I make up my own people in my head using the descriptions given. Usually. Unless of course the movie is out first and I see the actor before I get a chance to read the book. Then there's not hope for my imagination.

Ok So here is my list

Ian
Matt Dallas or http://i688.photobucket.com/albums/vv24 ... allas2.jpg
Gaspard Ulliel http://www.flickr.com/photos/pepitosousa/2359419305/
[*]both of which need some blond to lighten their hair

Jared
Steven Strait but like he looked in the Covenant http://i688.photobucket.com/albums/vv24 ... strait.jpg

Pet/Wanda

Elisabeth Harnois http://i688.photobucket.com/albums/vv24 ... 378517.jpg

Doc
I cant pin point a person for him yet although he and Sharon are dating so I see him in his mid 30's not any where near old and gray

Melanie

LOL ummm still no one looks perfect but she needs to be like 20 at the oldest and pretty not beautiful and athletic looking


That is as far as I have gotten so far :)

Lighter hair? Why? I think it needs to be darker since Ian's hair was black.

Anyway, the only actor I've been willing to assign to a character is Cam Gigandet for Kyle. I never, ever would have come up with that on my own, but these pictures are more or less exactly how I imagined Kyle to look (save for the hair, which needs to be darker- but life rarely gives you everything).

The other night I was thinking about Brendan Fehr as Ian. Now that I think about it, He would make a weird Ian, but I still can't shake the thought out of my head.

The shaved head reminds me of Beckham tho :D

He looks better with hair, IMO. If not Ian, He can play the brother. I loved him as Michael from Roswell.

I've pictured Sophia Bush as Melanie, Ian Somerhalder as Ian, Jared Padelecki as Kyle, Jensen Ackles as Jared and that Skylar kid from the Narnia movies (the one who played Edmond) as Jamie. I'd have Elisabeth (sorry I can't remember her last name either) as Wanda/Pet.
There's a lot of videos on youtube that have this casting.

...That was such a weak post compared to you guys'...

I think it's silly when people say "I imagined [actor] as Jared and [actor] as Ian!" Why? There's really no sense in imaging anyone as anyone else. Ian doesn't look like anyone but Ian and Jared doesn't look like anyone but Jared. If they looked exactly like the actors you are imagining then that's who they would be. You know?

True
But when your reading you create a visual image in your head and often its what your familiar with…which for us would be actors and actress.
Because these people fit the description, in your head, that’s what you make them look like.

For Wanda…I always pictured someone with similar features to Taylor Swift…not Taylor Swift her self but the small frame, hair and skin tone are all there.
