by hyannah77-1 | created - 17 Mar 2013 | updated - 08 Feb 2016 | Public

If the Kingkiller Chronicles were a movie series, this would be my cast. There are certain characters I'm struggling with (hence the lack of Tempi on my list).

1. Eric Stoltz

Teenage Kvothe. I've never seen him as a redhead, but he's a really talented actor and he and Eric Stoltz resemble each other to me.

3. Domhnall Gleeson

Chronicler, I realize he's meant to be a lot older than JGL, but I couldn't picture anyone else.

Devi.

Who else could play that fiery redhead? If you've seen her in Firefly you know what I'm taking about. Seeing her in Mad Men made me want to cast her as Losine too.

She was born and raised in Huntington Woods, Michigan, and is the daughter of Lorelei (Frygier), a nurse, and Tom Bell, a television news director.

Elxa Dal Most of the time, when Kvothe talks about Elxa Dal, Kyle Secor is basically who I picture. When he talks about him as looking like a villain in a play, I imagine Aidan Gillen, styled as he is in Game of Thrones.
