Here Wallace dreamcasts an adaptation of her new novel, The Storyspinner:
If I was going to cast The Storyspinner from the very greatest actors and actresses of all time, I’d choose:Visit Becky Wallace's website.
Vivien Leigh for Johanna. She’s a perfect physical fit (petite, brown hair, pale eyes), but she has an innate sarcasm about her delivery. Johanna uses snarkiness as a defense mechanism, and is fiercely protective of her family. I think the closest modern day equivalent would be Sarah Hyland from Modern Family.
A young Daniel Sunjata as Rafi: He’s a good match for the tall, lean Duke-to-be, but he also does well in roles were he has to show both action skill and vulnerability. It’s an extra bonus that he’s easy on the eyes.
Jessie J as Pira: I have no idea if the singer has a shred of acting talent, but she’s the person I pinned to my pinterest board when I wrote The Storyspinner. The height, the shaved head, the incredible bone structure is perfect for my angsty warrior.
