Clockwork Angel – My Cast

In honor of the Clockwork Angel week I decided to share with you my cast =)

I joined quotes of their description from the book, but they are from an ARC so please keep in mind that it might change in the final edition.


ellenpageEllen Page as Theresa Gray aka Tessa


I really love how sweet and vulnerable Ellen looks, it’s just perfect for Tessa, because that’s what she’s look like on the surface. But if know her better, you discover that she is determined and unstoppable.


“(…) Tessa had been perfectly content with her own smooth brown hair and steady gray eyes. (…) taller than most of the boys her own age



Gaspard Ulliel

 Gaspard Ulliel as William Herondale aka Will


Will is beautiful and cocky. He knows he looks good and uses it. He also always has that mysterious air to his face, like everything exasperates him and he knows something we don’t.

He had the most beautiful face she had ever seen. Tangled black hair and eyes like blue glass. Elegant cheekbones, a full mouth, and long, thick lashes. Even the curve of his throat was perfect. He looked like every fictional hero she’d ever conjured up in her head.”

HydeJem Carstairs cast by Hyde (Hideto Takarai)


He is a Japanese singer and I thought he had the perfect look for Jem! Jem is half Asian, and because of a health condition he has pale skin, hair and eyes. I imagine him with a slender face, but this is still the best photo a could find to represent him.


“(his hair) It was an odd bright silver color, like untarnished shilling. His eyes were the same silver, and his fine-boned face was angular, the slight curve of his eyes the only to his heritage.”


Hayden Panettiere as Jessamine Lovelace 


While she would never wear such an outfit because it’s not what a proper lady would wear, I think this picture really shows the fierceness Jessamine has in her.


She was almost ridiculously pretty, what one of Tessa’s novels would have called an English rose- all silvery fair hair, soft brown eyes, and creamy complexion.”



Kate Beckinsale as Charlotte Branwell


Charlotte is a petite and loving person, but there is such determination and fierceness to that woman. She is ready to anything and she’s in charge.

“Beside him stood a very small woman, almost child-size, with thick brown hair knotted at the nape of her neck, and a neat, clever little face with bright, dark eyes like a bird’s.”




Seth Green as Henry Branwell


Henry is a lovely man, but oh so distracted all the time. He is always lost in his thought, thinking of his inventions. He has a very kind heart.

“(…) a familiar-looking tall man, with a shock of ginger hair and hazel eyes

  1. GREAT CAST! Ellen Page would be aWESOME asTessa! And hate to admit but I like Hayden as Jessamyn. lol

  2. The cast looks great, I'll probably get mental images of them when I read the book now, lolol!!! XD I don't usually do that.

  3. *claps* Bravo. Very NICE choice of cast and well-backed up. ^_^

  4. Haven't read the book yet, but I ADORE your casting picks! They're awesome! :)

  5. Spot on for most of them!
    I don't really like Hayden as Jessamyn...
    And I pictured Olivia Williams as Charlotte (http://twitpic.com/2dwlfq), but I like your choice too!

  6. Wow this is an awesome cast! I really love Gaspard for Will and kate for Charlotte! The only one I'm a little ify on is Jessamine. But really awesome job!!! *prays for movie rights*

  7. I have yet to read the book, but I could so imagine Ellen Paige as Tessa (big Ellen fan).

    Great casting!

  8. Wow, I haven't read the book.. but I LOVE you cast picks!!! Especially, Hayden Panettiere, Gaspard Ulliel, and Ellen Page. Nice choices :)

  9. Travis - While I cretainly see why you'd pick Olivia Williams, I think she's way to old. Charlotte is only 22-23 years old.

  10. I don't agree with Ellen page as Tessa... definitely not who I pictured when I was reading. All the other cast picks are perfect though :)

  11. great cast but im not sure about ellen page...
    hyde and gaspard are perfect.. :)

  12. wow i always see gaspard and ellen in the book! gaspard with the gray coat looks absolutely just like will on the book cover :)

  13. Ellen Page is a good Tessa, but when I read the book, I sort of had imagined Danielle Campbell. I really love Jem here. I don't like Jessamine here and Gaspard shouldn't play Will. I dunno why, he just doesn't give the feeling.

  14. Perfect choice for Jem (despite the different Asian nationality, but the Japanese are so much prettier!!!) he has that adorable delicate look, exactly what I got from Jem's character, but also a strength that comes from the weight of his aliment which he projects through his wise advice to others.
    The others are well cast, but I'm most excited about Jem!!!

  15. Ellen Paige is way too short for Tessa. Tessa is described as being more on the tall side. She does have the sort of face I imagine her with though.

  16. i dont like the choice of jem his hair is too long
