FF!: Clockwork Angel Fancasting

For this week's Fanmade Friday!, I present to you a fancasting for... *drum rolls*

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

The whole series blew me away from the first book, Clockwork Angel, with the captivating characters and such mindfucking storyline. It's young adult and takes place like Clare's Mortal Instruments series with Shadowhunters - half-angel, half-human creatures - as they fight against the darkness that threatens.

Tessa Gray:

Okay, my first real choice would've been Astrid Berg├Ęs-Frisbey because she has Tessa's look down to a 'T'. She just has Tessa's look, or how I always imagined Tessa to be. But then I found out that English is her fourth language is it'll be hard for her to play an American girl. Another casting would be Hailee Steinfeld who's 16 and it'll be perfect since Tessa is 16 as well. She's a terrific actress and it'd be fantastic if she was Tessa.

Will Herondale:

My God, there is not even a single doubt for me. Aaron Taylor-Johnson during his Nowhere Boy years was A+++. He was Will all the way. I couldn't imagine anyone else playing him. He was cocky, horribly handsome, and just alkejrlkwjer. I'm speechless. And he's English ;)

Jem Carstairs:

So, a lot of people think that Anthony Neely would be a great pick for Jem. But since I don't know his background, whether he's a good actor or not, I'm not that sure. He probably has the look down. I mean, I think he could pull off the silver hairs. I really hope he's a fantastic actor so if they end up casting him as Jem, he'd play the role well.

Charlotte Branwell:

Gemma Arteton does have Charlotte's look. I'm familiar with some of her work, such as her roles in Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters and Quantum of Solace. From what I've seen so far, I think that's she's a great actress and she has Charlotte's look down. She looks wise and beautiful at the same time.

Jessamine Lovelace:

I'm only familiar with Gabriella Wilde with her role from Three Musketeers but, from that movie, I could only say that she was pretty good. She's undeniably stunning and that would really suit Jessamine. She has the look but, since I've never seen her other roles, I don't know if she'd be good for Jessie.

That brings us to an end to my Fanmade Friday! I'd fancast the rest of the characters but that would list a lot of them. Have you read Clockwork Angel? If you have, who's your dream cast? If you haven't and you're a big fan of young adult books, you should definitely give it a try! Leave your thoughts and ideas in the comments below! :D

  1. I love the book series and right now I reading the last book in the series. I agree with you when it comes to Tessa. Astrid Berges-Frisbey could have been a perfect Tessa Grey. For Will, I have many different actors. One of those who is highest on my list is Douglas Booth, but I think Aaron Taylor Johson would also have been a good Will. For Jem, I agree with you. Anthony Neely would have been perfect. The other characters I have not thought about yet. Looking forward to the day one can see these characters on film, no matter who plays them :)
