Top 5 Wednesday: Favourite Fancasts

Top 5 Wednesday (#T5W) is something that I discovered through Ash’s blog, so go check her out! It was created by Lainey and Samantha in 2013 and is still going strong. There is a new topic every week, and you choose 5 books that are related to that topic. If you’re interested in joining in, have a look at their Goodreads group for more information.


This weeks topic is favourite fancasts. Fancasts areย actors you’d like to play your favorite characters or imagine your favorite characters as.

1. Lily Collins as Zoey Redbird from the HoN Series

If they ever make HoN into movies/TV series, they should so have Lily Collins play Zoey. I don’t know what it is about her, I’ve just always pictured her as Zoey when reading the series!

2. Karen Gillan and Aaron Taylor Johnson as Lily and James Potter from Harry Potter

I thought I’d just pair these two together. These actors seem to be really popular fancasts for James and Lily, but I really do think that they’d play them perfectly!

3. Scarlett Byrne as Amren from the ACOTAR Series

I watched Scarlett as Nora from TVD before I read the ACOTAR series, and she is just always who has come to mind when I think about what Amren would look like. I think that there are some very subtle similarities in their personalities, too.

4.ย Chase Crawford as Tamlin from the ACOTAR Series

I have no lost love for Tamlin, but I do like Chace Crawford and think that he would play Tamlin quite well. He’d probably have to get a bit more muscle, but other than that he’d be good.

5.ย Jenna Coleman as Emily Duran from Feel Me Fall

I feel like Emily would have that sort of sweet innocent look about her, and Jenna Coleman definitely has that, so in my opinion, she’d play Emily pretty well.

This took me longer than I thought it would. I thought I’d be able to pick fancasts really quickly, but it was actually so hard! I wanted to make sure I picked who I considered the perfect actor for the character I was fancasting.

  1. I’ve always imagined Zoey to be like Sarah Hay, the dancer/actor but she isn’t a native descendent so I wouldn’t want her to be actually hired for the role! I agree about your choices for Lily & James though ๐Ÿ˜Š
