When the news broke that the film rights for Lauren Kate’s Fallen had been optioned, I pretty much had a full-on freak out. In my post-Twilight days, I fell in love with Kate’s engrossing series about fallen angels and star-crossed romance. And to see it come to life on the big screen? Well, color me excited.
And then the lead actors were announced and this pretty much sums up my reaction:
Casting is hard, I get it, but with so many YA adaptations getting it wrong, I was so, so happy and relieved that Addison Timlin and Jeremy Irvine met my expectations and more. While I haven’t seen any of Timlin’s previous work, she has an impressive resume and she looks how Luce looks in my mind. And Mr. Irvine is perfection. I’m swooning already. He’s exactly the kind of guy and actor I envisioned to portray Daniel.
UGH. WHY IS HE SO CHARMING?
