Last weeks Fancy Friday inspired me to do more of these. In fact, I got sooo into it that I just couldn't stop tell I completed EVERY couple from both DOB and WOC. This week I am sharing the first book, A Passion Most Pure from the DOB series. Then, I think I'll probably continue to go in order after that. I don't know yet if I will do one of these every week until I'm finished showing them all off, or if I will do things in between.
I have been consulting Julie Lessman these, so she has seen them all already. We both have agreed on these except for last weeks Luke McGee. I hope all of you like the rest of the casting. So, without further ado here is Collin McGuire and Faith O'Connor!!!
Faith O'Connor- As a kid/teen Faith was a very scrawny/boney girl. She was born with a twin named Hope but around the age of 9 Hope died because of health issues. For a long time Faith wore leg braces because of birth complications as well. She had Auburn hair and green eyes that were consider haunting. However, when she grew up she filled out a little bit and gone were the leg braces. Her eyes became mesmerizing and her hair beautiful. She was average height. Her character/morals were pure, but she was definitely high strong.
Kiera Knightley as Faith O'Connor
Now, I know that Kiera doesn't have red hair or green eyes, but that's besides the point. I mean, they can change those things for movies right? I picked her because she is of the right build and character. We all know that Kiera is definitely a small women. She is also great at playing stubborn girls who just have to prove everyone wrong as well, example, Pride and Prejudice. She's also pretty without being OVER the top, kinda a subtle sneak up on you beauty. Know what I mean?
Young Hugh Jackman as Collin McGuire
Now I don't know about any of you, but I have always thought Hugh Jackman was EXTREMELY attractive and I'm 17! I know, my family jokes around saying I like older men, but who can blame me when it comes to that face? And when he was younger? *Sigh*. Anyway, Hugh is 6'2'' and obviously tall dark and handsome. And if you've seen him in anything you should know that he does have this arrogant look about him. So, I pretty much just think he's perfect for the part!
