Genna & Tony -- PICS!

Yay! I did it. I finally found pictures of Genna & Tony and the rest of the characters from REMEMBERING YOU. I must say I couldn't have done it without the help of Monster Baby's movies. Tony just appeared magically, right before my eyes. I found Uncle Sally a few weeks ago and I've had Genna for months. Then BLAM, everyone else just fell right into place. So here we go.

First, here are Angie and her husband Michael.






























Next up are Robby and his plaid 'n pearl wearing girlfriend Lauren.







































Here are Uncle Sally and Aunt Fortuna at their 40th wedding anniversary party. Aren't they cute?








































Here is Pete. You should see him in his uniform. MMMMM.





















And the piece de resistance Genna & Tony.

























So what do you think? Did I hit the mark or do you all have your own ideas?

OH MY GOSH I LOVE!!!! As soon as I saw the title I ran over!

I have a post like this next week, seeing if the stories I've shared show the characters I'm thinking of, so how cool of you to share with us your thoughts! They do fit... and boy do you have some hunky men!!!! Delicious!!

Happy Wednesday!

You definitely hit the mark - they're perfect! Uncle Sally and Aunt Fortuna are my favorites. :) And I can see Genna much more clearly now.

LOVE visualizing your characters before I read about them!
You blessed me by stopping by Jen's place this a.m. Hope you can come by my place and check out the Back Cover Copy for Book #3. Yep, I'm thinking a new bloggite!

Oooo! It's so much fun to get pictures of characters! These are great! :)

Christi Goddard said...

Robert Loggia is such a great choice for Uncle Sally.

Piedmont Writer said...

Thanks everyone. I'm glad I hit the mark so far. And don't you just love Uncle Sally and Aunt Fortuna?

I saw Robert Loggia in a movie playing an Italian cook and I just knew he was Uncle Sally. He was so perfect.

Summer said...

WOW--you definitely hit the nail on Sal and Fortuna!! Amazing!

The only one I was surprised at was Genna--that's Jessica Alba, right? Not quite who I had in mind, but I can see it. I love the picture posts!

Jaydee Morgan said...

This is such a great idea - love your choices!

Shelley Sly said...

I love this! Sal and Fortuna are my favorites (seems like others like them the best, too.) I like Michael -- is that Mike from Desperate Housewives? Looks like him, anyway.

I'm with Summer that I was surprised at Genna. I pictured her with darker hair. But all the characters are great! Thanks for sharing!

Davin Malasarn said...

It's always a weird transition for me to go from the characters in my head to actual characters that someone else chose for me. But, I realize it usually only bothers me for a short while. Then, I start to imagine the actual characters for the rest of the time. Congrats on picking out your cast!

Piedmont Writer said...

I know, Genna is too young in this picture and you're right, she's supposed to be dark haired but I like her face. I wish she were older.

I couldn't think of anyone else to play her, which is why I chose her. Perhaps I'll stumble across someone else. But for now, she'll have to do.

tony is perfect!
Genna matches pretty close, but, like you said, she's too young. I like her hair color, though. That's similar to how i pictured her color

Bossy Betty said...

OH! Love this idea and the choices you've made here!

Crystal Cook said...

Fantastic!! I love all of these! Awww Genna and Tony make the cutest pair!

And Sal and Fortuna are hands down my fave.

Lola Sharp said...

OOOHHHH!! Fun! I love when you do these.

You have Uncle Sally and Fortuna exactly how I pictured them...so perfect!

I agree w/ Summer, the only one I'm off on is Genna, I too pictured her older and w/ darker hair...kinda Sandra Bullock-ish.
Your Dylan/Tony YUMMMMMMY! Now I'm back to team Tony. :)

Love,
Lola

Love the old couple!
I wouldn't even know where to begin with my characters.

~Nicole Ducleroir~ said...

I KNEW that's what Uncle Sally and Aunt Fortuna looked like! Everyone else is perfectly cast, too. I Love Pete -- erm, I mean, Pete's picture...oh all right! I love PETE!

The Words Crafter said...

Fantastic job!!! My husband would read your book just because of who you picked for Genna! :) I also wanted to say thank your for your prayers and concern-they're more appreciated than you can know....

notesfromnadir said...

This is great casting -- all of them. But the leads are particularly spot on. Great job -- & it should really help you even more, not that you need it, but anything for further inspiration!

Creepy Query Girl said...

I love this idea! I don't know very much about your characters yet but the 'picks pics' themselves are very expressive. This looks like so much fun I might have to be a copy cat:)

Olivia J. Herrell said...

What a great idea!! I've recently realized that I want to SEE my characters, especially the mc. This is sooo perfect. Can't wait to find mine and to get to know your characters better. Thank you for sharing this!

BTW, you described Robert Loggia playing Angelo in "Return to Me". That is one of my favorite movies!

~that rebel, Olivia

Jayne said...

I also thought Genna might be a little older for some reason! But this is great, I love your cast! :)

E. Elle said...

Well done! I had so much fun finding pictures for the characters from my novel. I think everyone should do it. You did a great job. Fabulous cast. :o)

Piedmont Writer said...

Thank you everyone! This was a blast to do and if you haven't done it yet, you should. It makes writing so much easier. You can "see" the characters.

Talli Roland said...

Love these photos - I think they look like your characters perfectly! It's so cool to put faces onto them, isn't it?

VR Barkowski said...

Great pic(k)s, Anne. I've done this for my three primary protagonists, but for some reason I chose photos of "unknowns." You actually have the ideal cast laid out for when REMEMBERING YOU is made into a film. Very cool.

Lynn said...

MMMmmm..you lost me at Pete. Yummy. I'll be thinking about him all day now.
