I know that The Lunar Chronicles had been optioned for a movie back in 2013 and these things take time but Meyer said that the screenplay was done a long time ago and I don’t know about you but I’m getting impatient. There are a lot of blogs out these who have done their own dream cast but I have not been able to completely relate so far. The problem is not that I don’t think they’re good enough. It is that I had a very specific look in my head, reading this book, and they just don’t come anywhere near that so, I thought I’d come up with my own Cinder Dream Cast.

1. Linh Cinder
Name a better actress to play Cinder. I’ll wait.
I get that she’s a Lunar and that means she doesn’t necessarily look Asian but that’s just how I pictured her and it’s not going away.
2. Scarlet Benoit
Dye her hair red and she’s the perfect French woman to play Scarlet.
She is short and cute and blonde and adorable. I can see why so many people see her as Cress. Additionally, she will look good in short hair.
4. Princess Winter Hayle
That skin, that face, that hair *swoons*. She is my Winter forever.
5. Queen Levana
Queen Levana’s beauty is dangerous and her features must scream powerful. This is how I picture her beautiful glamorized self…
That being said, if her glamor ever comes off, I want Rakhi Savant to play that part.
6. Prince Kaito
He’s so beautiful. The perfect guy to play a Prince and an Emperor.
Ricky Lee Neely
You might recognize him from I Am Number Four. I love him in that movie. He did a great job as John Smith and I think he’ll be wonderful as Wolf.
8. Captain Carswell Thorne
That level of charm can only be achieved by Ansel Elgort. His eyes may not be blue but they’re dreamy alright. To cement him in your thoughts as Thorne, here’s Ansel being cute as a bunny:
9. Jacin Clay
You may have noticed by now that physical features like eye and hair color are secondary to me. What matters most is personality and we all know from Divergent that Theo is capable of playing Jacin to perfection.
This artwork is so accurate. This is exactly how I imagined Iko in the books.
And this hot escort droid body.
11. Dr. Erland
I hear doctor, I picture Michael Sheen. Here is a color corrected still from Masters of Sex where he plays… drumrolls… a doctor. He is an excellent actor and would play Dr. Erland with perfection.
12. Linh Peony
GOSH! She’s so cute. Confession, I just typed up ‘Chinese Child Actors’ and she came up. One look at her and I was getting all the feels. Damn!
Kim Sae Ron
13. Sybil Mira
She did a wonderful job in the Divergent series and my fingers are crossed for the chance of another spectacular performance in The Lunar Chronicles. Also, I love her so much that I just want her in all of my castings.
14. Konn Torin
Another Chinese Emperor face but Daniel Dae Kim is my emperor forever so he’s going to have to settle for Konn Torin.
15. Linh Adri
She’s smiling here but she has that face which can be stern very easily. I don’t know if she speaks English but she’s exactly how I pictured Adri.
16. Michelle Benoit
This woman seems so warm. Michelle is warm, caring and loving. I want her to be my grandmother.
17. Linh Pearl
She hasn’t done any negative roles thus far but I don’t know a lof of Chinese actors and she did a great job in Teen Wolf.
18. Emperor Rikan
He hs that emperor face, doesn’t he?
Daniel Dae Kim
Since it’s an android, there’s no point giving it skin, is it? This robot no C-3PO but it’ll do.
