The Knights Templar


It's a game ALL authors play, 'who would you cast as X if your book got turned into a movie?'.
Well, as some of you may know I have a, ahem, man-crush on two particularly fine British actors: Christian Bale and James Purefoy.
This picture is James Purefoy as Templar Master, Arthur SanGreal.
Okay, not really, BUT SERIOUSLY, IT SHOULD BE!
Don't you think?
We've got Wolfman due out next week, Percy Jackson, James Purefoy again as Solomon Kane, Clash of the Titans, Robin Hood and the Templar movie Ironclad (which I know nothing about apart form this poster but that'll do me very nicely, thank you) OMG, 2010 is turning out to be one promising year, film-wise. I could almost forgive Avatar.
This time next week I should be jet-lagged in India, which will be nice. Rather looking forward to a spot of sun. It'll be a bit of a mad dash to Varanasi, lots of wondering around a visiting temples and ruins and such, then mad dash home to start work on new book, that's been constantly put on hold as I carry out another rewrite on Dark Goddess. I must admit, I've written my first credible romantic scene recently. I'm not sure it's quite up there in the Bella love Edward sphere, because, hey, I'm writing it and my default mode is violence. There's kissing involved, and I tell you, writing a kissing scene from the point of view of a fifteen year old girl is probably the hardest thing I've even done.
So, see you all in a fortnight. Enjoy!!

Hi Sarwat!
Kee here. As a devoted twilightlover and sixteen year old girl, I can totally understand your challenge. We do see things very differently than older, more masculin people :p
A Bella and Edward romance is a really big shoe to fill, but I'm sure you'll do great. I'm sure I'll love it no matter what.
BTW I never got over Kay either. So Mister New Guy has even bigger shoes to fill, just so you know :D

I'm sure you can do the kissing scene just use Buffy and Angel/Angelus for inspiration. Also I can see that as Arthur SanGreal.
