Question of the Day

It occurred to me as I was contemplating yesterday's QOD that when I picture the characters in my mind, they are still the same way that I've always pictured them - unaffected by the casting of movie roles. I still see Edward's hair, stature and face shape a certain way (though oddly enough I don't see clear facial features when I read), and the same for Bella etc.

This makes me glad that I'll be able to read Breaking Dawn before the movie comes out, because I'm not sure if I'll still "see" the characters and the town the way I do after I see the whole movie.

Do you still see the characters the way you did when you originally read the books? If so, how did you picture them and Forks/La Push? Or do you see Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart now?

6 enjoyed the bouquet.:

The only one I picture is RP. Everyone else either remains faceless, or the way I imagined them before the movie was cast.

There have been books where I have been affected by the actors, but this is not one of them. The actors don't really look like my imagination, and I still imagine them in a certain way, although like you, Erin, those pictures aren't very clear. Kind of like a fuzzy picture, mostly. But I definitely dont see Rob and Kristen.

I re-read Eclipse last weekend and I jumped back and forth in my head...it was a little annoying. I'm glad too that we'll read the last book before the movie. I like the characters in my imagination better :)

I picture Rob, but he's the only one. I have to revamp all three books again and see if I can go back to my image of Edward.

I like my version better because he was totally perfect and, as hot (and perfectly cast) as Rob is, he still is human after all.

I agree, Kari. MY edward is hotter than Rob, even though I would probably fall all over myself if I met Rob in person. I like my bella better. And my Jacob. oh, my jacob is soooo cute! And I can;t help it, but in my head (its a name association thing) Charlie is "played by" Matthew Fox. He was Charlie in Party of Five or something, yes??? Or maybe I am crazy.

Ya know...I'm not real sure! I'm just going to re-read now in time for the release of BD! Bella I think I see as Kristen now! I hope I still see Edward the same way! Jacob I probably won't see as Taylor cuz I just picture him "bigger"
