Dreamcasting (4): 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 a popular book character and explain why I think the actor I chose for this dreamcast would be perfect for the role of said character.


Dreamcast for Kaidan Rowe
Silviu Tolu as Kaidan Rowe from Sweet Evil 





So, Kaidan Rowe is the male lead in the YA paranormal romance Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins (an incredible angel book). In Sweet Evil, Kaidan is described as a bad boy of sorts, a charmer with a British accent who is a nephilim (half demon-half human) and son of the head demon of lust. He is described as being tall, with dark brown hair and blue eyes and when I saw Silviu he immediately struck me as a good fit for Kaidan. Silviu Tolu is a Romanian male model who likes acting.

 In Sweet Evil, the way Kaidan is described physically, kinda reminded of a model since Kai as a nephilim and son of the head demon of lust has the job of trying to kinda seduce girls to make them behave badly and his main weapon is, you guessed it, his looks. And I think Silviu could portray that perfectly since he has the looks for it.



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

  1. Ohhhhh, I LOVE this meme, Jen!! I've never really dreamcasted characters I love because I'm so picky with which real boy I choose to represent my favourite book boys LOL. But sometimes when someone else dreamcasts an actor/model, I can't help but think, "That's him!" And gosh, this is one of those times! I love Kaidan Rowe so much -- those Brits always get to me :')

    Love your dreamcasting skills, Jen! You should do this more often ;) <3

    1. Yay, Mimi <3 Thank you so much! :)

      Haha, I hear you. It is so tough to dreamcast sometimes, especially if you love the character. It took me quite a bit to find the perfect Kai xD

      Yea, those Brits always get to me too, haha <3 (My top guys are √Čtienne St. Clair, Will Herondale, and now Kaidan Rowe)

      Aw thank you, Mimi. I appreciate that <3 I definitely plan on doing more dreamcast posts. :)

    1. Haha, yes! I highly recommend Sweet Evil. Not only is Kaidan swoonworthy (there is just no denying it) but Sweet Evil is very well-written.

      It stands out amongst the many angel books out right now. An amazing YA novel. Def check it out if you get the chance, Lauren ;)

  6. Gatita. what are you doing? I'm done. I have died. I'm talking to you from the afterlife or heaven or hell. I dk anymore. Kai won me over even before I read his dialogue (I was going to say even before I heard he talk, but he isn't real) #ugly sobbing. you've ruined me gatita. Kai has charmed his way into my heart and there is no way in hell I'm letting him go. you'd have to kill me first asdfghjkl.

      Hahaha, I'm guessing you approve of my choice for Kai, then ;)

      I knew you would love his character. I'm so glad that you are enjoying Sweet Evil and loving Kai as much as I did. He is such a charmer! <3
