For those that are not familiar with the terms, ‘fancast’ or ‘dreamcast’ is simply answering the question: Who would YOU cast for that character? If whatever book you were reading was made into a movie/tv show/Netflix special, and if budget wasn’t an issue, who would be your fantasy cast for all the main roles? Some authors are more descriptive about character appearances than others, so any descriptions also must match to whoever the reader personally selects.
This has been a fun hobby of mine that I now do for just about every book I read and enjoy. Below will be my personal selections of stories I’ve read! take a look, and feel free to share your opinions (respectfully please) if you think someone would be better suited for the role!
