I was tagged by the fabulous Aria @ Snow Whites Hates Apples (HOW CUTE IS THAT BLOG NAME!?) to do the the Listicle Tag! I love the prompt that she gave to list real life celebrities who would make great fictional characters (a.k.a. who would you cast as the actor/actress for so and so character?) I had so much fun trying to come up with these answers!
- Create your own listicle tag, using the prompt from the person who tagged you.
- Tag the creator of the post (not-so-modern-girl!) so that she can read all your brilliant posts and see how the joy of listicles is being spread.
- Nominate as many people as you want!
- Set those people the subject/prompt of their listicle post!
The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue
Monty- A young Jude Law
Okay I recognize that Jude Law is now too old to play Monty, but this is my pretend cast so in this scenario Jude Law is age appropriate! While I was reading this book I couldn’t help but picture Jude Law. I think it is because he is British and has that charming but goofy thing going on that Monty has.
Percy- Jordan Fisher
Fisher is a Broadway actor who starred in Hamilton, so he already has experience performing in a historical piece! He is also gorgeous and looks like someone that Monty would be head over heels in love with!
Felicity- Maisie Williams
I do not know why I see Maisie playing Felicity, but I think she would be a perfect fit. There is just something about her that makes me think she shares some of the same qualities as Felicity!
A Darker Shade of Magic
Kell- Eddie Redmayne
For some reason Eddie was the first person who popped in to my head to play Kell, and now I can not think of anyone else! I mean this picture just screams Kell to me!
Delilah Bard- Lily Collins
I struggled to think of someone who I think would make a great Lila, but I finally settled on Lily Collins. I think she a a good actress and she would do this part justice!
Fictional characters that you wish were real people!

I love all your choices for The Gentleman’s Guide…! I could totally see Monty as a young Jude Law.
Right? He would have been perfect for it!
I sooo agree with Eddi Redmayne as Kell!
Yes! He’d be great!

Ah thank you! I was really happy with what I came up with. I might have to do this with more books!
