As always, Sephrenia gave me some of her valuable time as I was working on this story. Not only did she create the story banner, but also she made character banners for both the “new” characters and the ones that I wanted to “re-cast” like Sophie-Anne. All other characters were imagined with the True Blood actors in place.
I’ve collected Seph’s character banners below, along with some casting notes. I hope that this helps you to enjoy the piece more.
In this piece, Amelia is very kindhearted and also strong. I felt that Page would be a good choice for her.
I picked this actor because he looked the part of the Andre I was envisioning for this story. Andre is not a bad guy, but he’s not exactly “good” either. I also wanted to choose someone who looked “young” and had a little edge.
I chose Cohan because I love her on The Walking Dead. I think that she would make a tough, badass Were!
Olivia, played by Keri Russell
When it came to picking Eric’s love interest, I wanted an actress who conveyed intelligence. Of course, she also had to be beautiful. I haven’t liked Russell in everything she’s done, but The Waitress is excellent, as is her work in The Americans.
I’ve visualized Quinn as different people in my pieces, depending on his role. In this piece, I picture Diesel because I think he’d be a good villain, yet I could also understand why Sookie would be attracted to him.
Sigebert and Wybert, both played by Clive Standen
Generally, I picture Sigebert and Wybert as pretty unattractive. But I wanted to give them a little bit of sexiness this time–and a bit of allure. Yes–they are rough around the edges, but in this incarnation, they can also be kind and tender at times.
First of all, I love Ambrose as an actress. She conveys the “youth” that I think Sophie-Anne would have. And I think she has enough “edge” to pull off the vampire queen. Also, this version of Sophie-Anne is more in line with the books. And she’s sympathetic to Sookie’s plight in the work. She becomes a friend to Sookie. Evan Rachel Wood is a great Sophie-Anne on the show–in my opinion. But she’s a villain, and it’s hard for me to imagine that actress as otherwise–thus the “re-cast.”
