Chacters: How Do You Picture Them? My Twilight Example

Monday, July 5, 2010

Okay so I was thinking about way back when I first read TWILIGHT, before all the movie hype, back when it was only my imagination that created the infamous Edward Cullen. The world now thinks of Edward as Robert Pattinson--

--but this morning I was watching "A Walk to Remember" on cable and I was reminded that another actor was my 'ideal' Edward when I first read the books. The actor, Shane West, to me has the perfect crooked smile and reddish/brown mussed hair as described in the novels, so the entire time I read those books I pictured him.

Needless to say, when I first saw Robert Pattinson I was one of the people disappointed with their choice simply because it's not how I pictured my beloved Edward. LOL

So I'm curious...any actors remind you of characters in novels? Who was/is your Edward?

I actually didn't picture Edward like this either (I think I had a more classical vampire look in mind) but I pictured Dakota Fanning as Jane from day one. Except, I had imagined her actually looking like the book with short brown hair, not blond, and younger.

I never had a chance to not picture RPatz as Edward since I started reading the books in early November, right before the movie came out. But that guy is cute too. That movie is sweet and sad, lol.

Great question. I didn't have an actor pictured as Edward when I read the books but I agree on being disappointed when I saw Robert Pat as Edward. The version in my head was better.:)

Rpat is amazing as Edward, but Shane is hot too. I see Shane more as Stephen in Vampire Diaries.
