For almost every human on the show, I liked the casting. Thus, I’ve kept most of them the same.
This character will likely always be Lois Smith to me. I love the actress on the show.
It’s hard not to picture Chris Bauer as I write this character. His most featured role in my stories to date is in the INNER-Verse.
Arlene Fowler (Arlene Bellefleur)
Carrie Preston does a great job on the show. She’s who I will likely always “cast” for the role.
I will likely always picture Lynn Collins in this minor role. In my stories, her biggest roles are in Comfortably Numb (AH) and Time after Time; she isn’t “killed off” in either.
Hadley Savoy (Delahoussaye)
Like Jason, she’s part-fairy, but I still think of her as human, so she’s here. I continue to picture the show’s actress, Lindsey Haun in the role, though I think the book description is a little different.
It’s probably controversial that I’m putting Jason in the “human’ category, but–here we are. 😉
I think this character popped up in the show. Anyway, I’ve “cast” her only in the Comfortably Numb trilogy (AH series). I visualized Gina Torres, whom I love in Firefly.
It’s incredibly sad that Nelsan Ellis passed away. He’ll always be Lafayette to me and made the role so much more than it was in the books.
I picture show actress, Danielle Sapia, for this minor role. Like the Dawn character, Maudette figures more prominently in my Comfortably Numb series and Time after Time–where she is not murdered early on.
I picture the show’s actress, Courtney Ford, when I write for this character.
When I use this character, I picture the show’s actress, Anna Camp.
Sid Matt Lancaster
Though he became a vampire in the show, I classified him as a human in this directory (because that’s how I think of him). I loved the casting of Michael McMillian and visualize him when writing the role.
Like most of you, I have a hard time not picturing Rutina Wesley as Tara. I love her in the show (she wasn’t always utilized in a great way, but she did what she could with what she got, in my opinion).
Like I said, it’s really hard for me NOT to see Rutina in the role: however, for The Trunk Trilogy, I’ve decided to change the actress to better reflect the book’s description. I’m visualizing Morena Baccarin.
