KOTC, and as soon as we figured out what he actually looks like, I pictured this hot Aussie actor to play him and continue to heat up the screen you’re viewing this post on! If he looks familiar, it’s because he’s on the hit Netflix show “Sex/Life.”

Celestia: Kristin Bauer van Straten

She played the dark queen Maleficent in ABC’s “Once Upon a Time” and also just so happens to play this character who works as a medicine woman down in hell who’s way more than meets the eye…

~~~

Remember: this Fancast/Dreamcast will be updated as more books release for this series, and as I figure out more characters, so come back over time to see any new additions.

Thanks for Reading!
