Dreamcasting (2): From books to film

I am a very visual person and when I read a book I like to envision in my head what each book character would look like in actuality and who could play their roles if they ever adapted that particular book into a film.

What is a dreamcast? Well, it's the cast of actors that you think would be perfect to interpret a character on screen. Today I will dreamcast one of my favorite book characters and explain why I think the actress I chose for this dreamcast would be perfect for the role of said character.

Dreamcast for Sydney Sage

Katie Cassidy as Sydney Sage from Bloodlines
Katie Cassidy has not only appeared on Supernatural as the demon named Ruby but she has also played a socialite with a double life on Gossip Girl and played a fun loving and spontaneous friend in the movie Monte Carlo alongside Selena Gomez and Leighton Meester. As an actress she has a lot of range ans strength to her which is why I think Katie would be a perfect Sydney Sage. For those who are not familiar with the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead or her spin off series Bloodlines, Sydney Sage is an alchemist who's main focus is to keep the vampire world hidden from the humans. Sydney is a very serious character, who is a bit more intellectual and introverted in nature, partly due to her alchemist duties. And I personally believe Katie has the perfect look to play Sydney on screen (height, hair color, facial structure) and demeanor because in the end of the day Sydney has a lot of responsibilities and Katie Cassidy is nothing but pure strength on screen. I definitely think she could bring that slight seriousness that Sydney has that makes her a bit aloof as a character in social/romantic situations.

Have you ever dreamcasted your favorite book characters? If you have, let me know about it. Also, if any of you have different dreamcasting ideas for the characters I've mentioned in this post, I would love to hear about them, as well. Thanks for reading :)


  1. She sorta reminds me of a younger Kelly Ripa for some reason.

    1. Interesting... She kinda does look like Kelly now that I think of it!

  2. YAY! Dream Cast :D I only know her from GG, and she's an amazing actress! I haven't read Bloodlines (yet) so I don't know whether she's a good pick or not for the character though :P oh well. Love this meme :)

    1. Thanks so much! I love to dream cast! :)

      Yea, Katie was great in GG, very good actress!

      I geek out so much for Bloodlines, it's a must read, especially if you are a fan of the Vampire Academy series.

  3. I could see that happening. She's a great actress and she's as Sydney is described.
