I’ve seen a lot of people discussing/posting whether they used celebrities as models for their characters, so I thought I’d share my visions of Jeremy and Lucy in Goddess of the Hunt – a youngish Clive Owen and a brunette Reese Witherspoon.
I’m curious to hear if those of you who’ve read some or all of GOTH will say, huh?? They don’t look like that!! Actually, they look rather different in
my mind now, too – but it was useful to start from something visual.
But now – I need models for my new hero and heroine, and since I never watch movies or TV anymore, I’m coming up blank. Give me suggestions, please!
Hero – After spending six months with a bottled-up, brooding guy (whom I love, but…), I’m happy to report that the hero of Goddess of Beauty is a cheerful, talkative rogue. Think Rhett Butler. I need a guy who’s ruggedly handsome, but not pretty. Brown hair, tanned, rough-cut and muscular, but with boyish charm and a killer smile. Oozing self-confidence and swagger.
Heroine – She’s fair, blonde, blue-eyed. A delicate, almost doll-like beauty – but with inner fire. Graceful bearing. On the outside, she’s the picture of a perfect society belle, but inside she’s longing to break all the rules. She’s an artist and appreciates beauty, and she enjoys being beautiful – but she needs someone to see beyond the pretty face.
Any and all ideas welcome!!
