Here Thornton dreamcasts an adaptation of her new novel, The Conqueror's Wife.:
I'm not much of a movie-goer, but I can tell you that Sam Claflin (Finnick Odair of Hunger Games fame) would make a perfect Alexander the Great if The Conqueror's Wife was ever made into a movie.Visit Stephanie Thornton's website.
I also imagined Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth of Game of Thrones fame) as Alexander's kid sister Thessalonike as I was writing the novel. (Only Christie would need a long blond braid to complete the ensemble.)
Penelope Cruz would make a lovely Roxana, but she'd have to perfect an evil scowl and accompanying diabolical laugh.
A Gladiator-era Russell Crowe would round off the cast as Alexander's boyhood companion, Hephaestion.
