Guest Post with Author Kate Hinderer

Hi. I’m author Kate Hinderer and I’m pleased to be guest posting for the day as part of the book blog tour for The Emerald Isle. With the popularity of books becoming movies and TV shows, it’s pretty common for authors to envision who would play the role of their main characters if the book were ever to hit the silver screen. Yet, at the same time, I have to say that no one entirely measures up to the character you’ve created in your mind and jotted down in the book. Still, here’s my best shot at who I’d love to see act in The Emerald Isle if it ever.

Audyn – Nina Dobrev – I admit to a slight obsession with theVampire Diaries! And while I do think at times Nina is awkward on the show, I also think that is the role she is supposed to play. I like that she is strong and independent.

Tristan – Chris Pine – Actually, I had vision of the Greek model Theo Theodoridis while writing this. I think he looks perfectly like Tristan, only with slightly lighter hair. But he’s a model and not an actor. Chris Pine has those dreamy blue eyes that would be perfect for the role.

Falcon – Adam Gregory or Brant Daugherty – I really can’t pick between the two. Perhaps after I finish writing the second book in the series, which will focus more on Falcon, I’ll be able to pick between the two. For now it would be a coin toss.

Linley – Selena Gomez – While her hair is brown the wardrobe and makeup departments can do wonders for things like that! I think she has the young and sweet demeanor that is so crucial to Linley’s character.

Levi – Jake Abel or Colton Haynes – Again, I can’t pick. They both have the looks of Levi, generally speaking. Maybe I need to see more of their acting prowess to figure out which would be better.

Molly – Amanda Bynes – Seriously, why did she stop acting? Sydney White, She’s the Man, all hilarious. She’s be great for Molly – the flighty, incessant talker.

Rive – Chris Hemsworth – Blame it on the fact that I just saw Thor for the first time, thank you Netflix! But I think he would be perfect for this dark character.

Tim – Jesse McCartney – I have a thing for Jesse McCartney and always want to see him put in a book turned movie of mine, I think I listed him in the cast list for Aurora Undefined as well. Despite the focus on his pop career the guy really can act! Check out his movie Keith or his appearance on SVU!

Jim Riche – Johnny Depp – How can you have a movie without Johnny Depp? No but seriously. He could play the role of the rich resort owner perfectly.

About the Book
To escape a bad break-up and fighting parents Audyn takes a job as a lifeguard at Fascination Island. The posh five-star resort lives up to its name in every way, including the strange rules the owner has about entering the water at night. Despite declaring it a boy-free summer, it isn’t long before the shy, endearing Levi and the mysterious, tattooed Tristan begin vying for her attention. When Levi tries to push his advantage and Tristan comes to the rescue, Audyn realizes there is more to both these boys and the island they inhabit. Suddenly, she’s forced to acknowledge a reality she’d never considered and to pick a side in the conflict that has been waging for decades.


  1. It is easier to see the characters this way. :-)

  2. I agree it is hard to see characters as actors when you have already developed an idea of them in your head. However, if you are trying to lure readers- it may help. Sounds like a good book.
