Film It Friday: Siren by Tricia Rayburn

So, guess what!? It is Friday again, so its time for another installment of Film it Friday. This week, I chose to put together a cast for the book, Siren by Tricia Rayburn. The book debuted this summer and it was amazing! If you haven't read it yet, I suggest you do. I cannot wait for the next book in the series to come out next summer. Also if you haven't yet, check out my review of Siren.

Alright, so I picked out actors to portray three of the main characters in Siren, Vanessa, her sister Justine and her love interest, Simon.

Justine Sands: Ashley Greene. Justine is Vanessa's older sister. Vanessa idolizes Justine for her free spirit and fearless attitude. She often does reckless things; like cliff diving and takes care of her fearful younger sister, Vanessa. She is described as being very beautiful, with long dark hair. I think Ashley would make a marvelous Justine. She would easily pull off the adventurous attitude.

Simon Carmichael: Simon is Vanessa's love interest in the book. He is described as very tall and somewhat lanky. However, apparently, he has filled out a little more over the past year. He has got the whole "cool nerd" thing going on - he aspires to be a weatherman. He comes complete with adorable glasses. I chose Tom Sturridge for my Simon. I think he has just the right amount of nerdy and attractive and would look just smashing in a pair of glasses.

Vanessa Sands: Vanessa is our main character. She is Justine's younger sister and is known as somewhat of a wimp. She is frightened of practically everything. The tricky thing about Vanessa, is that she does not realize how beautiful she really is. She is described as a thin blonde girl, with gray eyes. I think that Sara Paxton would make a perfect Vanessa. She is a wonderful actress and could pull of the character beautifully. She is very beautiful, but can also pull off the girl next door vibe that comes with the character of Vanessa.

What do you think of my cast? Do you like my choices or do you have some suggestions?

Hi, Sarah! Thanks so much for casting Siren! I love your picks--especially Tom. Throw on a pair of glasses and he's TOTALLY Simon.

So glad you enjoyed the book! :)

Lady Gaga as Raina? After seeing her in American Horror Story I think she's perfection for that role
