  1. Erin says:

    I think they look a little too old for the roles….. I think Logan Lerman should be Ethan and Danielle Cambell-Jackson should be Lena! They really fit the roles better. Sorry… I can’t really imagine anyone better. Thanks if you change:)

  2. Aileen C. says:

    The guy looks like more of a Link to me and the girl might look like Lena if she had little more of a Gothic side.

  3. Ciara says:

    I think that the guy for Ethan is wrong!! But the girl for Lena is pretty good! I just hope that the movie will be as good as the book!!

  4. Jackie says:

    nooooooo! these actors are so not what i pictured! i expected logan lerman to be ethan!! i think that lena should not be her! if anyone she should have black hair and green eyes! i respect your guy’s pick though! i think they will act well and be good for the part! i am still SOOOOOO exited for the movie i cant wait! and i LOVED the books!!!! :D

  5. Tammy says:

    LOVE Viola Davis for Amma. I am like others though. This series is so deeply rooted in Southern heritage that I am disappointed that Southern actors were not sought out for the roles of Ethan and Lena. Hair and make-up can transform the girl, but something does not feel right in the look (at least to me). I do not mean disrespect to these actors, but they are in NO WAY what I hoped to see. This is what ya’ get when you write such strong characters! :)

    i just hope they do well and i hope that the movies and books are exact

  7. Victoria says:

    I think they are perfect! With a little make up, some hair dye and contacts (in Lena’s case) they are exactly what I pictured. They did a way better job matching them to the book then Twilight did! :)

  8. Marina says:

    Alice is pretty much how I pictured Lena, but I pictured Ethan as someone different, although this guys ok.

  9. Kim says:

    I love these Books- greets from Germany- but honestly I don’t imagine them both like that, specially Ethan. I know it doesn’t matter but I was hoping these Books don’t going to be a Movie. I’m scared that a Movie will ruin them.

  10. Deborah says:

    for Ethan Logan Lerman
    and for Ridley Avril Lavgine or Taylor Mosen

  11. Keenan says:

    Can Jack pull off the southern accent of Ethan? He’s british.

  12. Lexi says:

    not at all what i expected. sorry to say but im dissapointed no offense. i thought Lauren Mcknight was the best for Leana.

  13. Breighann Peltier says:

    Agree with Roberta and Jess Jaramillo and Ridley Duchannes
    I think the authors could have done a little better with picking the main parts!!

  14. Bailee says:

    I think that you could not have picked better stars to play these lovers. Sure it will take some getting used to, but I can see them as Ethan and Lena.

  15. Ariahna says:

    She looks like she will be a perfect lena. Also I was listening to music and the song Nine in the afternoon came on by panic at the disco, it reminded me of a song that could play with like ethan and lena out in the garden or in her bedroom. Like these versus…
    *Picking up things we shouldn’t read
    It looks like the end of history as we know
    It’s just the end of the world …. Like in beautiful chaos
    *Your eyes are the size of the moon … Lenas eyes are said to be big and magical so I felt that was fitting
    And many other parts fit this series so you should play this song somewhere in the movie! <3 cant wait for beautiful redemption

  16. clf says:

    Whos playin link, and whens the movie comin out cant contain excitement!

  17. Erin says:

    Totally agree on Logan Lerman

  18. Becks says:

    Uhmm…they look really old….not at all how I pictured them. I just really hope they can pull this off..to perfection.

  19. tinkerbell says:

  20. lex says:

    The girl is too old for Lena and Logan Lerman would be awesome for Ethan
