Although I think everyone sees characters differently in the novels we read, I’m often asked who I’ve pictured while writing Sister Dear. If the book was made into a movie, it’s also fun to think about which celebrities might play the main characters.
Here’s my cast for Sister Dear:
Allie Marshall – Jennifer Lawrence
Academy Award-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence is best known for playing Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games (2012), Tiffany Maxwell in Silver Linings Playbook (2012), and Rosalyn Rosenfeld in American Hustle (2013).
Jennifer Shrader Lawrence was born on August 15, 1990 in Louisville, Kentucky. Her big break came when she played Ree in Winter’s Bone (2010), which landed her Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations. Shortly thereafter, she secured the role of Mystique in franchise reboot X-Men: First Class (2011). Around this time, Lawrence scored the role of a lifetime when she was cast as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games (2012). – IMBd
