And We Cannot Forget Hope
Wednesday, May 13th, 2009

Continuing with the ‘just for fun’ topic we began yesterday of choosing the actors to play Ryan Daire (see below) and Hope Stillwater for our fantasy movie version of Daring Time…

This is a tough one for me, because I really can’t picture anyone who is ‘perfect’ for Hope Stillwater. Hope has dark, curling hair, delicate features and dark, expressive eyes. She’s spunky and full of life, thus the nominations for

Kate Winslet

Drew Barrymore (We’d need to do wigs for these ladies.) 🙂

Emily Rossum (Below) Good one, Mari!

and Anne Hathaway
I even found one of her in a linen nightgown from Becoming Jane.
Can you think of another likely candidate? If so, let me know and I’ll put her up!

    Great choice, Mari. Is this the woman from Clueless…the leads friend?

    Hey Beth
    I’ve heard of her & have probably seen her
    but that picture is Hope. Good eye Mari!
    Now I really want the movie!

    I really like Anne Hathaway for “Hope”, although Emily Rossum is also a great choice. 🙂

    Warm Regards

    was watching “No Reservations” earlier (love Aaron Eckhart). Is Catherine Zeta Jones too old?

    Hi Mary!

    Hope should have a combined fiestyness and demureness, too. I like KZJ (and she certainly has the dark hair and dark eyes) but it’d be hard to find her demure side. lol.
