We'd like to recap last week's discussion and bring some faces to the names that were thrown out during the comments and also give you a refresher on what roles each of these characters plays in the Saga.
First up, Tanya. She is a veggie vamp and leader of the Denali Coven. If you've read Midnight Sun, you know that it was revealed that Tanya had a crush on our beloved Edward. She's described as having golden eyes and strawberry blond hair, possibly curly. I remember feeling a small spark of dislike for Tanya while reading the books. I think it stemmed from her fondness of Edward. I don't think she'll be a popular character, if this part of the story is portrayed in the movies. Here are a couple of the nominations for Tanya:
I did a little photo editing to help me see them in character. I think they are both gorgeous girls and would probably do justice to the roll. I think I'm leaning more toward Amy on this one though. What do you guys think?
Next up, Kate. Formally Katrina, but better known as Kate. She's also a veggie vamp. She's an original Denali sister and is known as the originator of the myth of the succubus, a female vampire who seduces human men. Her power is shocking people...she literally can send an electrical current over a person's skin by touching them. She's described as having pale blond hair and golden eyes, of course. The suggestions we got last week was a somewhat-unknown by the name of Alexa Havens and a very well-known, Natalie Portman.
I did a little Google search and then edited the eyes. I think Alexa is a total win for this character. What about you guys? Any other suggestions?
Irina will round out the Denali sisters, part of the original sisters created by Sasha, their mother for all "pretense and purposes". Irina is described as having silvery blond hair. She's bitter over the wolves killing off Laurent, her partner. She declines the invite to Bella and Edward's wedding. I think she'll be perceived as a villain of sorts...she's the one who turns the Cullens into the Volturi for creating what she thinks is an immortal child, which is a big no-no. By the time Irina realizes that Renesmee is a hybrid, it's too late. The Volturi have already booked their flights to Forks. The two suggestions we got for Irina are Amanda Seyfried and Tricia Helfer.
Amanda is my instant pick for this one. She IS Summitt's go-to-girl. I think she is highly likely to gain a role in BD1 or 2. She has that other-worldly look. She beautiful in a non-conventional way. I think she could definitely pull off being a veggie vamp. That Tricia is hard to track down with clothes on. Most of the pics on Google Images are of her baring all...or most of it. She is gorgeous and voluptuous. She actually is more in the age range I had pictured Irina to be. Which one do you guys think? Any other ideas to add to the mix?
This is going to conclude our Breaking Dawn casting session for this week. I've got to get back to my real work before my boss goes postal on me. Next week, we'll be discussing the following characters:
Carmen (Denali)Eleazar (Denali)
Nahuel (Aboriginal Hybrid)
What other characters from BD1 or 2 would you like to discuss? Tell us what you think! We want to know!
Stop back by tomorrow for another edition of Men of Twilight!
