As I explained in this post, I'm starting to cast actors for my favorite characters in the universe of Vampire Academy. Since Preger Entertainment announced that they bought the rights for VA and asked about the opinion of the fans their Facebook page is bursting with discussions.
Today we will think a little bit about Adrian Ivashkov.
I already casted him here, and choose Hayden Christensen. But since I'm changing plans and searching for younger actors I thought about someone more like...
Steven R. McQueen...
Yeah, I know he is busy filming The Vampire Diaries, but hello, have you seen him smile?
He got the looks, the charisma, the talent and the age to play an amazing Adrian.
Adrian is a Moroi, and the Queens' nephew. He is 21 years old and a spirit user. He tries to cover the side effects connected to this element with drinking and smoking. He has the reputation of beeing bad and a ladies' man. But after he meets Rose he has an eye on her and does not hide that. So after a while she promises to give him a shot.
Adrian teaches Lissa everything he knows about the element Spirit and learns from her in return. Sometimes he shows how caring he can be, e.g. when he rescues the younger student Jill.
“I’m like a fine wine. I get better with age. The best is yet to come.”
- Adrian Ivashkov (Blood Promise)
What do you think about that choice and who would you cast as the perfect Adrian?
Wish you all the best
