fan-casting the KOTLC movie! ✨

Hey people, elves, demigods, witches, wizards, crows, and all! Hope you’re doin’ well. 🌻 I really haven’t felt like blogging this past week, and I’m a ‘lil out of ideas (been a while since that happened, whew). ☹
But I got a smidgen of inspiration to do this post while I was in the shower (the best place for inspo, am I right?), and well, I’ll finally be fan-casting the KOTLC movie! 😌

For those of you who (somehow) don’t know, KOTLC is the acronym of one my favourite book series’, Keeper of The Lost Cities. There’ll be a movie adaptation… someday. I mean, it’s been announced, but it won’t be out for a few years. *cri*
So yes, while we’ll probably have to wait an awfully long amount of time for the movie, we have things like ✨f a n – c a s t i n g✨ to keep us alive. (And thank goodness for that.) So let’s get on with it, shall we?

For Sophie I have two girls~

Sophie Grace Wiki, Age, Net Worth, Boyfriend, Family, Biography & More -  TheWikiFeed

Guess. What. Her. Name. Is.
SOPHIE. Sophie Grace, to be specific. You maaaay know her as Kristy Thomas, from the Baby-sitters Club series.
Honestly, her name is like, 50% of why I chose her as Sophie (Foster)~ But also she kind of looks the part, and while she is *15*, she can look younger.
And also, Kristy (a role she played) is a total tomboy, and well, Sophie is kind of one too? So.

Shay Rudolph Wiki, Age, Net Worth, Boyfriend, Family, Biography & More -  TheWikiFeed

And the other one is Shay Rudolph, who’s also from the Baby-sitters Club series.
She’s blonde, and sweet. What else do I have to say?
I just think she’d be a good Sophie. 😌

Next up is Lord Hunkyhair! I’m sure you’re all curious about who I’ve fan-casted as him~

Ricky Bowen - High School Musical: The Musical: The Series | TVmaze

Joshua Bassett! He played Ricky Bowen in HSMTMTS.
Okay, okay. You’re probably thinking that this is an absolutely awful fan-casting and maybe that I definitely deserve to be unfollowed and banished for eternity.
But if you’ve seen HSMTMTS, you’d know that the character he plays there (Ricky) is actually kind of similar to Keefe, and I think Josh would be a good Keefe. 😌
All the other fan-castings for Keefe I’ve seen look utterly dumb and brainless, so take what you’re getting. 🙂
(oh and he is 21, but um, we’ll ignore that)

Chandelier-lover next!

Picture of Matt Cornett

*drumroll* it’s Matt Cornett!
…yes, another person from HSMTMTS. He plays EJ. But like, just try telling me he isn’t perfect for Fitz.
EJ and Fitz are basically the same person~ and they look alike too.
omg what if every elf has a human counterpart and EJ is Fitz’s-
Mm no. No time for ridiculous theories right now.
What was I saying? Oh yeah. Fitz and EJ are uncannily alike.. although I do like EJ much more. Sorry, Fitzy.

(he’s even older than Josh at 23 but again I’m just casually ignoring that fact)

The one who’s made of sparkles~

Aubrey Miller - Bio, Facts, Family Life of Actress

Aubrey Miller who I know as Hannah Parker from Just Add Magic is my choice for Biana!

She’s got the brunette curls, is a good actor, and I mean, just overall perfect for Biana. ✨

She’s 20.. but she could pass off as Biana, right?

Julia Tomasone: Age, Wiki, Biography | FilmiFeed

I also think that Julia Tomasone (Bianca Blackwell from Backstage is how I know her) would be good for Biana!
They can just curl her hair and boom, perfection. And her eyes could kinda pass off as teal.. right?
Welp. Not really. But her eyes are pretty and they’d be good for biana I guess, even if they aren’t teal~

Dimples dude.

Asher Angel - Wikipedia

Asher Angel! I honestly only know him from that one HSMTMTS episode in season two, but I think he’s in like, Andi Mack or something.

Yes, he looks absolutely n o t h i n g like Dex. But he has the ✨dimples!!!✨ There’s literally no one else I’ve seen with dimples.
And I tried to find someone even without dimples, but seriously, WHY IS DEX SO HARD TO FIND?!?!



Momona Tamada - Profile Images — The Movie Database (TMDB)

Guess what? Another Baby-sitters club actor. Momona Tamada.

This is probably my second-worst casting so far.. (first being Dex, obviously). Welp. I think she could be Linh? Maybe? 🤔

Just comment what you think~

Oh, and a glaring problem with her being Linh is that I can’t find a Tam who looks like her- oop

Annnnd that’s all I’m doing in this post! I do have a couple more peeps in mind.. mayhaps someday a part two shall appear in your readers?? 🤷‍♀️
I hope y’all enjoyed and have a wonderful rest of your day! ✌ Lemme know if you liked the people I chose, and if you have any actors in your head that you think would work for the characters. :))

  1. Ahhhhhhh!!!!!!!! I just finished reading KOTLC and I am in serious book hangover!!!! What is left in life now that the series is at a halt? What is there to read that measures up? (I am kidding on the last point, lots of books I have read after KOTLC are awesome.) I can’t wait for the next book to come out this year! 😁😁 I agree with you on Linh, And the first girl for Sophie, Plus she has brown eyes. I know none of these actors. haha I think that I would love a movie but honestly A TV show would be better for KOTLC in my opinion. There is too much stuff in the books for one movie per book.

    1. AWESOME! Welp, not the book hangover part. But the reading KOTLC part, yes.
      Yeah, I do think a series would’ve been better as well, but oh well. They made their choice. 🤷‍♀️

  2. Matt is seriously the best person for that role!
    Tbh, i wouldn’t mind the whole cast of hsmtmts playing some or the other role in kotlc…ignoring the fact that they are actually older

    Also, i can’t wait for hsmtmts season 3!!!!!

    1. YESSS. Even just like Olivia hanging around in the far background with Sofia~
      also I didn’t know you’d read KOTLC, when did this happen o_O

      YESSSS! I have a theory that it’ll be released around June/July because the characters are going to a summer camp in s3 right? so it makes sense if they drop it in the summers~
