So, not a shocker, but when I write characters, I’ll sometimes imagine different people to get realistic details, flaws, etc regarding physical appearance. Of course, my characters get their own flair, but it’s great to get ideas for a certain nose, or chin shape, to really set them apart. For Snatched, I definitely have my dream cast picked out based on looks, although not necessarily based on acting chops.
Played by Lauren German
Why: Kara’s got the dirty blonde hair, blue eyes thing going, but she’s got a toughness to her that’s obvious upon first impression, and I really thought this picture fit what I imagined for the character.
Played by Ashley Benson
Why: Dinah’s pretty as a picture, and definitely comes across as more of a girly girl
Played by Drew Van Acker
Why: I imagined Jared as your All American sort of dude, the kind that most girls lose their shit for, but not exactly Kara’s cup of tea
Played by Jean Luc Bilodeau
Why: Hunter has a more playful look to him, like he’s always ready to tease, or add some snarky quip
Played by Dwayne Johnson
Why: For Tank, I always pictured Dwayne Johnson. With a name like Tank, it makes sense for a guy of that stature, but there’s also a sweetness as well.
Played by Kaya Scodelario
Why: This version of Kaya Scodelario is exactly what I think of when I imagine Tweak. Giant eyes, raggy hair, and looking about six shots of espresso deep.
Played by Emma Watson
Why: There’s an inquisitiveness to Emma Watson’s demeanor that I always associated with Lizzy.
