Lately I've been thinking about what my characters from Streets lined with Gold, and if my book where made into a movie here is who I would want them to be played by. This is helping me a lot because it helps me have more of picture of what they look like. I have only done three so far.

Gavriel:Keisha Castle-Hughes. She played Mary in The Nativity Story, I think she did a wonderful job. She also look a lot like Gavriel. But she is older than Gavriel would be.

Irin is the next in the Tao family, and she has an attitude problem. I have seen two movies with Abigail Breslin and she was amazing! I think she could play my bad-temped, hurt little girl perfectly. She would have to dye her hair and have contacts, but I can think of no one better.

Francesco Gasparini is an Italian boy Gavriel meets on the boat to America. He later saves her life. Fabrizio Bucci plays in three Italian movie that I have seen.


  1. Wow, I never knew that background information about Irin. Sad. :( But I'm sure the story will turn out happy in the end.

    The pictures look almost exactly the way I imagine the characters!

    In Christ,

  2. Thanks! Yes things do turn out better.

  3. Very cool! I very much like your choices!
