Here Redfearn dreamcasts an adaptation of her new novel, No Ordinary Life:
There is a lot of hypocrisy in me contemplating this question. My novel is about the dangers of child stardom, and if my book was made into a film, it would require casting half a dozen young actors to play the parts of the characters in the book. The age of the kids would be paramount, so who is cast would depend on when the movie was made and what child stars were available. As far as the adults go, I always start with a photo pulled off the web of who I think the characters are. For Faye, I started with a photo of Reese Witherspoon when she was in her twenties. Faye needs to be young, naive, pretty though not stunning, and with a sense of humor, maybe Julianne Hough. Faye’s husband, Sean, is a rebel and a jerk, but good looking and charming. He started out as Tyson from Survivor. I’m thinking maybe Chris Hemsworth if you tat him up a bit and make him scruffy. Griff, Faye’s love interest, one of my favorite characters, is big and loveable. He was originally Tom Brady, quarterback for the New England Patriots, and if Tom would like to take a break from football, I’m fine with him playing the part (I’m sure Julianne Hough would be fine with it as well).Visit Suzanne Redfearn's website, Facebook page, and Twitter perch.
