I’ve never done a fancast before but I just loved The Lunar Chronicles and I needed to fancast them.
Cinder: Whenever I thought about what Cinder I’ve always thought that she would be played by Lindsey Morgan, her character on The 100 is similar to Cinder. If there is ever a movie made I hope she would be cast as Cinder.
Kai: Mario Maurer fits as Prince Kai perfectly, just as I imagined him, I doubt that will ever happen but one can dream. One other person I think that might make a good Kai is Harry Shum J.R, Mario is the first person I thought of but they both could work for me.
Scarlet: For me Scarlet was the hardest to cast, the others I had some ideas but for Scarlet I had non. I had to scour the internet for someone and I came up with Rachel Hurd-Wood. In the photo that I found she does look like she could play Scarlet, though I’m not sure that I’m sold on this one.
Wolf: I had a easier time casting Wolf than I did Scarlet, for Wolfe I choose Marlon Teixeira, I don’t know much about him but I feel like he is the physical embodiment of Wolf.
Cress: Olivia Holt I think would be a great Cress, I think she fits the character physically. I don’t know if she would be the best person to play Cress but she is the best person I could find at the moment.
Thorne: Theo James is perfect for the role of Thorne, he looks just like I imagined him, and I think that Theo James would be great in this role.
Winter: Alexandra Metz would make a great Winter, she just got that sweetness to her look that Winter has.
Jacien: Austen Butler looks like Jacien to me, when I was reading both Cress and Winter he was who I was picturing.
Iko: And finally Keke Palmer as Iko, tell me she doesn’t look like Iko. The only other person that I considered for Iko is China Ann McClain with her blue hair from Descendants 2.
