The Vast and Brutal Sea Guest Post by Zoraida Cordova

The Author’s Dream Cast for THE VICIOUS DEEP TRILOGY

First off, when I started writing the series, I didn’t have actors in mind. Naturally, I do like to fantasize with casting, because what else would I do with my free time except Tumbl!? If you have a different opinion (I have been known to be out of my mind), let us know in the comments!

Tristan Hart - Zac Efron
He’s too old to play him by now, but I think he’d be perfect for Tristan. He’s a mix of boyish and cocky. http://www.eonline.com/eol_images/Entire_Site/201339/rs_634x1024-130409123404-634.2efron.ls.4913.jpg

Layla Santos - Jessica Szhor
Layla is half Ecuadorian and Half Greek. This is what she looks like in m head.

Brendan - Champion of the Northern Seas and Tristan’s cousin is beautiful, playful, and totally Sam Caflin.

Kurt - Maxi Iglesias
Kurt plays an important part in Tristan’s journey (no spoilers!) This guy works pretty darn well.

Thalia - Vanessa Hudgens
In my head Thalia has a green tint to her skin and hair. That’s hard to find on Tumblr, apparently. So here is an actress that I think has a beautiful smile that is contagious.
Bonus, she took a selfie with green hair.

Kai -
Kai is blonde with a light blue/green coloring to her scales. This isn’t an actress, but when I saw this image it clicked!

Arion - Idris Elba
Arion is named after one of my best friends growing up. He’s super tall and has a super deep voice that is equal parts dry and sarcastic. Arion (in the book) is dark skinned and has black and white scales.

Dylan - Champion of the Western Seas is obviously Charlie Hunnan
Dylan is one of my favorite characters because he’s got such a strong family history, but at the end of the day, he’s just as lost and confused as the other champions.

Princess Gwen - Ana de Armas

I admit it. Gwen is my favorite in book 3. She’s strong willed, but has a soft spot for her loved ones.

Nieve - The Silver Mermaid. The Silver Witch. The Daughter of the Seas. Beautiful and deadly, I’ve decided not to cast her. Instead, here’s a throwback to the first cover comp.

Disagree with my “casting”? Let us know! Who’s your Tristan Hart?



 About the Author: Zoraida Córdova was born in Guayaquil, Ecuador, where she learned to speak English by watching Disney’s The Little Mermaid and Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker on repeat. Her favorite things are sparkly like merdudes, Christmas, and New York City at night.

  1. Its funny because I had a completely different set of people in mind XD

    Tumblr Boy Sean O' Donnell is how I saw Tristan. Many because of his eye color. Aquamarine eyes are very difficult to picture tho XD

    Fitness Model Michelle Lewin is how I picture Layla :) She's latina(from Venezuela I think) and in really good shape, so I naturally pictured her.

    Thalia was harder to picture for me. I guess I wasnt really picturing a woman like Vanessa, because her being 14 looking and small framed made me imagine just a freshman in high school who was pretty. Vanessa seems a mature for how I pictured :) But youre the author, so I must be wrong. Saw a pic that captured how I saw her but it was a digital painting.

    Kurt, I made up my own hunk XD saw a pic earlier upon looking, but I have no idea how to html pics XD My sister never shows me!


Thank you so much for commenting :) I love reading all comments and they really do make my day!
