Cast Them Away (5)

Hey Chroniclers! I am back with another edition of Cast Them Away, the meme where I choose an actress or actor to play a role of a character if a book were to become a movie. This week I'll be choosing an actress for a book I'm currently reading called Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare. A while ago I heard news that they were working on Clockwork Angel script and I immediately began thinking on who would play Tessa. I keep hearing a lot of people say Nina Dobrev which I can see it happening but today I saw a picture that I absolutely loved.

Now the thing is, I really want to know who the cover model is but Cassandra Clare won't reveal her name. She looks like the perfect Tessa and it would be cool if her acting was great because she could be cast in the role. But, I don't see that happening so therefore I must choose an actress.

Now I don't think I need to tell you guys what Clockwork Princess is all about aside from the fact that it is the final book in The Infernal Devices Trilogy. It's a really good trilogy and the thing about Tessa's character is that her role would expand over to The Mortal Instruments movie as well. I'm not saying how but it's there. So we need an actress who can fit in different time periods.

The person that I have chosen is....

Emilia Clarke!

You may know her as Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen. Khaleesi and mother of the three dragons, from the show Game of Thrones. We all know how bad ass she is. But can she do Victorian?

I think she can! She has the look for it, for sure. The picture reminds me of Tessa on the cover and I think that her look will definitely fit in different time periods. Tessa in The Infernal Devices is a Shapeshifter who gets mixed up with Shadowhunters and basically joins the team to kick ass and fight crime. Kind of.

 She's very proper and very poised but can still wield a weapon without a problem. I'm actually very excited for this movie more than City of Bones and I can't exactly say why. I just can't wait to see who gets cast as who. They're currently working on the script so it still may be a while before the movie comes out. I say it'll be released around City of Glass or after.

What do you guys think of Emilia Clarke as Tessa? Do you have anyone else in mind? Leave your comments down below and let us discuss! Are you excited for Clockwork Angel movie? Let me know!

Hi! I came across your post about the Clockwork Angel cast and I was hooked to your blog. In fact, I followed your blog instantly. Anyway, I agree that Emila Clarke would make an ideal cast for Tessa. She certainly exuded strength but has feminine values as well. Another actress I had in mind is actually Astrid Berges-Frisbey. Persnally, she would make a wonderful Tessa Gray as well. She had that Victorian era quality about her with wilful prowess to add in the mix. What do you think? :)
