Casting Call

So, as y'all probably remember from a previous blog post, I have already "cast" Josh Holloway as the Maddox Heller, the hero of FORBIDDEN TOUCH.

And really, is there any other person to play the role of ruthless CIA agent Alexander Quinn than my beloved Kiefer?

But I'm not sure who to cast as Iris Browning.

Here's what I know about her: She's 29-30 years old, shoulder-length dark brown hair, coffee-colored eyes, a little too slender (it's a plot point, though she's not anorexic or anything like that), and pretty without being a beauty queen type. I considered someone like Summer Glau:

But she's doesn't have quite the look I'm envisioning. But she's the general type.

Anyone have any suggestions? Art Fact Sheet time is fast approaching.

The actress from House? The actress from Mission Impossible 3? Paget Brewster from Criminal Minds? Cordelia from Angel?

There sure aren't many brown eyed girls, are there?

Paget's not quite right, either--I already considered her. Charisma's too old for the part. Michelle Monaghan is too sex-kittenish.

I'm a picky wench, aren't I? :)

Still looking...

That picture of the woman you have is awesome. I think she was in "Serenity" wasn't she? I just rented that and watched it again. Love her.

I know just what you mean. I'm having the same trouble coming up with a visual for my new heroine.

Google Tamara Feldman. She was on an episode of Supernatural, and she's dark haired, slender and young.

Hi Paula! I'm an old XF hand who just started up on Blogger myself and found your blog via a link from Southern Girl (who helped me get set up).

First, the feedback: I got "Forbbiden Territory" as a Christmas gift and loved it! I'll be grabbing up your others as they appear. As soon as I'm done with this comment, I'll be heading to Amazon to pre-order "Forbidden Temptation." :)

As for your question, she's a bit old for your range, but she looks much younger than she is: how about Jennifer Garner?
