  1. As I was going through, I kept thinking “aw, yeah, maybe… Yeah, okay. I can kind of see that.”
    Then I got to Matt Bomer and I was totally sold.
    Some excellent choices here.
    +1 for being a Gleek!

  2. MILES WOULD BE PERFECT Logan Lerman! daniel and alex would be perfect, there is much that daniel guy who knows ‘-‘

  3. Is Really, really, really a dream cast! I love Kaya Scodelario for Lucinda Price, Emma Watson for Arriane. Diana Agron for Gabbe, Matt Bomer for Steven, Samuel Larsen for Roland, Adam Gregory for Cam and Elle Page for Penn!! <3

  4. OMG, I thought that I was the only person who think Tim Pocock AS Daniel! Really, I read the books and then “Daniel Grigori is such like Tim Pocock… but like always, just me think that…” And now, I came here and ~OMG~ haha. Adam Gregory as Cam and Kaya a Luce would be awesome! And the others I liked too, but I don’t think the same about Miles, Shelby, Trevor and Steven… (PS.: I’m from Brazil c: )

  5. I think Alex Pettyfer should be Daniel !!♥ then could swap, Alex Pettyfer as Daniel and Tim Pocock as Trevor.
    The Kaya was perfect as Luce and Cam I think Brant Daugherty would be much better!
    Taylor Monsem should make Molly, I liked Samuel to make Roland and Diana to make Gabbe.
    Matt Bomer was perfect for Steven!! ♥
    The others were pretty cool, but I’d trade the Ariane, Shelby and Miles to other actors who look more!
    ;P

  6. I want Alex Pettyfer to be Daniel! All my friends who have read the series agree with me on this… I can’t see Luce as Kaya though, but that’s just my opinion!

  7. I´m Pretty sure that Alex Is more perfect for Daniel than no one else. And a lod of us think that.
    ALEX IS DANIEL.
    Luce Perfect.
    Logan for miles.
    Please, a Perfect Cam, no Adam, he is not perfect and… CAM MUST BE PERFECT
    PERFECT

  8. I really don’t know, why a lot of the Fallen fans always choose Alex Pettyfer for the character Daniel. I mean, does Alex look like he would fight till end for his love?? -For me not.

    Your cast is brilliant !! :)

  9. Alex Pettyfer should be Daniel and Brant Daugherty should be Cam. I really liked the idea of Kaya as Luce though.

  10. No estoy para nada de acuerdo con que Tim Pocock sea Daniel, no queda para nada con el personaje, es mucho mejor Alex Pettyfer para Daniel, el si encaja perfecto para el papel.
    Y Thomas Mann para Miles ??? nada que ver…no encaja para nada con el :/

  11. Please I beg you Lauren! Alex Pettyfer as Daniel Grigori, Kaya Scodelario as Lucinda Price, Brant Daugherty As Cameron Briel, Samuel Larsen As Roland Sparks, Dianna Agron How Gabrielle Givens, Ashley Benson How Shelby Sterris , Logan Lerman As Miles Fisher, Emma Roberts as Penn, Elizabeth Gillies How Arriane Alter

  12. Kate is perfect for Luce but I think Adam Gregory would be better as Daniel. Him and Kate look like a better couple than Kate and Alex Pettyfer. Alex would look better as Cam he looks more like a Cam. I think Tim Pucock would look like a better Trevor

  13. Some of us really don’t want Alex Pettyfer for Daniel I mean why not cast someone who is less famous? They said Fallen could be the next Twilight why not cast some guy with a clean record so that viewers could get to know someone NEW :) like maybe Alexander Ludwig?

  14. Please I beg you Lauren! Alex Pettyfer as Daniel Grigori, Kaya Scodelario as Lucinda Price, Brant Daugherty As Cameron Briel, Samuel Larsen As Roland Sparks, Dianna Agron How Gabrielle Givens, Ashley Benson How Shelby Sterris , Logan Lerman As Miles Fisher, Emma Roberts as Penn, Elizabeth Gillies How Arriane Alte

  15. Alex Pettyfer queda mejor como Daniel Grigorie es perfecto la decripcion del libro le pega mas a demas de que su personalidad va mas con el que nadie <3 Los demas me gustan como posibles actores excepto a daniel grigorie es mejor Alex harian mejor en escogerle.
    Alex Pettyfer should be Daniel…

  16. Molly isn’t hot enough, and miss sophia isnt old enough. Maybe go…Helen Mirren as Miss Sophia and Candice Accola or Taylor Momsen as Molly. Also…..idk….i pictured everyone looking more like high school aged, not in their 20’s….just saying

  17. I like a lot of these. I agree that Logan Lerman should be Miles, I totally see it. Alex, he could be a good Daniel, I like the Luce. I kind of pictured someone more prettier for Gabbe. How the book describes her, I think absolutely gorgeous. MAYBE Hayden Panettiere, but even that doesn’t look perfect. :p

  18. Ummmmm, Roland Sparks is black. I really disagree with who the fan chose to play to him. Corbin Blue perhaps? Kaya OMG yes, Cam ” THANK YOU ” Adam Gregory has always been on my list. I would like to see Alex Pettyfer as Daniel though. Tim Pocock I cant really see him as Daniel, barely. I think Arriane should be played by Jessica Stroup she reminds me of her a lot. The way she has played her character on 90210 fits well with Arriane’s rebellious attitude. Diana Argon, ummmmmm, ok yeah. Ana Paquin is someone I dont see as Ms. Sophia hmmmmm?

  19. Whilst I also agree that Alex Pettyfer would make an awesome Daniel there’s a slim chance that he’d actually accept the part, he turned down the part of Jace in TMI so I doubt he’d take this one…

  20. PERFECT CAST LIST! the only change i would make would be maybe to cast Logan Lerman as Cam, i really love his character and i think Logan could portray the sweet caring side of Cam we see in the final book plus it would be really interesting to see him portray the “bad boy” side of Cam after watching him in Perks!

  21. I still insist on having the outrageous suggestion that NO ONE seems to agree with in the slightest. But I am adamant that Katie McGrath would be a PERFECT Lucinda Price.
    <– Haters to the left. I stand by my choice.

  22. Lauren, I am sorry but every cast member I yelled the word “no”! You can’t have Emma Watson play Arianne, she’s such a strong character and as much as I love Emma Watson, she’s not good for this part! I was honestly looking forward to this, but now I’m just meh…..

  23. I’m really unsure about who should play Daniel but definitely not Tim Pocock. 100% NO. There are so much better actors mentioned in the comments! And LOGAN LERMAN is a perfect Miles and considering you did so well on the other characters I’m surprised you’ve mistaken that badly.

  24. I must say I love all the choice’s except for the one about Daniel,Adam Gregory is a way better choice in my opinion,based on the fact that Adam Gregory has that passion and drive in his eye’s that you read about in fallen with Daniels character.He really does fit the bill perfectly.

    1. That peanut is just the cutest! Thanks for saying about posting on your blog rather than on LJ as I wa&n;#8217st sure. It is just automatic to reply on there! Have a nice Christmas and New year!

  25. Please not alex pettyfer as daniel he would totally kill the character, he’s too plane and gray to me, he is fine being the supercial and “good looking” guy in every movie, but not in these movies, what we need is somebody new to love since the very beginning please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please SOMEONE NEW FOR DANIEL!!!!!

  26. Alex looks like a sissy boy…Daniel needs a strong manly/sexy actor to play him and honestly if it was Alex I don’t think I’d watch the movie because that would ruin it….

  27. I love your cast choices, Lauren! But I’d cast Alex Pettyfer as Daniel. And I really can’t picture Emma Watson as Arriane, I think Elizabeth Gillies would be a great option. Kaya as Luce is absolutely perfect. Huge love! x

  28. I think all are perfect except those playing Luce and Daniel which sucks like hell cause those are the main characters

  29. I do not like the choice for Daniel pls make him blonde! lol (even the face isn’t how i imagined Daniel to be) >.<

  30. NO!…Alex Pettyfer is Daniel!!!…India Easley should be Luce….and please, Elizabeth Gillies is the best Arriane!!

  31. I think Alex Pettyfer would make a Daniel Grigori and I don’t know why but I think Saoirse Ronan (Did I spell her name right? Lol) would make a better Miss Sophia/ one of the outcasts because of her beautiful yet light eyes.

  32. I’d put Nick Roux in for Miles…he played the friend who wanted more on Jane by Design and he is so talented and good looking. I think he’s currently just working on one project since the show ended, so he’d be a great catch for that role!

  33. I LOVE the ideas for Cam and Daniel…. I struggled with Daniel ideas, too, but when I watched Dance Academy, I fell in love With Tim…. Our visions are the same xD
    Especially with Cam, because that is EXACTLY how I imagined him, and I don’t even know of the actor you picked :))

  34. I absolutely LOVED your idea. Seriously, Cara playing the role of Molly?? Perfect! But I must admit that both speak of, was already in my head, Alex would be Daniel. But Tim is really beautiful and if he was Daniel, I love it too. The same happened with mortal Instruments – City of Bones … I thought Alex Pettyfer… but Jamie was chosen, at the beginning I did not like but then I found a great choice. Your choices are great and I think the Queen Lauren Kate will choose a wonderful cast and it will be the dream of every Fallenatics. Congrats.
    Ps: I’m from Brazil and Fallen is one of my favorite books, I am very excited waiting for the cast and the movie!

  35. I agree with only one of them and that’s Matt Bomer as Steven. I think that’s the perfect choice out of them all and I think he should be considered to being cast for real.

  36. You’re casting is amazing, it seems perfect for all the characters except for Samuel Larsen as Roland Sparks. I don’t really visualized him as it is, maybe another actor though :)

  37. I still think Lucy Hale would be perfect for Luce! I think that you chose well for Cam, Roland, Sophia, Shelby, Miles and Francesca. I wouldn’t go for the rest though.. they couldn’t pull it off!

  38. all the casts are perfect EXCEPT Daniel! please make Alex Pettyfer as Daniel or pick somebody else. Adam Gregory is perfect for cam! 😀

  39. I like the Luce idea, Mr. Cole and Luce’s parents are good ones, but everyone else I really can’t see any of them playing those parts Alex would be much more better to play Daniel that’s the way I think everyone else pictured Daniel like him.

  40. This is a great list! I think A.P. as Daniel is overrated! And Emma Watson as Arraine, I never thought of that! great choice! Have you considered who would play Phil? (outcast). And what about Molly and Anna? Your Choice for Gabbe was great as well, all in all the best even if i have others in mind in some places. Also, no offense of course, I think Sophia needs a few more lines in her face, nothing under 40 and nothing over 30…… All and all good job!

  41. OMG LOVE the winning cast!! Gave me shivers just looking at the images and reading the descriptions… close to my imagination and the cast isn’t overly crowded by famous actor/actress so it gives a fresh judgment of character in the movie.
    Hope the cast is close to the winnings!
    So far, Cam, Luce, Molly, Roland, Randy, Mr. Cole, Steven, Gabbe winnings are super awesome!

  42. I think Kaya is just perfect for Luce’s role, but Tim is not that great choice for Daniel’s role… don’t gate me wrong I know that Tim is a good actor,but Daniel is too complex charecter for him while Alex Pettifer is a great choice for Daniel’s role…regarding Cam, Adam is an interesting choice..but I’ve always pictured Cam as a “bad boy” so maybe Adam should change him look a bit for this role, maybe let to look more “dangerous” :)) As for Francesca, I couldn’t thought myself for a better actress..January Jones is, indeed, PERFECT for that role.

  43. After reading a few comments, I gotta say while Alex Pettyfer is a babe, he’s too weedy to play Daniel. Daniel needs big shoulderrrrrssssss hnnnnggggggg *drool*

    ANYWAY

    I was gonna say, impressive list – couple of surprises!!!! But I approve :)

    um…. soo….

    IS ANYONE ELSE EXCITED FOR ZOEY DEUTCH IN VAMPIRE ACADEMY THOUGH?? EH? EH?????
    …..*cough*

  44. yay!! someone else who can picture Samuel as Roland. The moment i saw Samuel on the glee project me and my friend were like ‘omg its Roland!!!’ lol, but Alex Pettyfer is the perfect Daniel. He’s so ‘angelic’ lol

  45. Please I beg you Lauren! Alex Pettyfer as Daniel Grigori, Kaya Scodelario as Lucinda Price, Brant Daugherty As Cameron Briel, Samuel Larsen As Roland Sparks, Dianna Agron How Gabrielle Givens, Ashley Benson How Shelby Sterris , Logan Lerman As Miles Fisher, Emma Roberts as Penn, Elizabeth Gillies How Arriane Alter

  46. I dont feel Tim Pocock is not cute enough to play Daniel. I would prefer Chris Zylka. He has strong angelic features, great body & is not so famous. I really liked Lucy Hale as Luce. Kaya looks to scary. If not Lucy, Zoey Deutch would actually make a great Luce too . Love Diana Agron for Gabby, but prefer Elizabeth Gillies for Arriane Emma Watson is too good girl looking. I can see Adam Gregory as Cam. The rest I am not worried about.

  47. @Thays Barbara, i totaly agree with you hes perfect for it :3, i dont think emma watson would be a good choice though..mabe someone else, i pictured her as a slighly crazy chick lol i have many friends like her 😀

  48. as a follow up comment: maybe some one that looks a little like Helena Carter, Tilda Swinton or even Bryce Howard they have that edgy look but slightly crazy look that arriane needs 😀

  49. You should totally cast the top 3 with those who usually play supporting roles and not leads so as to “balance” it? I kinda agree with Ellen Page as Penn coz you need someone REALLY famous in the cast like Twilight had Dakota Fanning. GO WITH ALEXANDER LUDWIG PLEASE HEHE.

  50. … i think alex pettyfer is perfect for daniel grigori.. and logan lerman for miles.. :) kaya is a good choice and the rest :)

  51. I defiantly agree with all but one. Alex Pettyfer is the clear and perfect choice for Daniel not just because he a TOTAL FREAKING BABE but because he is a very versatile actor who could bring so much to Danial’s character!!

  52. I agree and found my self wanting to scream “Yes they’re perfect!!!!!!!” but I can’t….I’m at school. But this is near close to the perfect cast. Maybe a different person for Daniel. I see someone a little younger looking. Maybe in his early 20’s. He looks a little older than a typical Daniel.

  53. Okay, Alex Pettyfer definitely IS Daniel Grigori. He’s just perfect to play the character, and I don’t think the people of organize the cast see this. Guys, Alex Pettyfer for Daniel, please!

  54. Nooooooo :( Lucy Hale as LUCE and Alex Pettyfer as Daniel…:(( Brant Daugherty as Cameron and others can be whoever :(

  55. as i was reading the first book, i always thought of Alex Pettyfer as a great Daniel. Cam i saw as maybe a Matt Lanter. I could never real picture any specific actress as Luce, because when i read a book i really enjoy, i like to think if myself as the main charectar. If i had to chose someone, possibly Alice Englert. She was just so dark and amazing in beautiful creatures.

  56. Alex for Daniel please.. Adam for Cam is good.
    Emma Watson in this cast?? Idon’t think so. She’s good for Hermione.

  57. I love the chosen characters except for some.

    I always think of Alex Pettyfer whenever I read about Daniel. Or, Avan Jogia. They’re great, talented actors and their pulchritude is just angelic (and hot). Bone structure, body figure, nice eyes, charismatic smiles, whatever you can add on… all check! Next, I really think Elizabeth Gillies (Jade West from “Victorious”) is perfect for the role of Arriane Alter. She’s strong and she rocks!

    Well, Callan, Emma, Ellen, Samuel, and Diana are ideal for their respective roles (and I’m looking forward to see them in the movie). The list is not really that bad, though. :) (But to tell you honestly, I felt disappointed seeing Alex at the bottom of the lest :()

  59. I’ve always see Daniel Grigori being played by Alex Pettyfer but…… Her cast was awesome the characters she choose I wouldn’t have thought of so great job Girl!!!

  60. Honestly the fallen angels and Luce and Lucifer have to be played by characters that represent perfectly ! they have to look exactly like or so very close look alike because if not, it’ll ruin the movie. Yet Daniel has to be perfect ! <3 ( & Cam and Luce too ) ^~^

  61. I think everyone is good except for Daniel an Luce they need to be different cause when I imagine Daniel I don’t think of someone like him

  62. you should have placed alex pettyfer as daniel since he is good in portraying a strong yet emotional character. as i understand daniel, he is a very strong man who fights for his love and yet an emotional man who can’t stand losing someone he loves. alex have all the aspects i expect from the book. so please consider. :)

  63. While I may not agree with the choices, i admire her dedication and loyalty to the books! Congratulations on being the winner! I’m soooo jealous :)

  64. i agree with almost eeryone els i really belive that alex pettyfer should have played as daniel grigory. he fights for love and whenever i think daniel i see him as it i really want him to be the guy for the film. plz consider this ppl
    and ofcourse lauren kate

  65. I agree with everyone she chose expect for Luce and daniel.
    For Luce i was thinking Lilly Collins She is exactly what i pictured. And for Daniel I was thinking Chace Crawford. But everyone else she chose is perfect! I’ m truly hoping to see Samuel larson as roland he is exactly what I pictured him to look like!

  66. honestly!! I dont think, that the one who was picked as Daniel isn’t fit for the character… i think Alex Pettyfer is the BEST choice!! please reconsider!! 😀

  67. that sounds great! didn’t think of tim playing daniel, it would be okay but i think i would prefer alex pettyfer :) and im sorry but i dont really like your choice for roland, otherwise best cast ever!!! good job :))

  68. no offense girls, i know alex pettyfer is hot but it’s kinda overrated if he gets the role. i think they should get someone who is less known…

  69. i think Alex Pettyfer should play Daniel. The way she writes about him in the book Alex already has the hair , the charm, the body, the ladies love him. He can really get into the roll of Daniel. Alex Pettyfer will be the right pick. I hope he gets the role<3

  70. I think Alex Pettyfer should play Daniel.I often project him as Daniel.when I read the series, he definitly should play Daniel! So please, choose him!

  71. I think Alex Pettyfer should play Daniel and maybe Lucy Hale for Luce and someone with a little bit more of an attitude for Arriane. Just my opinion :)

  72. I think these are good choices. I’m not sold on the one for Daniel, nor Alex Pettyfer, like everyone else thinks. When I saw a pic of Chris Zylka…I immediately thought of Daniel. I know this is just a “dream cast”, but anyway…

  73. Well, I have to say, these are great choices for the cast! Although, I don’t agree with two… I have it in my mind that Miss Sophia was a bit older? And I pictured Daniel being portrayed by a guy with more sculpted mysterious angelic features, soulfull eyes and full lips, not someone with sharper features like Tim? otherwise I like the rest! Cam is perfect, and I can really picture Luce like that. Emma would make a great Arrianne :)

  74. I don’t agree with some, but the other ones are amazing! Especially Cara for Molly, that would be perfect. I’ve always dreamed Logan Lerman for Miles, he is just perfect for the role! He’s so sweet and cute yet sexy, it would be flawless.

  75. I like the choices except daniel and Cam. I always pictured alex as daniel which I think everybody has already said and I pictured Tom Sturridge from like Minds as Cam. He has the awesome black hair like Cam, I am pretty sure he has green eyes (the guy you picked had blue) and he is extremely hot just like Cam. I really do hope Kaya, Daniel, & Tom get to play the main characters.

  76. I agree with all of the casts except Daniel character. I think Drew Van Acker – Jason DiLaurentis from Pretty Little Liars would be perfect for Daniel. He has this breathtaking look. Other than that, love the whole casts!!!

  77. hey there’s always gonna be people that disagree but its not even the real cast list and no one cares who you think is better for the part. get over it!

  78. I love the books and when i read them i always pictures Alex Pettyfer as Daniel, i hope that he is casted as Daniel, besides that i love the rest of the Dream Cast. Cannot wait for the film. Excited much <3

  79. I think Alex Pettyfer would be the PERFECT Daniel Grigori <3 he is handsome and in some ways misterious! Cam should be more sexy something like this guy called Brant Daugherty . I dont like Diana Agron as Gabbe maybe you could change her for Ashley Benson! And I also desagree with Emma Roberts as Shelby! I don't know I imagine her like more mature… older! You should really reconsider it if you want your movie to be a HIT!

  80. My dream cast would be Jessica Lowndes for Luce, Liam Hemsworth as Daniel, and Drew Roy as Cam! As for the other characters I would probably do Ksenia Solo as Arriane, Mae Whitman as Penn, Alexandra Daddario as Molly, Amber Valletta as Miss Sophia, Willa Holland as Callie, and Nick Roux as Miles.

    I think the rest of the Dream Cast would be fitting!

  81. I agree with nearly all of the characters choosen. Except Daniel. I dont think Tim Pocock would be right, he is fantastic in Dance Academy but I dont think he would suit the role very well.

    I’d have to agree with ‘Valentina Paz Gajardo Rivera’ with her description of Cam! I loved him from the start, even when he was a jerk, haha 😀

  82. I don’t think Alex should get to play Daniel. Although I love him and I think he’s freakin hot, he’s not really what I imagined Daniel would look like. To me, Daniel is the kind of guy you take one look at and you see kindness, strength, and love in his eyes. Sure he’s good looking, he is an Angel, but that’s not what you should love most about a character. When I look at Alex I see a hot guy who is probably a heart breaker. I also think the the character that you picked for Callie should be Luce’s character. I imagined her as a person that you can easily read with one glance. The girl you cast as Luce looks too in your face and she looks like a bad girl, which Luce is not. The girl you cast as Callie looks more innocent. Just my thoughts….:)

  83. I really love a lot of these choices, particularly the selections of Matt Bomer, January Jones, Anna Paquin, Dot Jones, Emma Roberts and Diana Argon.

    I have a few of my own personal favorites for some of the main characters that I just wanted to share; Lucy Hale as Luce, Lily Collins as Arrianne, Alex Pettyfer as Daniel, and Tyler Hoechiln as Cam (especially this one) :)

  84. I also think that kaya is a good actress for luce but I always see in lauren mcknight the perfect luce. I think that alex pettyfer is the perfect daniel, and when I think in ariane I always see Emma stone and not Emma watson. But I really loved this cast :3

  85. I know who is playing all the characters it took days of reaserch look on comeing soon .net kaya is luce Alex petrifying is Daniel and Adam Greg is cam you’ll figure out the rest on the sight if you interested have a good one clara

  86. I Think Alex Pettyfer for Daniel.. He Is very good looking.. Everyone else is absolutely perfect.. Can’t Wait!! :’D

  87. Alex Pettyfer For Daniel.. He is very sexy.. Everyone else is absolutely perfect.. Can’t Wait For The Fallen Movie!!!!! ;D

  88. it’s really great cast BUT i don’t agree with Daniel i carml believe that Daniel’s role must play it Alex Pettyfer. From the begining i imagined Alex in that role he is so handsome and i think he is the PERFECT Daniel. Kaya and Alex will be the perfect dueto!

  89. This is a joke,right? Because this is horrible at it’s fullness. Except maybe for Luce and Penny but they already have Luce so that leaves this in to the trash. Emma as Arriane? Thomas as Miles? Adam as Cambriel? No,hell NO!

  90. The guy cast as Daniel is just not hot enough. The others are okay (though I imagined miss Sophia as a brunette) – but the guy playing Daniel just isn’t hot enough for the job. I’m sorry.

  91. Alex Pettyfer should play Daniel or Cam but the other thing i want to comment is whats with cam at the end. I never get to know everyone is all like youll find out plz tell me
