Tara Hyland's "Daughters of Fortune"

Tara Hyland was born in Surrey in 1976. She studied History at Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge, and then worked in the City for several years before leaving to write full time. She currently lives in London with her husband.

Here she shares some casting ideas should Daughters of Fortune, her debut novel, be adapted for the big screen:
There's quite a big cast of characters in my book, so I'll just go with the three daughters of the title:

Elizabeth - I always imagine Katherine Heigl's body, as Elizabeth is meant to be statuesque, with Sarah Michelle Gellar's head (the way she is in Cruel Intentions, quite bitchy and sharp!)

Caitlin - A shorter Liv Tyler (I always imagine Caitlin is about 5'6, whereas Liv Tyler is 5'10). I always imagine Caitlin to be sexy in an earthy, natural way, just like Liv Tyler playing Arwen in The Lord of the Rings.

Amber - if she ever turned to acting, Avril Lavinge! Amber's meant to be a bit of a wild child, so I think Lavinge's rock princess looks would suit her perfectly.
